Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Carlson "Because of our long term alignment with Penrose St. Francis Health Services, the Penrose-St. Francis Heart & Vascular Center brings together cardiologists, cardiac and vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists and other specialists to provide the most advanced and effective treatments for heart and vascular care. We tackle heart and vascular disease from several fronts - from prevention and screening to the newest treatments in cardiology and vascular surgery. Our tradition of leadership and innovation dates back to 1964, when the first open heart surgery in southern Colorado was performed at Penrose Hospital."
