Cardiac Care at North Okaloosa Medical Center focuses on the functions and disorders of the heart and its connected circulatory system. According to the American Heart Association, 84 million people in the U.S. suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease, affecting blood flow throughout the body. Cardiovascular disease can lead to heart attacks, strokes or other serious complications.
At the Heart and Vascular Center, we believe that a healthy lifestyle is the best way to prevent cardiovascular disease. Our program was designed to not only keep your heart healthy but also offer diagnostic medicine, preventative services and rehab before, during and after a cardiac event. Under the medical direction of a board-certified cardiologist, trained nurses and technologists work together to help patients and their families feel comfortable, safe and well taken care of.
For patients who arrive through the ER, physicians and registered nurses certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support are prepared to treat your symptoms, 24/7. For inpatients, both the Intensive Care Unit and the Progressive Care Unit are equipped to handle cardiac events, with a central monitoring system that provides constant watch over your heart rhythm.
You can find the Heart and Vascular Center on the first floor of the medical center.
