Cardiology

We understand that heart health is very important. That's why, for over 35 years, we have been the region’s most advanced and comprehensive provider for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. The Heart and Vascular Institute at Covenant provides services, ranging from routine diagnostic testing through complex interventional and surgical procedures. The Institute provides cardiovascular specialists with advanced, state-of-the-art technology to perform clinical procedures in the most effective and safe method possible.
