Our Services

  • Cardiac Imaging

    Cardiac Imaging includes echocardiography, nuclear cardiac imaging, CT angiography and cardiac MRI. Your cardiac physician may order imaging tests to diagnosis your condition.
  • Cardiopulmonary Testing

    Cardiopulmonary testing provides patients with a variety of non-invasive tests of the heart and lungs to help respiratory therapists and cardiologists diagnose lung disease and heart damage.
  • Device Clinic

    The Device Clinic serves patients with state-of-the-art equipment to test, care and analyze all types of implantable cardiac devices (ICD) by cardiac experts.
  • Heart & Vascular

    Our heart and vascular team includes cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists, clinical cardiologists, thoracic surgeons, vascular surgeons and advanced practice providers. We provide a full spectrum of cardiac care.
  • Heart Valve Center

    The term heart valve disease is commonly used when a valve either fails to open properly (stenosis) or fails to close completely, allowing backward flow of blood (regurgitation).
  • Men's Heart Health Program

    The Men’s Heart Health Program is a comprehensive way to prevent, diagnose and treat heart disease in men. The goal of this program is to not only identify and reduce traditional risk factors for heart disease, but also to educate men in the areas of nutrition and exercise.
  • Pulmonary Function Testing

    The full service pulmonary function testing lab is operated by experienced staff members that perform testing in a safe setting, making patient comfort a priority.
  • Thoracic Surgery

    If you have a condition that affects your lungs or chest, thoracic surgery may help improve your quality of life. Examples of issues range from chest wall deformity to pleural effusion and tracheal disorder.
  • Watchman Implant

    The WATCHMAN™ implant is a device utilized as an alternative to long-term warfarin medication to reduce stroke risk in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation.
  • Women's Heart Health Program

    The Women’s Heart Health Program is a comprehensive way to prevent, diagnose and treat heart disease in women. Heart disease may be especially difficult to diagnose in women as they may have different symptoms than men. This program helps women to identify and treat risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
  • Cardiac MRI

    Radiographic studies, such as cardiac MRI and cardiac CT scan, are called imaging tests. They allow the healthcare provider to check for problems in the heart. The tests are painless and noninvasive. Your child’s healthcare provider will discuss with you why your child needs one or both of these tests. Most MRI tests take 30 to 60 minutes. Depending on the type of MRI your child is having, the test may take longer. Give yourself extra time to check your child in.
  • Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

    For patients with severe aortic stenosis, there may be an alternative option to open-heart surgery. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement, known as TAVR, is a minimally invasive option available to some patients.
  • Vascular Surgery

    Our specialists continually study the latest methods and techniques to treat all forms of peripheral vascular disease affecting cerebral, thoracic, upper extremity, abdominal and lower extremity circulations.
  • Cardiac Surgery

    Providence offers the latest surgical techniques and innovations, performed by experienced board-certified cardiothoracic surgeons.
  • Cardiology
