Cardiology Services

Leading edge cardiac care. The Heart Hospital of New Mexico at Lovelace Medical Center is the only hospital in New Mexico that is entirely dedicated to heart care. We’ve been recognized by the American Heart Association with the Mission: Lifeline Receiving Center quality achievement award for the treatment of patients who suffer from severe heart attacks.


Our skilled and experienced cardiologists, vascular and cardiothoracic surgeons, electrophysiologists, interventional cardiologists and support staff are committed to the treatment and prevention of heart disease through innovative, state-of-the-art technology. Lovelace Health System offers a full continuum of cardiac services at our hospitals in Albuquerque and Roswell.

Cardiology services and specialties:

Round-the-clock care. Lovelace Westside Hospital offers 24/7 cardiology coverage and a Cardiac Chest Pain Observation Unit. Cardiologists provide consultation to the hospitalists, perform diagnostic testing and services, perform cardioversions, and place temporary and permanent pacemakers.

Minutes matter. Our cardiac hospitals engage in the STEMI (ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction) program. This allows us to expedite care for severe heart attack patients by transferring them to the Heart Hospital of New Mexico for immediate treatment by our skilled interventional cardiology team.
