Heart disease remains a leading threat to the health of Americans. That’s why our experienced cardiac team is committed to delivering expert care for your heart. We believe in treating the whole person, not just the disease. At North Vista Hospital, you can expect a personalized, coordinated approach and the caring attention you deserve — all aimed toward achieving great results.
We offer a broad array of heart-related services, all delivered with compassion and exceptional expertise:
Chest Pain Response
Is it heartburn — or a heart attack? A fast answer to that question could save your life. If you feel chest pain, our Emergency Department provides prompt care. Special processes for people with chest pain help our team quickly diagnose whether a patient is experiencing a heart attack.
Cardiac catheterization helps doctors evaluate how well the heart is functioning and whether there are blocked arteries. During the procedure, a cardiologist inserts a very thin flexible tube into a major vein and navigates it to the arteries around the heart. Using advanced imaging technology, the doctors can see whether there is plaque build-up in the heart’s vessels. Since cardiac catheterization is a minimally invasive procedure, most patients can go home the same day.
Our hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that can produce clear, detailed views of the human heart and help doctors detect heart disease with pinpoint accuracy. Our advanced diagnostic testing capabilities include:
- 64-slice CT Scanner
- MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
- Nuclear Medicine Camera
- Stress Testing
Treatment for Arrhythmia
We provide a variety of services for patients with irregular heartbeats, including implantation and management of pacemakers.
