Comprehensive Cardiovascular Services
UnityPoint Health - Trinity offers the Quad Cities, including western Illinois and eastern Iowa, access to state-of-the-art cardiovascular services, including life-saving interventional cardiology procedures and open-heart surgery. Under the guidance of a team of skilled cardiologists and heart surgeons, Trinity's cardiovascular services combine experienced staff with modern technological advances.
Trinity's cardiovascular services include:
Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization
Trinity has five state-of-the-art Cath Labs with digital technology located at Trinity Rock Island and Trinity Bettendorf locations.
Utilizing the latest advancement in technology, Trinity's experienced interventional cardiologists perform balloon angioplasty, stent placement and other treatment to open obstructed cardiac arteries in the Catheterization Lab, which can reduce the need for more invasive bypass surgery.
Comprehensive Cardiac Surgical Care
Trinity offers life-saving open-heart surgeries, including both bypass surgery and valve repair and replacement.
This includes the radiofrequency ablation MAZE procedure to cure atrial fibrillation, transmyocardial laser revascularization and minimally invasive off-pump coronary bypass (without cardiopulmonary bypass).
Thoracic Aortic Surgery Program
Patients with thoracic aneurysms no longer have to travel to institutions outside of the greater Quad Cities area for their surgery.
Heart rhythm management services including pacemaker installations and ablations.
Non-Invasive Diagnostic Testing
Trinity offers a full array of non-invasive diagnostic testing including echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography, stress echoes, EKG's, Holter monitor tests, stress tests and vascular lab tests.
Trinity Rock Island is a designated Level II Trauma Center. Time is of vital importance when treating a heart attack. The longer you wait the more the heart muscle is damaged. Never delay calling 911 for help if you suspect you are having a heart attack. At Trinity, our emergency department physicians and staff are specially trained to quickly assess and treat our patients.
Trinity offers Phase I, II and III cardiac rehabilitation supervised by a cardiologist to assist patients in the recovery of a heart attack or heart condition.
Cardiac Inpatient Care Services
Trinity provides an inpatient Cardiovascular Unit for cardiac patients needing intensive care as well as a telemetry monitored Cardiac Step-Down Units for those in need of intermediate care.
Home Health Care
Trinity has a dedicated Home Health Care program through UnityPoint at Home whose nursing staff can assist in the treatment regimen for those with chronic cardiac conditions.
Our cardiac research team at Trinity participates in industry-sponsored and investigator-initiated research projects in a variety of cardiac subspecialties including invasive and non-invasive cardiology, electrophysiology, and heart failure management. In 2010, our cardiac research team participated in 14 research studies enrolling over 500 patients. Our goal in cardiac research is to incorporate the research findings into improved patient care measures and outcomes.
Half who die of heart disease won't even know they were at risk. 90% of first-time heart attacks can be prevented through proper screenings a new study shows. Trinity offers a free risk assessment called Trinity HeartAware that helps people learn their risk of stroke, heart, or vascular diseases. At risk participants are offered a free follow-up consultation with a HeartAware nurse, free cholesterol screening and other heart health information to help people improve their health.
