Services

Superior Cardiovascular Care

The heart is the most important muscle in your body, and the specially trained cardiologists, technologists and nurses of Mercy Hospital Grayling work hard to provide the very best heart care possible.

The cardiology services staff will help your practitioner or cardiologist evaluate your risk for heart problems and treat any heart conditions you may have. Trained and experienced staff work with the latest digital equipment to provide a variety of stress tests, echocardiograms, EKGs and heart monitoring services. Additionally, we offer a range of cardiac rehab services including supervised exercise and education for clients that have had cardiac events, those at risk for cardiac events, or those just wanting to start a supervised exercise program.

In our testing area, we offer many of the same tests and services that are offered at larger hospitals. Our friendly, personable staff has many years of experience and provides a safe, comfortable experience. Your tests are stored and sent digitally to specialists in radiology, cardiology and internal medicine. If you already see a heart doctor in this area, they will read your test in most cases. Tests can be scheduled and performed quickly, often within a few days of your practitioner's request. Test results can be available the next day if necessary for your practitioner.

Our cardiac rehab area provides a safe environment for you to begin an exercise program after a cardiac event or surgery. Staff will individualize and monitor your exercise therapy with daily heart rate/blood pressure checks, and heart rhythm monitoring if appropriate. You will have an opportunity to ask questions and learn healthier lifestyle behaviors. We will track and report your progress to your physician. In the event of an abnormality, the necessary staff and treatment is readily available, and staff can contact your physician.

Discuss with your primary care provider the importance of having your exam done locally. Your testing can be scheduled by calling Central Scheduling at 989-348-0380.

We also know the importance of keeping care local, which is why we have partnered with Munson Healthcare and Traverse Heart and Vascular to provide cardiologists in the office setting in Grayling and Prudenville. Patients can schedule appointments with the cardiologist physicians without having to drive to Traverse City, while also completing their cardiac testing and cardiac rehab right at Mercy Hospital Grayling.
