Heart disease is the number one cause of death among Americans — so when it comes to cardiac care, you need both quality and expertise. Turn to Broward Health, a leader in cardiovascular care. Our healthcare system has been distinguished as one of the nation’s top centers for cardiovascular treatment and provides comprehensive clinical, surgical and rehabilitative care.
Conditions We Treat:
- Aortic Stenosis
- Atrial Septal Defect (ASD)
- Atrial Fibrillation
- Atrial Flutter
- Chest pain
- Coronary artery disease
- Congestive Heart Failure
- Heart Attack
- Mitral Valve Disease
- Myocardial infarctions
- Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO)
- Reducing risk of stroke with left atrial appendage closure devices
- Supraventricular Tachycardia
- Ventricular Tachycardia
We offer a wide range of tests and procedures to diagnose and treat cardiac and vascular conditions, providing an individualized approach to identifying cardiac risk factors while offering a quick assessment of symptoms. Using sophisticated cardiac diagnostic equipment, our team quickly and efficiently determines a personalized plan of care. Broward Health was the first healthcare system in Broward County to offer patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF) an alternative to long-term warfarin medication with the newly approved WATCHMAN Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) Implant.
Areas of specialty include:
Cardiac catheterization is a minimally invasive procedure designed to provide detailed and accurate information in cardiac diagnostic testing. The procedure is used to determine if there is any blockage of the coronary arteries, assess heart valve function, and measure and record pressures in various heart chambers. During the procedure, a cardiologist injects a contrast dye through the catheter to make the arteries visible on the x-ray and may show if there are any blockages. After the procedure, the cardiologist will review the results of the tests along with the patients’ medical history to determine the best plan of care.
Our EKG Department is fully-equipped to perform 12 lead electrocardiograms (EKG). This recording of your heart’s electrical activity can provide your physician with information to aid in the diagnosis of a heart attack. Another test provided by the EKG Department is the holter monitor test. This test is a continuous recording of your heart rate and rhythm for 24 hours. The recording is scanned by skilled EKG technicians and then read by a board-certified cardiologist.
Broward Health Heart Valve Center
The Broward Health Heart Valve Center streamlines the diagnostic and treatment process for patients and referring physicians. The Center is led by national experts in diagnostic cardiac imaging, interventional cardiology, and cardiac surgery. More than five million Americans have heart valve disease, and many do not have any symptoms. Even with no outward signs of problems, valve disease can cause heart damage. Left untreated, it can lead to heart failure and other complications, including death.

The Latest Technology
Broward Health offers patient-friendly imaging by The SOMATOM® Definition Flash, one of the fastest computed tomography (or CT) scanners available today.
For most adults, it can image the entire chest in less than a second and it can scan the whole body in less than 5 seconds. With such fast imaging times, Broward Health can generally perform these studies using less radiation than conventional CT scanners – meaning a safer imaging procedure.
