Heart & Vascular Institute

Deciding where to go for quality heart and vascular care can be a real test. While many programs look the same, only a close examination will reveal the best.

 

 

NMMC is a Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Blue Distinction Center of Excellence for Cardiac Care. This designation recognizes hospitals and physicians that demonstrate high levels of performance in delivering quality specialty care to their patients safely, efficiently and in a cost-effective manner. Centers of Excellence are chosen based on national criteria around quality, cost and total value.

 

When deciding where to go, consider:

 

Physician Availability

 

The North Mississippi Medical Center Heart & Vascular Institute in Tupelo gives you access to nationally recognized physicians whenever you need them, day or night.

 

Support

 

Our patients benefit from a comprehensive team that includes not only top cardiologists, cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons but also nurses, technicians, therapists and others. Highly-skilled physician specialists such as vascular surgeons, radiologists, pulmonologists and nephrologists provide additional support when needed.

Experience

Experience leads to expertise. More patients and procedures add up to fewer complications and better outcomes. NMMC has one of the most experienced programs in the region.

Technology

Since 1981, NMMC has pioneered many cardiac diagnostic and treatment technologies. NMMC was the first in the state to provide advanced cardiac mapping capabilities and one of the first in the nation to offer cardiac resynchronization therapy for heart failure.

The NMMC Heart Institute's name changed to the Heart & Vascular Institute in 2016 to better reflect its scope of services in cardiac and vascular care.
