Heart & Vascular Care
Exceptional Heart Care, Close to Home
The Allegiance Heart and Vascular Center offers a complete range of heart services, from prevention education through cardiac rehabilitation. In 2008, Allegiance Health brought open-heart surgery to the Jackson area for the first time and began offering non-emergency cardiac interventions, including angioplasty and stent placement. These developments made it unnecessary for patients to travel out of town for heart care.
Additionally, the care teams at Allegiance Vascular Health and the Diagnostic Vascular Laboratory detect and prevent damage from blocked carotid arteries and abdominal aneurisms.
Our cardiovascular physicians, nurses and staff have dedicated their careers to cardiac patients. We have the experience, passion and technology to provide you with exceptional care in an environment that promotes healing.
