From diagnosis and treatment through rehabilitation
Heart disease claims more lives than any other illness. About every 29 seconds someone has a heart attack, and about every minute someone will die. This year an estimated 1,100,000 Americans will have a heart attack and about one third of these will die. For those suffering a heart attack, seconds literally do count, so having quality cardiac services close to home can make a life-or-death difference.
At Kadlec Regional Medical Center, we combat cardiovascular disease with skilled care and the latest technology. Our dedicated, experienced staff combines excellence with compassion for patients. We are committed to providing the highest quality medical care, while meeting the needs of patients and their families before, during and after surgery.
