The International Heart Institute (IHI) provides the full spectrum of cardiac care, including open-heart surgery, vascular surgery, interventional and electrophysiology and programs for congestive heart failure and heart health.

As a member of the Providence Heart Institute, the International Heart Institute of Montana brings together an expert team of cardiologists, heart surgeons, nurses and others to perform advanced cardiac procedures and search for new and improved ways to treat heart disease.  

Founded in 1995, we have clinics throughout Western Montana, including Missoula, Hamilton and Butte and are staffed by physicians and other care providers from Providence St. Patrick Hospital and the University of Montana. Our physicians travel to other communities to help maintain heart health across the region. 

Our staff understands that families and loved ones have unique needs and concerns and are an important part of the healing process. We make sure your questions are answered and your family’s needs are met during outpatient care. We will communicate promptly with your personal physician.

In partnership with Providence St. Patrick Hospital and Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, we are pleased to sponsor events such as support groups, health fairs and educational seminars. These events are open to the entire community. Check out our events listing and calendar to learn more.
  • Education

    The International Heart Institute of Montana provides training and education to cardiologists from around the world at the annual Rocky Mountain Valve Symposium. Each year, world-class heart surgeons and cardiologists debate new treatment plans, showcase new techniques and are trained on the latest life-saving procedures to benefit cardiac patients across the globe.

    Each year, IHI is also pleased to coordinate the Heart Expo, a community-wide educational event that attracts over 1,000 attendees from throughout Montana, Idaho and beyond. The Heart Expo features lectures from IHI doctors and care providers on the latest advances in treating heart disease, educational displays, demonstrations, information booths and low-cost blood screenings.

  • Research

    We conduct clinical research at Missoula’s International Heart Institute. The purpose of all clinical trials is the same: to determine whether a new approach is more effective than current ones in the prevention, early detection or treatment of disease. 

    Today’s standards of care were yesterday’s clinical trial. Advances in medicine and science result from new ideas developed through research. Our doctors work with researchers to offer new cardiac treatments to patients. Our researchers and cardiologists have created an atmosphere of intellectual curiosity and discovery to advance cardiac care.  

By being recognized as part of the Providence Heart Institute, the International Heart Institute is able to share expertise with a seamless network of cardiac and vascular providers across seven states.

With specialty training and cohesive heart care services, our local providers are able to share their clinical knowledge with providers and patients in service areas outside our own footprint, allowing us to live up to our Mission of providing care to all. In turn, our team is able to access the larger Providence network to continue to advance cardiac research, clinical trials and breakthrough procedures.

This collaboration gives Providence patients the highest level of care possible, partnered with unmatched compassion. Because when it comes to matters of the heart, you deserve nothing less than world-class health care.

The International Heart Institute is consistently recognized with prestigious award rankings from industry experts. Most recently named as one of Watson Health’s 50 Top Cardiovascular Hospitals, IHI has also been recognized by U.S. News & World Report and the American Heart Association.
