- Cardiac Services
More than 58 million Americans have one or more types of cardiovascular disease and many more are at risk for developing it. More than a million suffer a heart attack each year. Another 300,000 will suffer cardiac arrest. Other diseases – including strokes and peripheral vascular disease – impact thousands each year. The common enemy? Clogged blood vessels.
Vascular disease is always a serious medical condition. But when it impacts the heart or the brain, it can be, and often is, life-threatening.
That’s why TriStar Horizon provides a full range of services to help people prevent, treat and recover from heart disease and stroke. From screenings to diagnostic cardiac catheterization, from angioplasty to rehabilitation, TriStar Horizon’s services have earned a reputation for excellence.
