About Us

St. John Providence Health System is Leading Southeast Michigan in Heart and Vascular Care

Our Heart and Vascular Center of Excellence is a network of some of the country’s most skilled cardiac physicians, nurses, clinicians and researchers located at three outstanding heart hospitals and multiple outpatient sites throughout Southeastern Michigan. Working together, we provide the latest treatments and techniques in heart and vascular care. In fact, we treat more cardiac patients than any other hospital in Southeast Michigan.

St. John Providence Health System (SJPHS) excels in cardiovascular surgery and intervention, peripheral vascular intervention and heart rhythm management. We offer specialized Cardiology Clinics to provide advanced care for hard-to-manage chronic cardiac conditions. Plus, we are the only health system in the state with three Blue Distinction Centers for Cardiac Care as recognized by the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.


SJPHS is also proud all three of its heart hospitals, Providence Hospital, St. John Macomb-Oakland Hospital, and St. John Hospital and Medical Center, have been ranked as top hospitals in the state of Michigan and the United States for heart care.


The SJPHS Heart and Vascular Center of Excellence has developed an extensive research program actively engaged in every aspect of clinical cardiovascular research through partnerships with major academic institutions and pharmaceutical and device companies. Because of this commitment, our physicians have access to the very latest therapies, devices and interventional techniques, often before these innovations are released to nonacademic cardiac centers. In addition, we offer a thriving cardiology fellowship program.

The next generation of advanced treatment

We recently launched the Gretchen C. Valade Cardiovascular Hybrid Laboratory and Minimally Invasive Structural Heart Program including an integrated (hybrid) operating room/cardiac cath lab, the state’s first. This will allow us to provide the latest transcatheter valve therapies, which integrate surgical procedures with skin incisions and intervention. The lab will offer fixed imaging systems dedicated to the latest advances in minimally invasive cardiovascular interventions, designed to deliver better visualization of the blood vessels with lower doses of radiation. The hybrid operating room/cardiac cath lab will also have great potential for select rhythm disorders, endovascular valve repair and other advanced procedures:

  • ASD repair
  • Endovascular Aortic Aneurysm Repair
  • Endovascular Thoracic Aneurysm Repair
  • 3D CT
  • 3D TEE
  • IVUS
  • Minimally Invasive Left Ventricular Assist Device
  • Robotic Revascularization
  • Robotic Mitral Valve Repair

CoreValve Clinical Trial

SJH&MC has been selected to take part in a clinical trial to evaluate a non-surgical alternative to open-heart surgery for patients with severe aortic stenosis, a common heart problem caused by an abnormal narrowing of the heart’s aortic valve.
