Whether you need open heart surgery or nutrition counseling, our team of cardiac specialists are committed to providing you with an excellent experience and an excellent outcome. We have immediate access for emergencies, expert physicians and staff, and nationally accredited care.
Nationally accredited cardiac care
Genesis Heart & Vascular Services was the first to become a fully accredited Chest Pain Center in Southeastern Ohio. We are also recognized for awards in the treatment of Echocardiography and stroke. In addition, our outcomes and patient experience scores rank among the highest in the state and nation.
Experienced cardiologists and surgeons close to home
Genesis Heart & Vascular Services eliminates the need to go out of town for specialized care.
Our board-certified specialists include cardiologists, cardiothoracic vascular surgeons, electrophysiologists, interventional cardiologists, cardiac anesthesiologists and cardiac rehab specialists. Our team also includes a highly trained cardiac support staff of specially trained nurses and experienced navigators who will assist you along our continuum of care.
Hybrid operating rooms and minimally invasive procedures
Our hybrid operating room (OR) features highly sophisticated imaging technology such as C-Arms, CT scanners and MRI scanners. The OR can be quickly transformed to accommodate minimally invasive procedures or major operations such as open heart surgery. We have specialized labs equipped with the latest technology for electrophysiology, catheterization and vascular procedures. Our comprehensive care also includes a heart and vascular rehabilitation program, a vein clinic and an anticoagulation clinic.
Emergency, preventative and continued care
With immediate access for emergencies, expert physicians and staff, and nationally accredited care, we’re committed to providing superior outcomes and creating an outstanding experience for each and every patient and family.
Our specialists are experienced in both Sudden Cardiac Arrest, when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating, as well as Myocardial Infarction, which occurs when the blood flow to a certain part of the heart is blocked.
12-lead EKG saves lives
Before you even arrive at our Emergency Department (ED) by ambulance, our ED doctors and cardiac team already have a plan to stop your heart attack. That’s because Genesis Hospital and Genesis Community Ambulance have partnered to equip Emergency Medical Services (EMS) vehicles with 12-lead EKG monitors so they can determine if you are having a heart attack before arriving at the hospital. This lead time enables the hospital’s heart team to be ready to intervene as soon as you arrive. They can literally stop a heart attack in its tracks.
We can help you manage conditions that can lead to serious heart problems. These include high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure and Metabolic Syndrome, which is a group of health problems that include excess fat around the waist, elevated blood pressure and blood sugar, high triglycerides and low HDL cholesterol.
When your heart is unable to properly pump the blood your body needs, you are suffering from heart failure. Our specialists will help you manage and treat your condition with lifestyle changes, medicines and when necessary, pacemakers and defibrillators.
There are many types of arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) that range from minor to life-threatening. Our cardiac team of electrophysiologists will evaluate the severity of your irregular heartbeat and recommend appropriate treatments based on your individual need.
Peripheral artery and vein disease
This narrowing or blockage of the arteries or veins in your legs, arms or torso is caused by plaque buildup. From evaluation and diagnosis through lifestyle changes and treatments, which may include drug therapy or a minimally invasive procedure, our interventional cardiologists will provide guidance to help you minimize the effects of these conditions.
Heart and vascular rehabilitation
Our program combines exercise, education and support to help you restore and maintain your physical, psychological and vocational well-being.
Continued cardiac care
Our comprehensive services include diagnostic testing; a rehabilitation gym; the Anticoagulation Clinic (for monitoring your blood when taking blood-thinning medications); the Vein Clinic; and the Congestive Heart Failure Clinic.
Community partnerships with American Heart Association
Each year, Genesis is proud to partner with the American Heart Association (AHA) for its annual HeartChase Zanesville event. HeartChase, an AHA signature event, educates the community on the prevention of heart disease. Genesis partners with the AHA by serving as the presenting sponsor, holding HeartChase on the Genesis Hospital campus, and serving on the Executive Leadership Team that raises money and plans the event.
Expect the best from Genesis
Throughout every aspect of your care, we strive to provide compassion, trust, dedication, innovation and excellence. From prevention through rehabilitation, Genesis provides the quality, comprehensive heart and vascular care you need close to home.
