See how we're faster than the national average at treating heart attacks.Finding out that you or a loved one has cardiovascular disease can be very frightening. When medical attention becomes necessary, the Cardiovascular Center at CMC-Union is here for you. Our experienced team of board-certified cardiologists and radiologists, highly trained nurses, and registered technologists provide a full range of high-quality diagnostic cardiac and vascular services using the latest technologies. Our interdisciplinary team approach to heart care ensures that our patients get the excellent care they need close to home.

In 2012, CMC-Union earned Disease-Specific Care Certification from The Joint Commission for Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS), a term used for any condition brought on by a sudden, reduced blood flow to the heart. This certification is awarded based on a center's ability to meet critical elements of performance, which are necessary to achieving long-term success in improving outcomes for patients with ACS.
