Heart care at Hobbs Hospital focuses on the functions and disorders of
the heart, its connected circulatory system and treating those disorders
– either as part of your routine healthcare or in an emergency situation.
According to the American Heart Association, 84 million people in the
U.S. suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease, affecting blood
flow throughout the body. Cardiovascular disease can lead to heart attacks,
strokes or other serious complications.
Taking good care of your heart can help reduce your risk of developing
heart disease that leads to a heart attack, stroke or other serious complications.
Our cardiac care teams provide complete heart care services – from
helping you create a heart-healthy lifestyle to performing potentially
lifesaving procedures in emergency situations.
Hobbs Hospital’s doctors use
cardiac catheterization to both diagnose and treat heart disease. The cath lab at Hobbs Hospital
provides elective diagnostic and interventional procedures.
During a heart attack, time equals muscle. The longer your heart is deprived
of oxygen, the more muscle tissue you lose. Calling 911 for emergency
help can increase your odds of survival if you're having a heart attack.

Hobbs Hospital has a partnership with local EMS so that EKG results can
be transmitted directly to the ER from the ambulance. EMS can also start
administering oxygen and drugs, if necessary, so that your treatment begins
before you even walk through the door.
