Prevention and Wellness

Anyone, at any age, can take simple steps to help prevent heart disease. Presence Health is here to provide the education and inspiration to ensure you don’t miss a beat.

Start with our quick and simple online heart risk assessment. In just a few minutes, you’ll learn your personal risk factors for heart attack and stroke. It includes an instant report to share with your doctor or one of our skilled cardiologists.

Also learn to separate fact from fiction with these common myths about heart disease – and be sure to sign up for our ongoing community classes and events to help you live your healthiest life.

Early Detection and Diagnosis

If you think you may be at risk for heart disease, or just want to stay proactive, we offer regular heart screenings that can help catch any problems in their earliest and most treatable stages.

You also have access to the most advanced heart and vascular imaging technology in the region for a fast and accurate diagnosis. That includes the first CT scanner in the world that adapts to the size of any patient, scanning the entire body in seconds. We also offer the latest technology for echocardiograms (ECG) and electrocardiograms (EKGs), plus cardiac MRI and Innova® digital angiography and more for crystal-clear, lightning-fast results.

Comprehensive Treatment

If you’re diagnosed with a heart condition, rest assured you’re in highly skilled and caring hands. Your Presence Health team will work closely with you to create a personal heart treatment plan, which may include medication and other nonsurgical solutions.

For more complex conditions, we offer advanced heart surgical options at hospitals ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report for our quality, safety and superior outcomes. We specialize in minimally invasive techniques like off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery, which lets your surgeon operate on a beating heart without the need for a heart-lung machine.

It’s all available close to home, which means less traveling and more healing.

Personalized Rehabilitation

Get back to your life faster following a heart event or surgery with our nationally accredited cardiac rehabilitation. Our skilled and caring staff will work with you to create a plan tailored to your unique needs and provide the support you need at every step. Programs are offered on both an inpatient, outpatient and home care basis, and are designed to help you strengthen your heart, decrease symptoms and enjoy an active, healthier life.

Ongoing Support

Heart disease can impact you both physically and emotionally, as well as those you love. Our regular heart support groups offer you and your support system the chance to connect with others who understand what you’re going through, plus learn practical ways to live your healthiest life.
