The Heart and Vascular Center at Rockford Health System, located in the RHPH, Building 2 at 2350 N. Rockton Avenue, offers an innovative approach to heart and vascular care.
Our general cardiologists diagnose and treat a variety of cardiovascular diseases.
Interventional cardiology is a branch of cardiology that specializes in catheter-based treatment of structural heart diseases.
We have the region's only cardiac catheterization laboratory, which is located next to our Level I Trauma Center. Procedures include:
Open heart operating rooms are also nearby for a fast response to patients who are in distress.
The Heart and Vascular Center is staffed with two electrophysiologists who specialize in the electricity of the heart's conduction system.
We offer a pacemaker and implanted cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) clinic, where patients come to have their devices checked after implantation.
Coming soon, we will also offer an atrial fibrillation clinic, where patients can receive innovative and advanced treatment for this common arrhythmia. Our team will also perform atrial fibrillation ablations in the cardiac catheterization laboratory at Rockford Memorial Hospital.
The Heart and Vascular Center has an outpatient intravenous diuretic clinic that delivers safe, fast, and effective relief for patients with symptomatic heart failure.
