Quality Outcomes & National Recognition

The Pursuit of Perfection

According to the American Heart Association, approximately one person in this country dies each minute due to a cardiac event. To meet the undeniable need for exceptional cardiac care, at the Sands-Constellation Heart Institute (SCHI) we have one simple rule: Never settle for anything less than perfection.

That standard drives SCHI's pursuit of excellence in every aspect of patient care and inspires our dedication to a process that has taken shape over two decades and continues to evolve today. Our record of excellence has earned SCHI some remarkable reviews.
