Loyola's Cardiovascular Clinic Marks First Anniversary in Park Ridge

PARK RIDGE, Ill. -- Loyola University Health System on Feb. 4th, 2009 will mark the first anniversary of a cardiovascular clinic that brings Loyola's top-rated heart and vascular doctors to Park Ridge. The Loyola Center for Heart and Vascular Medicine at Park Ridge, 1030 W. Higgins Road, is located just off the Cumberland exit of the Kennedy Expressway. Loyola physicians offer a full range of outpatient heart and vascular treatments and diagnostic services such as nuclear cardiac imaging, non-invasive cardiac imaging and peripheral vascular testing. Clinical specialties offered at the Park Ridge center include general cardiology, interventional cardiology, heart failure, electrophysiology and peripheral vascular surgery. Complementing these specialties are Loyola's oncology and internal medicine physicians. Diagnostic services include echocardiograms, EKGs, stress testing, event monitoring, nuclear cardiac imaging, vascular studies and general lab services. Such diagnostic tests can spot problems at earlier stages, when they are more easily treated. Patients also will have access to Loyola researchers who are conducting clinical trials of new drugs and heart devices. Loyola is a nationally recognized center of excellence for heart and vascular care. U.S. News and World Report consistently ranks Loyola's heart program as one of the best in the country. Loyola also is the only Illinois hospital to be named to the 2008 Thomson Reuters list of the nation's top teaching hospitals with cardiovascular programs.
