Experience. Care. Trust.
CHI has been providing cardiology healthcare for over 20 years. We have served over 46,000* patients since 1998.
We helped educate our community, fight heart disease, and helped our patients have a better quality of life.
We now see far less tragic events –massive heart attacks and strokes– then we did when we started.
We did it because we believed in you, and you believed in us.
