- Highly qualified and experienced heart and vascular doctors who work as a team. Committed not only to heart disease diagnosis and treatment, they also target heart disease prevention.
- Individualized treatment plans.
- An expert, compassionate staff.
- The latest technology and diagnostic testing.

HonorHealth's five medical centers in Phoenix and Scottsdale follow the highest standards for diagnostic heart tests, cardiac catheterization, post-acute care, recovery and cardiac rehabilitation. The health system's specialists range from highly trained and experienced cardiologists and interventional cardiologists to cardiovascular and vascular surgeons to radiologists.
If you need heart surgery, you should know that the best outcomes occur at hospitals where specialists perform a high number of cardiac surgeries. This is the case at three HonorHealth hospitals — Scottsdale Shea, Deer Valley and John C. Lincoln medical centers.
Each facility not only has floors dedicated to cardiac care but also highly trained specialists, nurses and technologists on staff to care for you.
HonorHealth Heart and Vascular Institute
Another reason to turn to HonorHealth for your cardiac care? The HonorHealth Heart and Vascular Institute. Composed of more than 80 carefully selected cardiovascular specialists, the institute's experts are known for their:
- Experience, reputation and dedication to personalized care.

- Standardized reports that ease data interpretation and decision making.
- Dedication to meeting door-to-balloon time — a national quality metric designed to limit heart damage when you suffer a heart attack — 95 percent of the time. Patients need to receive cardiac catheterization to open a blocked artery in 90 minutes or less.
