Heart Institute

Deciding where to go for quality heart care can be a real test. While many cardiac 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 Institute in Tupelo gives you access to nationally recognized physicians whenever you need them, day or night.


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


Experience leads to expertise. More patients and procedures add up to fewer complications and better outcomes. The NMMC Heart Institute is one of the most experienced programs in the region, performing more than 10,000 cardiology procedures and 1,000 heart and lung surgeries each year.


Since 1981, the NMMC Heart Institute has pioneered many 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.
