The International Heart Institute of Montana (IHI) brings together a recognized team of cardiologists, heart surgeons, nurses and researchers to perform advanced cardiac procedures and to search for new and improved ways to treat heart disease. Founded in 1995, IHI involves physicians and staff of St. Patrick Hospital and The University of Montana. IHI has clinics located throughout Western Montana, including Missoula, Hamilton, and Butte. IHI physicians travel to other communities to help maintain heart health across our region.
The staff at the International Heart Institute understands that families and loved ones have unique needs and concerns, and are an important part of the healing process. Our specialists, nurses and staff are committed to keeping you informed throughout the process. We make sure your questions are answered and your family's needs are met during hospitalization and outpatient care. We will communicate promptly with your personal physician.
Take care of your heart so you can enjoy everything Montana has to offer! And if you have a problem, come see us—we'll help you get back out there!
