Cardiac Services at McLaren Port Huron

McLaren Port Huron has long been the region’s best hospital for comprehensive heart care. Our patients receive individualized care from an integrated, experienced heart team – cardiothoracic surgeons, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists and specially trained clinical staff. McLaren Port Huron offers the most advanced heart diagnostic and treatment options, including minimally invasive procedures for heart valve disease, congenital heart conditions, aortic aneurysm and heart rhythm disorders like atrial fibrillation.

In addition, McLaren Port Huron now provides a minimally invasive procedure for critically ill heart patients whose heart may be too weak to undergo traditional angioplasty or heart surgery. The procedure is known as a Protected Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) with Impella, the world’s smallest heart pump, and can serve as a viable option. A relatively new, but widely accepted procedure, PCI uses Impella to temporarily assist the heart’s pumping function. Placed through the femoral artery, the Impella heart pump helps ensure blood flow is maintained to critical organs such as the brain and kidneys during a PCI procedure. Impella gives the heart muscle a rest. It reduces the heart’s workload for the procedure’s duration and prevents overstress while the coronary artery blockages are relieved.

Patient Stories

'Life is good’ for runner saved after heart attack" In January 2018, I ran the 5K that I wasn’t able to finish two years ago. The what ifs tried to work their way back in, but I wouldn’t let them stay. I finished the race and can say again “life is good.”
