Bozeman Deaconess Heart Center Offers Full Range of Cardiovascular Care

February 17, 2011

If you or someone you love suffers from heart or vascular disease, Bozeman Deaconess Heart Center is here to help. We have board-certified physicians, state-of-the-art technology and a full range of services to help you live a longer, healthier life.

Diagnosing ailments of the heart and circulatory system is more precise and accurate than ever before thanks to continuing developments and improvements in imaging technology. Cardiovascular specialists now have the ability to see and study the heart and blood vessels in amazing detail with several minimally invasive procedures.

According to Jennifer Kack, Bozeman Deaconess Heart Center manager, “It’s fitting that during Heart Month, Cardiology Consultants joined the Bozeman Deaconess Health Group; because of this partnership, we’ve been able to consolidate all our cardiovascular services under the banner of the Bozeman Deaconess Heart Center.”

Staying in Bozeman for heart attack care does not compromise patient outcome, in fact, it may improve outcomes. And, heart attack care in a rural non on-site surgery facility like Bozeman Deaconess results in significant cost savings compared to being flown to a nearby on-site surgery facility. That’s because quick response to heart attack care is paramount, not necessarily the size of the facility the victim presents to. Patients who present to Bozeman Deaconess with acute heart attacks have outcomes that surpass national survival rates for this medical emergency.

It’s standard of care for people who have any type of heart event or heart mending procedure to participate in cardiac rehabilitation. (Heart events include heart attacks and congestive heart failure and heart mending procedures such as bypass surgery, angioplasty, stent and valve surgeries.) Bozeman Deaconess Cardiac Rehabilitation is multi-disciplinary, American Association of Cardiovascular Pulmonary Rehabilitation accredited program that offers medically supervised programs for people with diagnosed illness, heart or breathing conditions along with adults who have lifestyle risk factors like obesity, high blood pressure or sedentary lifestyles.

Blair Erb, MD, Bozeman Deaconess Cardiology Consultants, is medical director of the department. The rehab team, working closely with primary care physicians, tailors a program for each person. Everyone’s rehabilitation program involves a combination of education, exercise and intensive cardiovascular risk reduction.
