Heart care at Iredell
At Iredell, we treat the whole person because heart disease affects your whole life.
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.
