Heart disease remains a leading threat to the health of Americans. That’s why it’s so important to have leaders in heart care so close to home, 24/7, whenever you need it. Our experienced heart team is committed to delivering expert care for your heart. We offer a broad spectrum of cardiac services and believe in treating the whole person, not just the disease. At Davis Hospital, you can expect a personalized, coordinated approach and the caring attention you deserve – all aimed toward achieving great results.
We offer a broad array of heart-related services, all delivered with compassion and exceptional expertise:
Chest Pain Protocols
Is it heartburn – or a heart attack? A fast answer to that question could save your life. If you feel chest pain, our emergency department provides prompt care. Special protocols and testing help our team quickly diagnose whether a patient is experiencing a heart attack.
Cardiac catheterization helps doctors evaluate how well the heart is functioning and whether there are blockages in the arteries. During the procedure, physicians insert a very thin flexible tube into a major vein and navigate it to the arteries around the heart. Using advanced imaging technology, doctors can see whether there is plaque build-up in the heart’s vessels. If blockages exist, surgeons use treatments such as angioplasty or stent placements to restore better blood flow. Since cardiac catheterization is a minimally invasive procedure, most patients feel better within hours and some can go home the same day.
Dr. Stephanie Olsen began practicing at Davis Hospital in November of 1994. Two months later, Davis opened their first cardiac cath lab.
“Davis and IASIS Healthcare have worked very hard to keep up with the newer technologies for treatment of cardiac diseases. The national guidelines say that we need to open the artery causing the heart attack within 90 minutes, and we are well ahead of the national average on doing so. I’m Dr. Stephanie Olsen, and Davis is MY hospital.”
Our hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that can produce clear, detailed views of the human heart and help doctors detect heart disease with pinpoint accuracy. Our advanced diagnostic testing capabilities include:
- 64-slice CT scanner
- MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
- Nuclear medicine cameras
- Transesophageal echo
- Stress testing
- Holter and event monitoring
Treatment for Arrhythmia
We provide a variety of services for patients with irregular heartbeats, including implantation and management of pacemakers, Holter and event monitor services, and afibablation, which is a minimally invasive treatment option that relies on radio frequencies to correct atrial fibrillation.
Peripheral artery disease – typically characterized by arterial blockages in the legs – is one of the most prevalent and dangerous diseases in the United States. However, many individuals are not aware of PAD or the disease’s link to heart attack and stroke. The symptoms of PAD are oftentimes mistaken as joint pain, “harmless” poor circulation, and “just getting older.” The truth is, PAD is a silent and deadly killer that affects 1 in 20 Americans over the age of 50.
