Heart Conditions We Treat

Our cardiovascular experts use the most effective therapies to treat even the most complex heart conditions.

Meet the Team

At Providence, you'll have access to a vast network of dedicated and compassionate providers who offer personalized care by focusing on treatment, prevention and health education.

Your heart is at the center of so much that matters. At the Providence cardiovascular center, healing hearts is our specialty. Our doctors and care teams offer complete cardiovascular services to help keep your heart healthy.

In emergency rooms, catheterization labs, surgical suites and intensive care units, our cardiologists evaluate chest pain, open blocked arteries and fix leaky valves. Providence heart and vascular doctors work across medical specialties to treat arteries, veins and a host of heart problems and related medical conditions that might play a role in your heart’s health such as diabetes or obesity.

If you have chest pains or other heart symptoms, don’t wait to call 911 or be taken to the emergency room. Expert teams will act fast to evaluate and care for you.

For non-emergency evaluation, whether you make an appointment on your own or through a doctor’s referral, our experts will find answers and options. We diagnose mild or advanced symptoms and offer all the services you need.

Diagnostic and cardiovascular care

At Providence, diagnostic cardiology services to identify heart conditions include:

  • Echocardiogram
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Exercise treadmill test (ETT)
  • Imaging studies
  • Nuclear medicine
Surgical services

Surgical leaders at Providence provide all types of care — from interventional or minimally invasive heart and vascular procedures to traditional open surgery for certain complex conditions. Your doctors and care team will talk with you about your unique condition and treatment options.

Interventional procedures

Thanks to smart medical technology and engineering, our doctors can find, examine and treat blocked vessels or injured tissues with great accuracy and efficiency.

Providence heart doctors perform many interventional — or minimally invasive — techniques guided by cameras, special software and finely engineered operating tools. When appropriate, we’ll use these treatment approaches rather than traditional open surgery, which involves more cuts, general anesthesia and a longer recovery time.

While Providence doctors evaluate and treat you for heart and vascular conditions, these and other specialists may care for you:

  • Cardiac rehabilitation specialists
  • Cardiologists
  • ardiovascular technician
  • Dieticians
  • Electrophysiologists
  • Exercise specialists
  • Heart and vascular surgeons
  • Interventional cardiologists
  • Interventional radiologists
  • Nurses
  • Occupational therapists
  • Physical therapists
  • Radiologists
  • Registered nurses
  • Respiratory therapists
  • Thoracic surgeons
  • Vascular surgeons

As part of our commitment to comprehensive patient care, we have the only heart transplant center, the only pediatric heart center and the only adult and teen congenital heart center in the Inland Northwest. We also have the largest robotic thoracic program in the region.

Our team uses minimally invasive procedures in many cases to improve outcomes and reduce recovery times. For example, we were the first hospital in the region with a cardiac surgery robot.

Providence Heart Institute is proud to be deeply involved in the continual advancement of cardiovascular treatment and therapies. Our Spokane doctors were the first to pioneer emergency surgery to repair heart arteries for a patient having a heart attack. This has helped make heart attack treatment around the world less invasive. Our doctors also performed the region’s first heart transplant in 1986.

As our patient, you can take part in one of the Providence network’s many clinical trials. These include FDA-regulated trials to develop new cardiovascular therapies. Providence also participates in national cardiovascular data registries to continually improve outcomes and patient care.

We know that putting patients first leads to the best outcomes. That’s why we don’t just care for your heart – we care for all it beats for. We provide patients with a wide range of support services that extend well beyond traditional treatment. Our offerings include everything from prevention and education to nutrition, pain management and spiritual care.

Because of our experience in subspecialty heart and vascular care, our providers meet regularly as multidisciplinary teams to review the most complex situations. This means you are getting the best treatment without having to visit another doctor or specialist outside the region. In fact, several people from the other side of the state and surrounding states come to Spokane for these specialized treatments.

We understand that the impact of heart disease is greater in some communities. Genetics plays a part, but unequal access to great health care is also a factor. At Providence, we strive to ensure our patients have access to the best heart care. We offer free and low-cost educational and prevention programs to help people transform their overall heart health.

We value, respect and support the racial, ethnic, religious, spiritual, gender and sexual identities of each member of our diverse community. We welcome all patients, regardless of their ability to pay. We aim to treat every patient equally and with dignity – whoever you are, and wherever you are in your journey.
