Cardiology is a medical specialty focused on disorders of the heart; cardiologists are physicians who specialize in cardiology.
According the American Heart Association, nearly half of all U.S. adults have some type of cardiovascular disease. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in our state and our country. That’s why Saint Mary’s is here for you, and here for your heart.
