The first step in treating your heart is easing your mind.
Through the FirstHEART initiative, Huntsville Hospital, The Heart Center and Huntsville Cardiothoracic Surgeons are dedicated to integrating inpatient and outpatient services to improve communication and convenience and to reduce costs for cardiac patients.
FirstHEARTís focus is prevention, recognition, treatment, research and education of cardiovascular disease. FirstHEART is one of only two projects of its kind in Alabama. As a partner with FirstHEART, Huntsville Hospital follows guidelines established by the American College of Cardiology, Society of Thoracic Surgeons, Joint Comission of Accrediation Organization and Medicare, as well as published best practice. A leader in cardiac health, Huntsville Hospital acts as a regional referral center, networking with outlying clinics and hospitals to provide seamless continuity of care for the entire area.
Taking cardiac care to the next level.
FirstHEART brings together the team and technology you can trust with your heart. FirstHEARTís primary goal is to improve the quality and access to heart services for the citizens in north Alabama, northeastern Mississippi and south central Tennessee.
