Heart Care Services
When it comes to heart services, Sterling Regional MedCenter takes an integrated approach to patient care. With an emphasis on an accurate diagnosis to initiate a personalized treatment plan, Sterling provides the following services:
- Computed Tomography
- Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG)
- Cardiac Nuclear Imaging
- Treadmill Stress Testing
These diagnostic procedures are conducted on an outpatient basis. Results are then interpreted and sent to your physician who will discuss the findings with you. Sterling staff will provide specific instruction at the time of scheduling as well as direction and assistance during the tests.
CardioVascular Institute (CVI) cardiologists are on campus to diagnosis and provide comprehensive treatment of cardiac, vascular and electrophysiology disorders. When patients require more advanced diagnostic, surgical or non-surgical care, Sterling is proud to partner with the CardioVascular Institute of North Colorado. Ranked among the best in the nation for cardiac care, the institute can perform these and other services:
- cardiac catheterization
- open heart surgery
- interventional electrophysiology studies
- bioZ impedance cardiography (ICG)
- electrocardiography (ECG or EKG)
- nuclear imaging

Patients recovering from a cardiac event or those seeking to lower their risk of future heart problems can take advantage of Sterling’s cardiac rehabilitation program. We encourage you to learn more about our inpatient and outpatient services.
