Cardiac Care

Cardiac Care

Heart disease is the leading cause of death and a major cause of disability in the United States. At Lake Huron Medical Center, we provide compassionate, high-quality cardiac care delivered by knowledgeable, experienced cardiac professionals. Our cardiac care specialists offer state-of-the-art care, from diagnosis and emergency intervention to the latest treatments, preventative education and rehabilitation, because minutes always matter.

Diagnostic Testing

Electrocardiograms (EKG), multigated acquistion scans (MUGA), echo-cardiograms and stress tests are performed at Lake Huron Medical Center's Main Campus (Port Huron) and North Campus (Fort Gratiot). Cardiac catheterizations are performed at Lake Huron Medical Center.

Electrophysiology

Cardiac Electrophysiology is the diagnosis and treatment of patients with electrical or rhythm disorders of the heart. The electrophysiology program specializes in the management of cardiac arrhythmias and arrhythmia-related problems.

Open Heart Surgery

Lake Huron Medical Center offers access to open heart surgical procedures including Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) surgery, Minimally Invasive CABG, and Valve surgery.

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Lake Huron Medical Center offers the only out-patient cardiac rehabilitation program in the Blue Water Area. Cardiac Rehabilitation focuses on improving your quality of life after a heart disease diagnosis or cardiac event. Through lifestyle changes such as improved physical fitness, nutrition and education, our compassionate, highly-qualified team of nurses and exercise physiologists work with patients to design a individually tailored program to aid in recovery from heart surgery, cardiac procedures or chronic heart conditions. Planned rehabilitation assists patients after heart attacks, open heart surgery, coronary angioplasty and valve replacement.

Cardiac Rehabilitation is offered at Lake Huron Medical Center's North Campus at 4190 24th Avenue, Fort Gratiot.

HeartLink

This cardiac education and support group is available for individuals and their family members. HeartLink offers continual information, education and support on cardiac disease. HeartLink meets the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at Lake Huron Medical Center.

Cardiac Scoring

Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death among American adults. Approximately 50 percent of individuals often exhibit no symptoms and feel healthy just prior to a heart attack. To help you understand your risk for heart attack, Lake Huron Medical Center offers Cardiac Scoring. Cardiac Scoring accurately measures the amount of calcified plaque in the arteries - providing you with the information necessary to develop a preventative care plan with your physician.

Lake Huron Medical Center offers access to Cardiac Scoring Services through local radiologists. This fee-for-service program utilizes advanced diagnostic capabilities to provide a noninvasive method to evaluate the potential for cardiac diseases, especially for those at high-risk.

Community Outreach

Education, presentations and screenings on a variety of cardiac health related topics and risk factors are available regionally through a dedicated community outreach coordinator.
