Caring for the health of your heart
Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death and disability in the United States. Almost 1 million people die from it each year. It causes almost twice as many deaths as cancer.
Yet, deaths from cardiovascular disease are declining. This has led to the huge increases in life expectancy since the 1940s.
In large part, more people are surviving cardiovascular disease because of the kind of new technology and treatments at Saint John Hospital and its affiliate, Providence Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas.
Saint John Hospital is committed to helping you have a healthy heart. Saint John currently offers our patients access to:
- Cardiopulmonary Services - staffed by experienced medical professionals who offer prevention, treatment, management and rehabilitation services to patients with heart and lung disorders.
- Non-Invasive Cardiac Services - designed to gather the sophisticated data necessary to develop a highly accurate diagnosis and treatment plan, including nuclear medicine and cardiac ultrasound.
Saint John and Providence have top-flight medical professionals with specialized expertise to provide our patients with outstanding care that is both high-tech, high-touch and close to home.
