Cardiac Diagnosis and Treatment

The Providence Heart Institute offers complete, centralized cardiac diagnostic services including echocardiography, catheterization lab, recovery and cardiology support services in one unit, providing patients, families, staff and physicians a convenient, pleasant environment. Cardiac diagnostic testing is a very important tool for detecting heart disease.  With heart disease still the number one killer in the United States, early detection results in the prevention of heart attacks rather than the treatment of heart attacks and subsequent heart damage.

The cardiac group at Providence is made up of two components: cardiologists and cardiac surgeons.  Each group performs different functions, yet they work together.

Cardiologists are clinicians and specialists in internal medicine who have had several years of additional training in cardiovascular disease.  They rely on history taking, background assimilation and physical examination to determine the presence and extent of heart disease.  When the medical evaluation indicates that a procedure is necessary, the cardiologist has a number of procedures from which to choose, both non-invasive and invasive.

Providence has a highly sophisticated 15-bed nursing unit (CVICU) for critically ill heart patients including those undergoing cardiac surgery.  Specialized teams work together to ensure patients receive the highest quality intensive care and family receive the needed support.
