Welcome to The Heartbeat.  Each week you?ll find new stories from heart patients in Arkansas who have been treated at the Jack Stephens Heart Institute at St. Vincent.  With a skilled and dedicated team of more cardiologists than any other group in the state we?ve connected Arkansas? most experienced heart surgeons with the state?s largest team of cardiologists so they can work seamlessly with all the other specialists our heart patients often need.  We?re making a difference for our patients across Arkansas by creating the state?s largest cardiovascular network around a single purpose: caring for the hearts of Arkansas.

Patients from across the state, who trust their cardiovascular care to the state?s most experienced heart surgeons and a group of 30 equally experienced cardiologists, have volunteered to tell their stories on The Heartbeat.  You?ll see and hear their stories about how the quality of their lives has greatly improved.  These patients have undergone complex surgical procedures; some so advanced that only a handful of the nation?s leading heart programs offer them. Others have experienced cardiac catherization at the Jack Stephens Heart Institute to relieve blockage in the arteries to their hearts, electrophysiology to correct irregular and rapid heartbeats and other procedures to correct heart conditions that have gone undetected since birth.  Their stories can inspire you to change to a healthier lifestyle. 

The Jack Stephens Heart Institute is making a world of difference right now, and will be for years to come.  We?re investing $36 million in the most advanced technology available and introducing the state?s first cardiac hybrid room that?s both a cath lab and a surgical suite ? so our patients can receive the most comprehensive heart care possible.

We?re pleased to partner with KARK TV Channel 4 to bring you The Heartbeat.
