Cardiac Services

What separates an exceptional heart hospital from merely a good one? Outstanding facilities? Cutting edge technology? A highly experienced clinical heart team? The answer is all of the above. All of these qualities are vital to exceptional cardiac care. At The Heart Hospital at Providence, you can count on renowned facilities, the very latest technology, and a superior team of heart professionals. But, that's just the beginning of the Providence story. Since Providence Hospital first opened its doors in 1905, Central Texans have turned to us for a level of compassion and caring they can believe in. Generations of patients have entrusted their health to Providence and that's why we founded The Heart Hospital at Providence, "a hospital within a hospital," more than 30 years ago.

Today, Central Texans refer to Providence as simply "THE Heart Hospital." We're proud of this distinction and proud to say we've earned it with a history of firsts in heart health care including an award-winning, experienced team of professionals, a proven commitment to superior technology, and national recognition for excellence.

On March 30, 2007, Physicians, Providence employees, city and county officials and a large number of friends of Providence gathered together to dedicate the new F.M. and Gloria Young Tower. A dedication which came just some 18 months after ground was broken.

The 5 Story Tower (The Heart Hospital at Providence - F.M. & Gloria Young Tower) includes:

  • New 30 Bed General Cardiac Nursing Unit
  • Increase in intensive Care Unit Beds from 16 to 20
  • Addition of a new 10 bed Acuity Adaptable unit
  • New Congestive Heart Failure Clinic
  • New Cardio-Pulmonary Rehab Clinic
  • New Classrooms for Education
  • 2 Shelled Floors for Future Expansion

The F.M. & Gloria Young Tower, home to The Heart Hospital at Providence was financed entirely with hospital reserves and philanthropic gifts. The new 5-story addition was named in honor of F.M. and Gloria Young and in recognition of their lead gift.

For over 30 years, Providence has led the way in heart health care advances and innovations. This commitment to leadership and emerging technologies enables our team of professionals to deliver a superior level of care unequalled in Central Texas.

The award-winning staff of cardiac professionals at The Heart Hospital at Providence is unsurpassed in heart health care. Our staff has the highest level of training and certification, dedication to continuing education on the latest technologies and procedures, and a resounding commitment to going the extra mile for our patients. This exceptional level of expertise and dedication to patients' well-being is shared by each staff member through our continuum of cardiac care. Many of our physicians, surgeons, nurses and technicians have been part of the providence heart team since its inception. No wonder they take the health of Central Texans to heart.
