• Appalachian Heart Center

    Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in Kentucky. To make sure patients in Eastern Kentucky have access to the most advanced heart care available, Appalachian Heart Center has joined the University of Kentucky Hospital's Gill Heart Institute. This means our patients can continue to see the same local doctors and receive the latest medical treatments available without having to leave their community.

    We offer a comprehensive approach to heart and vascular health, from cardiovascular wellness to the treatment of life-threatening complications using the newest therapies and devices. Our doctors provide a full range of services for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
