We've all had to mend a broken heart, but some hearts require a little extra help. Heart disease has become the leading cause of death in the United States, affecting one third of American adults - or 800,000 men and women - and claiming a life every 37 seconds.
Nevertheless, there is tremendous hope and promise as medical advances offer more possibilities than ever before for detecting, treating and even preventing disorders. Chilton Medical Center is leading the fight with a growing continuum of premier heart services. Anchored by a new, state-of-the-art Cardiovascular Interventional Lab, our program delivers a broad array of diagnostic and therapeutic options that represent the latest innovations in heart, vascular and stroke care - from life-saving angioplasty to a breakthrough intervention that literally puts a heart that's stopped beating on ice. Furthermore, Chilton treats each patient with an unparalleled level of compassionate, personalized and expedient care that begins the moment of arrival and continues all the way through recovery.
Our Heart and Vascular Care boasts many distinguishing features, including:
