Heart and Vascular Center

Advanced cardiac care to get you back to those you love.

Memorial's Heart and Vascular Center offers a team of cardiac specialists who have trained at some of the most renowned medical programs in the country. Memorial and The Chattanooga Heart Institute integrated services in early 2011. The 22 board-certified cardiologists at The Chattanooga Heart Institute have led the region's largest diagnostic, treatment, research and rehabilitation center dedicated solely to cardiovascular care for the past 33 years. Advanced heart care to get you back to the life you love…and the people you inspire by living it.

Four times the surgical expertise
For better patient outcomes, the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology recommend that a facility meet or exceed a minimum volume of 200 cardiac procedures per year. Memorial performs more than 800. That's four times the national minimum. And we perform twice as many open heart procedures as any other area hospital.

Advanced Diagnosis and Interventions
Memorial and Memorial Hixson hospitals each provide imaging services that include echocardiography, stress echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography and nuclear cardiology. Memorial Hospital has five cardiac catheterization laboratories, two electrophysiology laboratories and one tilt room for specialized cardiac testing.

Accredited Emergency Care
Emergency Centers at Memorial and Memorial Hixson hospitals are each Accredited Chest Pain Centers. When a heart attack patient arrives, our Chest Pain Protocol is put into action to open their clogged arteries in the shortest “door to balloon” time possible. The national benchmark for treating heart attack patients is 90 minutes from the time they arrive. The heart specialists at Memorial beat the standard for opening clogged arteries and average 49 minutes. Time is essential for saving heart muscle. Patients who are experiencing symptoms of a heart attack should call 911 immediately.
