Keeping the heart from failure
Hearts fail when the heart muscle can't pump enough blood through the heart to meet the body’s needs for blood and oxygen. To compensate, oftentimes, the heart enlarges, develops more muscle mass and pumps faster. The body also tries to make up for failures by narrowing blood vessels to keep blood pressure up. It diverts blood away from less important tissues and organs to maintain flow to the heart and brain.
We offer complete, comprehensive heart and vascular care at Goshen Heart & Vascular Center. Our board certified surgeons, cardiologists, neurologists and radiologists work together in one place to provide innovative, care specifically for you.
Seconds count with heart attacks
Our door-to-balloon times are twice as fast as the national average. That means we are prepared to treat a heart attack patient quickly and safely once the patient enters our Emergency Department.
We also have sophisticated communication systems in local ambulance units. Our high-tech Remote Stemi Activation System streamlines patient information to all devices so our hospital clinicians can better prepare for a patient’s arrival and treatment needs. The system saves both lives and serious damage to heart muscle.
