Cardiac Care/Heart Center
Ridgeview Medical Center is committed to providing the highest-quality care to cardiac and post-surgical patients, and to those who need cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs. Ridgeview partners with the Minneapolis Heart Institute® at Abbott Northwestern Hospital to provide expanded cardiology services that integrate with our pre-partnership service offerings. The partnership forms the new Minneapolis Heart Institute at Ridgeview Heart Center.
For many years, cardiologists from the Minneapolis Heart Institute* have treated patients at Ridgeview and our associated clinics, providing inpatient cardiology consultations, outpatient consultations and cardiac imaging. With the Ridgeview partnership, patients in the growing west-metro area now have access to world-class cardiovascular care that is typically not available at a regional medical center of Ridgeview’s size.
Comprehensive Cardiovascular Services
The Ridgeview Heart Center offers comprehensive cardiovascular services that include critical care diagnostic testing and treatment, vascular services and a state-of-the-art catheterization lab. We have the most advanced equipment and systems, as well as the medical expertise and personal care to make a difference in our patient experience—all close to the patient's home, family and primary care physician.
Our Heart Center programs address a full range of cardiac care needs, including prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. As part of ongoing chronic cardiovascular disease management, Ridgeview's nationally certified cardiac rehabilitation program helps patients to improve their quality of life through education, counseling and exercise.
Cardiac Care and Heart Center Amenities
Family and visitor amenities at the Ridgeview Heart Center include a lounge with kitchenette and shower, a fireside waiting area, a private consultation room and computer data ports with Internet access.

*The Minneapolis Heart Institute is a nationally recognized leader in cardiac care.
