Proactive in the fight against cardiovascular disease
Cardiovascular disease is America's number one killer. But in many
cases, it can be diagnosed and treated before symptoms occur. Iredell
is proactive in the fight against cardiovascular disease by offering health
screenings and programs throughout the year.
Our mission is to return patients to a full and productive life
When heart disease strikes, our mission is to restore heart function and
return our patients to a full and productive life. When a cardiac crisis
arises, we have cardiac interventionalists, who act quickly to treat patients
with stents and balloons during the onset of a heart attack. Iredell Health
System was the first in the county to provide this life-saving technology.
Effective treatment options
We use the most sophisticated technology available that detects early
signs of heart disease, thus preventing heart attacks and strokes. Our
cardiac imaging technology is so sophisticated that physicians can actually
watch your heart function and detect the plaque that may be clogging arteries
before symptoms occur. This allows us to diagnose cardiovascular disease
quickly so that we can provide effective treatment options.
