The Ephraim McDowell Heart & Vascular Institute continues the tradition of combining patient-centered care with the best doctors and advanced medical technology. With five outstanding physicians and their staffs, the Ephraim McDowell Heart & Vascular Institute provides some of the most sophisticated cardiac and arterial care available in the commonwealth of Kentucky.

Our cardiologists have led the state in pioneering treatments for Peripheral Artery Disease, literally saving both lives and limbs. The board-certified interventional cardiologists have access to one of the most advanced cardiac catheterization facilities in Kentucky, at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center. In addition, the hospital’s Vascular Laboratory and Echocardiography Laboratory are nationally accredited.

At the Ephraim McDowell Heart & Vascular Institute, patients are provided a full range of cardiac care services for diagnosing and treating diseases of the heart and circulatory system as well as the body’s entire vascular system. In addition, Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center is an accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI, meaning we meet or exceed benchmarks for rapidly diagnosing and treating patients who arrive with symptoms of a heart attack, thus reducing deaths and major adverse events.
