HeartSmart screening program at CHI St. Vincent

Published November 17, 2021

The CHI St. Vincent Heart Institute in Little Rock is helping more Arkansans identify, manage and treat early signs of heart disease by providing easy, advanced detection through its new HeartSmart Screening Program.The new preventative screening program combines a series of tests to identify cardiovascular health risks into a single visit that patients can schedule at their own convenience.

“Our focus here is early detection. The sooner we can detect signs of heart disease, the sooner we can begin proper treatment that focuses on less invasive practices like medication or lifestyle changes rather than a trip to the emergency room,” said Dr. David Griffin, Chief Medical Officer for the CHI St. Vincent Heart Institute.

The HeartSmart Screening is offered every third Friday of each month. Screenings are conducted by appointment only for $75 a person. Contact the Heart Institute to arrange an appointment at:
