Get to the Heart of the Matter

You're all heart. And your spirit shines through in everything you do. At AdventHealth, formerly Metroplex Health System, we care for both your heart and your spirit. We offer advanced imaging technologies and one of the nation's newest cardiac catheterization labs. In fact, we're the only cardiovascular center in central Texas to have received the Chest Pain Center with Primary PCI and Resuscitation accreditation by the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care (SCPC). That means you can count on us for advanced Heart and Vascular Care that meets the highest standards.

Our innovative treatments for heart problems are designed to get you back to living the life you love quickly, and with as little pain as possible. And our whole-person approach to your heart health emphasizes compassionate care that treats your condition while providing care for your emotional and spiritual health as well. With us, caring wholeheartedly isn't a motto. It's a reality.
