Excellence at Heart
The American Heart Association estimates that one in three adults in the U.S. is living with some form of cardiovascular disease. Thankfully if heart or vascular disease has touched you or someone you love, Meriter Heart & Vascular offers the region’s most comprehensive, “head-to-toe” cardiovascular care. We’re home to top specialists, groundbreaking technology, lifesaving treatments, innovative research and a specially trained and caring staff — giving you convenient access to everything you need to feel better and live longer.
Meriter Heart & Vascular is built around some of Madison's most respected cardiologists. We have board-certified specialists in all areas of cardiovascular medicine including general cardiology, echocardiography, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, cardiothoracic surgery and a comprehensive vascular program.
Our expertise allows us to offer state-of-the-art treatment. In fact, many of our physicians have been involved in "Madison firsts" in cardiology, including the first cardiac intensive care unit, the first accredited chest pain center, and the first to use cutting-edge treatments for atrial fibrillation, including cryoballoon ablation which permanently cures some arrhythmias.
We also have some of the most highly trained technologists, nurse practitioners and physician assistants around. This combination allows us to offer a full spectrum of cardiovascular services, from prevention up to the most advanced interventions and devices. All of this is offered to our patients in a warm, caring environment.
We are Here When You Need Us
Heart disease is serious business. You should not have to wait weeks to see a cardiac specialist. That is why at Meriter Wisconsin Heart, we offer new patients the opportunity to be evaluated within two days, sooner if a problem is urgent. The same is true for our existing patients who may be experiencing problems or require diagnostic testing.
If you live outside of Madison, we work with your local physician to bring our world-class cardiovascular care close to home in communities throughout south-central Wisconsin.
When Emergencies Occur
We hope it never happens to you, but if a cardiac or vascular emergency occurs we will be there for you in our state-of-the-art Heart & Vascular Hospital. Located on the top two floors of Meriter Hospital, it’s Madison’s only “heart hospital within a hospital”. At a moment’s notice, we are there for patients in the emergency room, in the hospital or for patients to be transferred from area hospitals.
At Meriter Heart & Vascular, we understand that the heart cannot be treated in isolation. That is why our patient care teams use wellness and prevention strategies to care for the whole person. At Meriter Heart & Vascular, we're there for you with every beat of your heart.
