More Firsts from the First Team in Heart Care

As the region's leading heart care team, we've led the way to better heart health in Central and Northern Wisconsin for generations. Recently, we've added even more firsts to the world-class heart care available right here for you:

Rescue1, which speeds and unites the efforts of local  hospitals and EMTs to get patients needed care faster.

The region's only 128-slice CTA scanner, featuring twice the resolution of any other scanner in the area.

The Nuclear Medicine Rb-82 cardiac PET/CT exam, available only through the Marshfield Clinic and Ministry Health Care heart care team, which yields high definition images of heart function faster.

The Saint Joseph's Hospital Cath Lab is the first in the nation to use Phillips FD20/10 low dose, high definition X-ray imaging in cardiac applications for safer, more comfortable procedures.

... And the cardiac bypass surgery program at Saint Clare's Hospital in Weston has surpassed national quality benchmarks, according to a leading national heart and vascular surgery registry. It should come as no surprise, since the program at Saint Clare's is built upon the same resources and protocols of care as the nationally recognized Saint Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield. It's one team in two locations.
