Heart Care

Heart care at Baptist Health focuses on the functions and disorders of the heart and its connected circulatory system. According to the American Heart Association, 84 million people in the U.S. suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease, affecting blood flow throughout the body. Cardiovascular disease can lead to heart attacks, strokes or other serious complications.

Taking good care of your heart can help reduce your risk of developing heart disease that leads to a heart attack, stroke or other serious complications. Our cardiac care teams provide complete heart care services – from helping you create a heart-healthy lifestyle to performing lifesaving procedures in emergency situations.

Chest Pain Center

Baptist Health is an accredited Chest Pain Center by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care. That means our cardiologists, our staff and our facility have met or surpassed the most rigorous standards of excellence to become the only place you want to be when heart attack strikes. And because we’re close to home, treatment can begin at once.

We work to ensure that patients who arrive at the hospital complaining of chest pain or other symptoms of a heart attack receive the treatment necessary during the critical window of time when the integrity of the heart muscle can be preserved.
