Cardiology Services

Vail Health's Cardiovascular Center specializes in heart and vascular health, providing comprehensive diagnostic testing and medical management of coronary disease, hypertension, lipid disorders, arrhythmia, valvular heart disease, cardiomyopathies and congestive heart failure. Additional services include pacemaker implantation, pre-operative evaluation and anticoagulation services, as well as cardiac rehabilitation and comprehensive screening physicals for young athletes.

Choose the cardiology service that is right for you: Vail Health's patients range from healthy adults seeking preventative cardiac care to those with significant cardiac illnesses. Our board certified cardiologists treat cardiac disease with a comprehensive approach that begins with diagnostics and assessments and can include treatments such as blood thinners, electrophysiology (which includes the advanced care for arrhythmias and the use of pacemakers and defibrillators) and/or rehabilitative measures.

While no referral is necessary to book a cardiology appointment, patients are encouraged to contact their insurance company to determine whether a referral is required for optimal insurance coverage. Call (970) 476-1110 for information or to schedule an appointment.

What Is Peripheral Vascular Disease?

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is very common, even in people with healthy, active lifestyles who do not have a family history of heart disease. Dr. Kate Schuetze, cardiologist at Vail Health, speaks with Chelsea Dentler about the common symptoms in men and women of PVD, and how you can schedule an appointment to get quickly screened for PVD. Patients with PVD left undetected or untreated have an increased risk of heart attacks.
