About the Dorothy and Larry
Dallas Heart Center
How We Put Your Gifts to Work:
Proceeds from the 2017 Heart and Soul event funded upgrades of equipment and state-of-the-art Imaging Center. The Imaging Center combines the most advanced pediatric diagnostic imaging in the region with a focus on comfort for children, and provides more comprehensive information about a young child’s heart than ever before.
Funds also supported the expansion of the Dallas Heart Center, allowing the cardiology clinic to increase from seven clinical exam rooms to 12 exam rooms, which helps the providers see more patients on any given day. The cardiology clinic also gained an additional height and weight room to help with decreasing patient wait time. The larger waiting room in the Dallas Heart Center provides patients and families more room prior to their visit and the ability to view videos and pictures that patients and families share with the staff. The expanded echo reading room for the cardiology providers has also been a great improvement for the reading of diagnostic studies and education for the cardiology fellows.
The Dorothy and Larry Dallas Heart Center at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon makes cardiology care more convenient and more accessible for patients and their families. Our center performs more than 23,000 visits and procedures each year. Having the only pediatric hybrid cardiac catheterization suite in the region allows cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons to work together to provide the best options for patients.
