Technology and Research
State-of-the-science technology is used to its fullest at the Covenant Center for the Heart. We are already the area's leader in cardiovascular research, with on-going studies in virtually every aspect of cardiac care. The Covenant Center for the Heart is also one of the state's leading diagnostic centers, and it is uniquely positioned to become a leading cardiac research facility on the national health care scene as well.
You gain the life-saving and enhanced-care advantages of the latest breakthroughs first, as well as the benefits of having more treatment options available for your heart care needs.
The Covenant Center for the Heart remains committed to bringing heart-healthy education such as healthy cooking presentations, diabetic education programs, and on-going cardiac rehab information to the community.
