Cardiac Care at CMH

The CMH Heart Institute Clinic and CMH Cath Lab include two board-certified cardiologists, John F. Best, M.D., FACP, FACC, FSCAI, and Joseph Moore, M.D., and nurse practitioners, Kyla Inman, NP-C and  Jane Smith, NP-C. The physicians and cardiac team staff specialize in invasive/interventional cardiology, diagnostic angiography, coronary angioplasty and stenting, pacemaker implantation, echo cardiography, inferior vena cava filter placement, pericardiocentesis, electrical cardioversion, stress testing and more.

Cardiovascular services at CMH includes an accredited  Level II  STEMI program with 24/7 cardiology availability. STEMI, which stands for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, is a heart attack in which a blocked coronary artery prevents blood from getting to the heart muscle. CMH was honored with the Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Receiving Center Gold Quality Achievement Award and the Mission: Lifeline® NSTEMI Bronze Quality Achievement Award for demonstrating excellent patient outcomes and implementing specific quality improvement measures outlined by the American Heart Association for the treatment of patients who suffer heart attacks in 2017.

The CMH cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation program is nationally recognized and is designed to help heart and lung patients recover quickly from a heart-related surgery, a heart attack or diagnosis of heart or pulmonary disease. It is certified by the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). The team of physicians, registered nurses, registered respiratory therapists, and dietitians work with patients, their families and their physicians to structure a lifestyle plan tailored to meet their specific needs.

The cardio-pulmonary rehabilitation program is in a state-of-the-art rehabilitation facility within the walls of the hospital, but is also easily accessible from outside. CMH offers recumbent and stationary ellipticals and bicycles, recumbent cross trainers, treadmills, rowing machines, weight stations, stationary hand cycles, and an indoor walking track.
