ProHealth Care opens new heart and vascular center on Waukesha hospital campus

ProHealth Care’s new heart and vascular center brings together ProHealth Heart & Vascular Care’s outpatient services on the campus of ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital. 

Patients visit the center for cardiac and vascular diagnostics, provider office visits and consultations, and cardiac rehabilitation.

Heart and vascular surgery, related interventional services and inpatient care continue to be provided within the hospital.

A centerpiece of the new center is a cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation gym. It includes:

  • A two-lane walking track.

  • 37 pieces of exercise and therapy equipment.

  • A lateral stability trainer and parallel bars for strengthening hips and knees.

  • Stations for patients to self-check blood pressure.

  • Space for yoga and strength-training classes.

  • Patient locker rooms with showers.

The new center also includes 28 patient exam rooms, large consultation rooms for family conferences, and ProHealth atrial fibrillation and arrhythmia programs.

  • Cardiac and vascular ultrasound.

  • Electronic medical device monitoring.

Also featured in the new center is a demonstration kitchen with a classroom.
