Heart and Vascular Care

heart attack

Find lifesaving heart care right in your own backyard
After a heart attack, blood flow stops—the sooner doctors restore blood flow the better, because time is muscle and every wasted minute causes permanent heart damage. Freeman Heart & Vascular Institute, located in Joplin, Missouri, offers you rapid, expert care.

Our board-certified cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons offer you a heart care program competitive with those found at top-quality facilities across the country—services include preventive care, emergency interventions, diagnostics, open-heart surgeries, rehabilitation, cardiology clinics, and education.

Recognized by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield in Missouri as a Blue Distinction Center® for Cardiac Care, Freeman Heart & Vascular Institute provides all cardiac services in one convenient location. The facility, a 3-story wing adjacent to Freeman Hospital West, has 3 state-of-the-art operating suites and 4 cardiovascular catheterization labs. Research is an integral part of our heart and vascular program. We participate in many national studies of cardiovascular treatment. From time to time, patients may be offered the opportunity to participate in clinical trials.
