The Ephraim McDowell Heart & Vascular Institute combines patient-centered care with the best doctors and advanced medical technology. We have five outstanding physicians on our staff. Advanced practice providers support them. As a result, we provide some of the best cardiac and arterial care available in Kentucky.

We are proud to be a member of the UK Gill Heart & Vascular Institute Affiliate Network. Because of this affiliation, we have access to cardiovascular-specific education and training programs for our physicians, nurses and staff. As a result, our providers are up-to-date with the most current resources and information. It allows us to provide the right care in the right place at the right time. Patients benefit by having access to programs and services that may not be available right here in our local community.

Our cardiac care services

Our cardiologists have led the state in first of its kind treatments for Peripheral Artery Disease. As a result, we save patients’ lives and limbs. The Cardiac Cath Lab at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center is one of the most advanced in Kentucky. In addition, the hospital’s Vascular Lab and Echocardiography Lab are nationally accredited. Because of these, patients receive the best care close to home.

We provide patients with a full range of cardiac care services. Our providers diagnose and treat most diseases of the heart and circulatory system. Our vascular specialists also diagnose and treat diseases of the vascular system. In addition, Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center is an accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI. This means we meet or exceed benchmarks to rapidly diagnose and treat patients who arrive with symptoms of a heart attack. As a result, deaths and major adverse events are reduced.
