Emergency Heart Care You Can Count On
For many individuals, the first sign of heart disease begins with a heart attack. Our comprehensive heart care program begins the second you enter our emergency room, where we quickly assess your condition and proceed with the appropriate cardiac diagnostic services.
If intervention is necessary, you will go to our cardiac cath lab for angioplasty, where a small balloon is placed and inflated to open blocked heart arteries. The American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association recommends a less than 90 minute door-to-balloon time. Over the past year, Mercy Gilbert's average time has been less than 75 minutes.

Cardiac Diagnostic Services
Mercy Gilbert offers a number of cardiac diagnostic services to identify and treat heart disease. Through noninvasive and invasive testing we can determine if you have heart disease and the best course of treatment.
Cardiopulmonary refers to how your heart and lungs work together. When a problem begins in one of these vital organs often times a secondary issue occurs in the other organ. At Mercy Gilbert our cardiopulmonary services provide diagnostic testing and treatments for cardiology, neurology and respiratory issues.

Heart Disease Prevention
Any sports fan knows the best defense is often times the best offense. Your best defense for heart disease is prevention. Your risk for heart disease increases with age and/or if you have a close family member who had heart disease at an early age. Even if you are not living a healthy lifestyle now, it is not too late to start.
Heart Disease Treatment
Heart disease treatments vary based on the severity of your disease. Someone who is high risk for developing coronary heart disease will have a different treatment plan than someone who has already suffered a heart attack.
