MHF - Cardiovascular Health

Cardiovascular disease (CVD), including heart disease and stroke, remains the No. 1 killer of Americans and exacts a disproportionate toll on many racial and ethnic groups that have higher rates of CVD and its risk factors. Erlanger is working to “Close the Gap” to reduce heart health disparities for African American and Hispanic/Latino populations as well as women.

Let's Work Together to Close the Gap!

Expanding Access to Life-Saving Heart Attack Care

Under the leadership of Medical Director, John Golding, MD, Erlanger East has become a STEMI Receiving Facility staffed and equipped 24/7 to treat and manage the most serious heart attacks. Learn More on the Erlanger East Cardiology Webpage

Close the Gap on Stroke

Erlanger has the first and only comprehensive stroke center in the Chattanooga region as recognized by DNV-GL. No place on earth can do more if you have a stroke.
