Why St. Mary’s Health System

Our clinical cardiologists can diagnose, confirm and manage heart disease. We focus on prevention and patient-centered care – with the goal of helping patients overcome or successfully manage their heart condition. We work with each patient and their health care team to develop treatment plans that consider the full picture of the patient’s health and lifestyle needs. We are committed to the highest level of patient care and the discovery and development of better treatments for cardiovascular diseases.

Our imaging and diagnostics services provide essential information for diagnosing cardiac issues, monitoring heart health and measuring treatment effectiveness. We use state-of-the-art equipment such as computed tomography (CT), cardiac ultrasound (echocardiography), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear imaging (PET and SPECT) and angiography. Your clinical cardiologist will coordinate your care with other physicians and surgeons, if necessary.

Cardiology Subspecialists at St. Mary’s

If you have a very fast, very slow or irregular heart rhythm, an electrophysiologist (EP) is the specialist you would see for care. Our EPs perform catheter ablations and implant electrical devices such as pacemakers and cardioverter-defibrillators.

Heart failure occurs when the heart is not pumping like it should. Your heart cannot pump enough oxygen-rich blood to all the organs in your body. Therefore, patients benefit from seeing a heart failure specialist, who is a specialty cardiologist with experience and expertise in managing symptoms and delaying the progression of the disease. When symptoms reach a certain degree of severity, our team will provide counsel on sophisticated treatments, such as a left ventricular assist device or heart transplantation, and care.
