The health and safety of our communities remain top priority as we continue to work tirelessly to minimize the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). We are actively taking measures in doing this by carefully screening each patient for covid symptoms before they enter our facility, having our healthcare workers wear masks, and sanitizing all of our work areas with hospital-grade disinfectant. If you are ill with fever, cough or shortness of breath or have been exposed to a person with suspected or confirmed COVID symptoms, call 855-600-3453 to be connected to the New Mexico Health Department.

Our Approach

The cardiovascular program at CHRISTUS St. Vincent integrates a complete range of diagnostic and treatment services.

Non-invasive testing begins using state-of-the-art echo equipment, EKG and stress testing facilities. When further testing and cardiac catheterization are required, patients utilize our "high tech, high touch" cath lab facilities. Our cath lab is staffed by expert physicians and experienced staff who provide optimum personalized treatment.

An outstanding cardiac rehab department rounds out the program and enables patients to transition from acute care to continued wellness.

The CHRISTUS St. Vincent Heart & Vascular Center is a collaboration between CHRISTUS St. Vincent Regional Medical Center and New Mexico Heart Institute and results in enhanced cardiac and heart services in Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico. We work together to increase the coordination of the transition between inpatient and outpatient settings.
