Heart & Vascular Care at Baptist Memorial
Every 34 seconds, someone in the United States has a heart attack.
Heart and vascular conditions affect millions of Americans, and those living in Southern states like Mississippi and Tennessee are especially affected. In fact, studies have shown that Mississippians have some of the highest rates of cardiovascular problems in the country.
Located in the heart of the south, Baptist Memorial Health Care understands the importance of high quality heart and vascular services for diagnosis, treatment and prevention. That’s why the centerpiece of the Baptist system is the Baptist Heart Institute. The best part about this facility is the convenience – it combines all cardiovascular services in one facility to support high-quality care, research, education and data management. The Baptist Heart Institute also offers the following:
- Surgery addition
- Cardiac catheterization labs
- Pre and post cardiac patient staging area
- Cardiopulmonary transplant unit
- Cardiovascular recovery/cardiovascular intensive care unit
- Two cardiac medicine units
- Cardiac intervention unit
Patients who are at risk for heart problems or who currently have a heart or vascular condition can turn to Baptist for all of their heart care needs. Baptist is the only health care system in the Mid-South to offer the full spectrum of cardiovascular care, from non-invasive cardiology to heart transplantation.
Not only are we ready and able to treat heart and vascular patients, we’re also advocates for wellness and prevention by helping patients to control or reduce risk factors. Through rehabilitation facilities, Baptist helps patients evaluate their risk for heart disease, advocates good lifestyle choices and educates patients about heart disease. Not only do we provide care for the sick, we also strive to help people stop heart disease before it begins.
