Heart Health Starts at Presence

  • Top-ranked hospitals: Our hospitals consistently rank among U.S. News & World Report’s best in the nation. We have also received several Blue Distinction Center for Cardiac Care designations from BlueCross BlueShield for high-quality care that is more cost-effective with fewer complications and readmissions.

  • Leaders in cardiovascular care: Our renowned cardiovascular team includes heart surgeons from Cardiac Surgery Associates, the largest cardiac surgeon group in the United States, and leaders in vein and vascular procedures from the Christie Clinic Vein & Vascular Center.

  • Cutting-edge technologies and treatments: We offer the first CT scanner in the world that can adapt to every patient, no matter their size. Many Presence Health hospitals were the first to bring cutting-edge surgical procedures to the areas they serve, including open-heart surgery and innovative treatments for peripheral vascular disease (PAD).

  • Proven track record of outstanding outcomes: Our hospitals have earned 3-star ratings, the highest possible, in heart bypass surgery, from The Society for Thoracic Surgeons (STS) and safety scores ranked among the highest in the area by Consumer Reports. Our readmission rates are also among the lowest in Illinois.

  • Groundbreaking clinical trials: Many of our heart and vascular specialists participate in innovative research programs, giving you access to promising new procedures and medications. Find an open clinical trial now.

  • Next-generation labs and operating suites: We have the Fox River Valley’s first and only hybrid cardiac catheterization lab, which combines the capabilities of a cath lab with a state-of-the-art surgical suite to ensure the best care when every second counts.

  • One of the most active programs in Illinois: We have one of the largest heart surgery programs in the state and have performed more than 8,400 open-heart surgeries. That’s in addition to thousands of cardiac catheterization procedures and arrhythmia treatments.

  • Record-setting emergency heart care: All our emergency departments are nationally accredited Chest Pain Centers, placing us among just 6 percent of all hospitals nationwide with that prestigious designation. Our superior heart attack outcomes are due in part to our rapid door-to-balloon times – the time between the patient’s arrival at our Emergency Department and our opening the blocked artery. This is how we save more heart muscle, more lives. Learn more about our heart attack care.

  • LVAD and heart transplant care: Our Heart Failure Clinic at Presence Saint Joseph Hospital – Elgin is the first Shared Care site in Illinois, offering heart failure services, including left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implants and heart transplants.
