Cardiology Services in Worcester, MA
While you can access cardiac services at all our hospitals, our specialty programs below are available at the Medical Center. No matter where you go, you will receive the most comprehensive, personalized care for your heart condition. Our specialty programs include:
- Anticoagulation Center: Helps monitor and manage medications taken to prevent blood clots. Services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and include a "bridging therapy" program, and home coagulation monitoring and management programs. Our anticoagulation team was recognized nationally by the Anticoagulation Forum/Anticoagulation Centers of Excellence for work in their patient self-testing program.
- Hypertension Clinic: Supports patients suffering from complicated hypertension (high blood pressure). Treatment usually involves changes in lifestyle, and, if necessary, drug therapy.
- Lipids Clinic: Treats cholesterol problems, which can contribute to the development and progression of hardening of the arteries. Cholesterol management can decrease incidence of stroke, heart attack, hospitalization, disability and death.
- Preventive Cardiology Program: Offers evaluation and treatment to lower your current or future risks for heart disease. Studies show managing risk factors even for those who have heart disease can slow its progress. Our program also offers treatment of cardiovascular diseases resulting from diabetes.
- Pulmonary Hypertension Program: Evaluates and treats patients for high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs, which can lead to heart failure and even death.
- Second Opinion Clinic: For heart and vascular patients who already have received a first diagnosis. You may find there is a treatment option that is more convenient for you, less invasive and possibly more effective than the one you were initially given.
- Women's Heart Health Program: Provides cardiac care designed specifically for women. This dedicated clinic focuses on all aspects of cardiology, from preventive care to the treatment of complex conditions.
