Cardiovascular Medicine Outreach Program
As part of a Land-Grant university, a major mission of MUHC's Cardiovascular Services is to provide state-of-the-art cardiovascular care to the citizens of Missouri, particularly those residing in rural communities.
On a daily basis, a team consisting of a cardiologist, a cardiology nurse, and an ultrasonographer drive to a city in mid-Missouri to conduct an outpatient cardiology clinic. In addition to providing cardiovascular consultation, the team provides non-invasive cardiology services such as echocardiography and stress testing.
When necessary, patients seen at outreach locations are referred to University Hospital or their local health care facility for inpatient evaluation or more specialized cardiovascular testing. Approximately 2,000 patients were seen by cardiovascular specialists at outreach sites in 2009.
Communities currently served by our outreach program include:
For an appointment to see a cardiologist or to schedule diagnostic cardiac testing at an outreach location, please call (800) 359-0098, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. through 4:30 p.m.
