Loyola's Center for Heart & Vascular Medicine offers comprehensive heart and vascular care with nationally known experts, leading-edge technologies and multidisciplinary teams. We are the first hospital in Illinois with the ability to stop a heart attack in its tracks 24 hours a day, seven days a week with our Heart Attack Rapid Response Team (HARRT). U.S. News & World Report ranked us 29th in the nation for cardiology and heart surgery in 2014-2015. Loyola has the only cardiology program in Chicago to be nationally ranked for 12 years in a row.
