Our Heart Center on the Ridges Campus in Burnsville includes our outpatient/clinic center which sees patients five days a week for general and subspecialty cardiology consultation, diagnosis and care. Patients have access to our nationally recognized congestive heart failure/cardiomyopathy program (C.O.R.E. Clinic); device (pacemakers and defibrillators) clinic, and heart rhythm and electrophysiology specialists; and heart and vascular diagnostic imaging services. Our Heart Center also has seven days a week hospital inpatient services. 

In 2009, we added a state-of-the-art cardiac and vascular catheterization laboratories with diagnostic and treatment programs. This allows us to provide additional services, including care for emergency and ongoing heart conditions.
