Sharp Memorial Hospital
Heart Attack and Stroke Program at Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, yet it often goes undetected until something serious occurs. The good news is that it's a highly preventable disease and one of the most treatable, especially when caught early.
The Cushman Wellness Center at the Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion offers a comprehensive evaluation that gives you an accurate report of your heart attack and stroke risk in 90 minutes or less.
Our evaluation features SphygmoCor® XCEL technology, which noninvasively measures the blood pressure at your heart. We use the powerful CardioHealth ultrasound that allows our experienced practitioners to scan patients for hidden plaque build-up and increased thickness in the artery wall — both common signs of cardiovascular disease.
Heart attack and stroke screening.
Our heart attack and stroke program is focused on the prevention and early detection of cardiovascular disease. The Cushman Wellness Center offers a heart attack and stroke screening to patients, which includes:

- Lipid cholesterol panel

Following your screening, your results will be summarized by an experienced clinician, who will help you identify steps for achieving and maintaining your best health.
