Heart Disease

These factors put you at greater risk for developing heart disease:
  • Smoking
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • A family history of atherosclerosis or heart disease
  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes

Together, you and your doctor can decide what steps you need to take to win the fight against heart disease.

In the event you need treatment, St. Mary's of Michigan 
-- together with our affiliate Michigan Cardiovascular Institute -- offer the finest and most complete cardiac facilities in the area, including cath labs, electrophysiology labs, comprehensive non-invasive diagnostic cardiology, and operating room suites dedicated to cardiac surgery.
 
If you don't have a physician, call 1-800-STMARYS.

Stroke

St. Mary's of Michigan is certified as a Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. 

We were the first in northeast Michigan to create a stroke program - nearly 50 years ago. With this experience comes expertise in treating the complexities of stroke. Our comprehensive care begins in the Emergency Department where advanced neurological diagnostic tools assist in the accurate detection of stroke. 

For patients who are candidates for aggressive therapy aimed at reversing the damage caused by stroke, treatment is quick and precise because brain cells deprived of oxygen and glucose die quickly. Minutes count because the time period to administer life-saving, clot-busting drugs or other interventions is short.

Following initial treatment, patients may spend time in our dedicated neurological intensive care unit. Nurses and technicians are specifically trained in neurological care and have devoted their careers to the field.
