Cardiovascular Care

The heart care center to keep you in tip-top condition

We all know that keeping your heart healthy is key to a long, healthy life. At Sparrow — which Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan has designated a Cardiac Center of Excellence — you’ll receive the top-notch care that your heart deserves. 

The Sparrow Heart and Vascular program includes the Sparrow Heart and Vascular Center, a 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility with dedicated inpatient units exclusively focused on various levels and types of cardiac care, and the Sparrow Thoracic Cardiovascular Institute, which provides outpatient heart and vascular services across mid-Michigan and Sparrow Cardiovascular Thoracic Surgery for patients needing open heart, vascular and thoracic surgeries, 

From cardiac testing, to noninvasive heart treatment procedures, to open heart surgery, to cardiac rehabilitation, Sparrow is your best option for cardiovascular care in Mid-Michigan.

Sparrow’s expert cardiologists deliver leading-edge care

At Sparrow, our expert heart and vascular center physicians actively participate in clinical trials and stay up-to-date with the latest research in the field. Combined with the most advanced technology in mid-Michigan, their expertise gives our cardiovascular care center an edge. 

For patients like you, that means access to the best treatment options available. 

For example, the structural heart program at Sparrow, in which doctors strive to identify minimally invasive solutions for structural heart diseases, such as left atrial appendage devices, mitral valve and the TAVR, helps many patients avoid heart surgery. 

Sparrow is the only health system in mid-Michigan (and one of just a few nationwide) to perform Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), a minimally invasive procedure offering fresh hope to high-risk patients who can’t undergo traditional open heartvalve surgery. 

We’re also an experienced the only heart program in mid-Michigan with the capabilities to conduct advanced ablation to treat atrial fibrillation.
