Women's Heart Services
More women die from heart attacks than from breast cancer. What's even more surprising is that more women die from heart disease than all cancers combined.
The Alegent Creighton Health Heart & Vascular Institute addresses the unique manifestations of heart disease in women. Our center offers state-of-the-art diagnosis, care and prevention of heart disease that begins with a complete women's cardiac health evaluation based on your family history and lifestyle.
We evaluate and treat irregular heart beats and chest pain, as well as provide diagnostic cardiac testing. This testing, especially directed towards women, may include stress tests, cardiovascular ultrasounds and EKG.
