SCL Health and its clinical partners have been delivering high-quality, patient-centered health care in the greater Denver area for decades. Since the 1950s, SCL Health hospitals, including Saint Joseph Hospital and Lutheran Medical Center, have earned a reputation for excellence in treating a variety of heart and vascular conditions.

In fact, SCL Health hospitals were among the first in the region to offer advanced procedures such as angiocardiography, catheterization, and open-heart surgery for coronary bypass and valve replacement.

Today, the tradition of top-rated heart care and clinical leadership continues thanks to clinical partnerships with some of the nation’s leading healthcare providers including National Jewish Health and Kaiser Permanente Colorado. From the latest in minimally invasive treatments to the some of highest-rated quality and outcomes in the Rocky Mountain West, the heart and vascular program combines skill, experience, and innovation to give patients outstanding care.
