We offer highly advanced heart and vascular care, including the least invasive treatments that offer a faster recovery and minimize complications and risks.

Minimally Invasive Cardiology Care

The Florence Wormald Heart & Vascular Institute at St. Elizabeth provides a wide range of treatments and specialized care to heal heart and vascular disease. As a heart care leader in Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati, you can count on our expertise.

Many types of cardiovascular disease can be treated using minimally invasive cardiac catheterization. The most common procedure is cardiac angioplasty, which is used to open blocked arteries that supply blood to the heart. These procedures offer a relatively quick recovery and a lower risk of complications — and require only a brief hospital stay.

Exceptional Care in the Hospital

If you require hospitalization, you can count on expert care from a highly specialized team. Our cardiologists, cardiac nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, imaging specialists and other care team members work together to ensure you receive the very best care.

Our heart and vascular team delivers all levels of cardiology care, from emergency procedures for heart attack to the most advanced therapy in our Cardiac Intensive Care Unit.

You can count on us for comprehensive care, delivered by compassionate, dedicated heart and vascular specialists.
