Heart & Vascular Care Play

Allegiance Health offers a complete range of heart services, from risk prevention education through cardiac rehabilitation. Our Heart and Vascular Center brings open-heart surgical services to the Jackson community for the first time.

Led by University of Michigan cardiovascular surgeons Mahender Macha, MD, and Vincent Simonetti, MD, the Heart and Vascular Center features technologically advanced operating rooms and a Cardiac Universal Bed wing with 20 private patient rooms.

This unit is designed so patients can remain in the same spacious room from post-surgery recovery through discharge -- avoiding the discomfort and inconvenience of moving to different areas of the hospital for each level of care.

Allegiance Health's state-of-the-art emergency angioplasty program continues to beat national best-practice time standards for procedures in which minutes saved mean heart muscle saved.

The care teams at Allegiance Vascular Health and the Diagnostic Vascular Laboratory detect and prevent damage from blocked carotid arteries and abdominal aneurisms. And our Cardiac Rehabilitation coaches patients on physical exercise and proper nutrition to rebuild strength and prevent further heart attacks and strokes.

With our experienced professionals, advanced technology and award-winning quality care -- you can trust your heart to Allegiance Health.
