As part of Community Physician Network, the heart and vascular physicians at Community Westview Hospital offer patients a highly-coordinated approach to personalized care, treatment and follow-up. Our doctors use today's most advanced tools to diagnose and treat heart and vascular disease in people who may be at high-risk, such as those with a family history of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or those nearing middle age and worried about their heart health. Cardiac patients can expect access to a full range of cardiology and vascular care that includes high-quality diagnostic testing, complex coronary and vascular interventions, skilled cardiac and vascular surgeons, and a team of specialized personnel.
For complex cardiac care, Community Heart and Vascular Hospital is located less than 15 miles away. It is known for innovation, quality of care and outstanding patient outcomes, and was one of the nation’s first all-digital cardiovascular specialty hospitals.
