Heart Services

We offer a full range of diagnostic and treatment options for cardiac and vascular conditions, for patients with:

  • A family history of coronary artery disease
  • A recent heart attack
  • A heart murmur that’s growing worse
  • Heart rhythm abnormalities, including a fluttering heartbeat
  • Fainting problems
  • Heart deformities
  • Heart failure

We offer several specialized programs to help treat your heart problem.

  • Cardiac Rehab Program: helps patients recover from a serious cardiac event, such as a heart attack.
    • Helps patients who have congestive heart failure and helps patients recover from a serious cardiac event, such as a heart attack.
  • Electrophysiology: helps patients deal with heart rhythm disorders such as atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias.
  • Heart Failure Program: helps patients cope with a heart failure diagnosis.
  • Interventional and Endovascular Cardiovascular Program: uses minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat cardiovascular conditions.
  • Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR): TAVR is a minimally invasive treatment option for Aortic Valve Stenosis. This is a procedure in which a small cut is made in the groin area and a thin, flexible tube with a new artificial heart valve is guided through an artery in the leg up to the diseased heart valve. Once the new valve is placed into the patient’s diseased heart valve, it begins working immediately.

    Patients, on average, have a one-night hospital stay and are discharged home the next day. Patients are expected to participate in an outpatient cardiac rehab program, starting a few weeks after the procedure.

    To set up an initial appointment to see if TAVR is right for you, please contact the Structural Heart Coordinator at (740) 434-7768.

Free Vascular Screening and VasTrac

VasTrac – Early Detection Vascular Screenings

Our free, non-invasive VasTrac screening program is tackling vascular disease from several fronts-prevention, screening, and the most advanced treatments. This means earlier detection and a higher chance of recovery. Vascular screenings are particularly helpful for anyone with a family history of early onset of heart disease, persistent leg pain, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or a personal history of smoking. To be eligible for our free screening:

  • You must be 18 years of age or older
  • One patient per scheduled visit
  • Your last vascular screening with Memorial Health System was at least five years ago

Cardiac Rehabilitation Services

Our Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is an essential component of your recovery, helping patients with heart disease, heart attacks, or other heart-related disorders, resume an active lifestyle. Our nationally certified program combines medical supervision, cardiac monitoring, education, dietary, and individual counseling, with a progressive exercise program to help you reach and maintain a high level of heart fitness.

Once you’re referred by a provider, we begin with a thorough assessment with one of our providers and one of our cardiac rehab nurses, tailoring a cardiac rehab program that meets your needs.

Our cardiac rehab program offers many benefits. It can improve the ability to carry out activities of daily living, reduce heart disease risk factors, improve quality of life, improve outlook and emotional stability, and increase the knowledge of heart disease and how you can manage it properly.
