Your heart is in the right hands at Memorial. From diagnosis through surgery and rehabilitation, Memorial’s Heart Program offers a full continuum of care. Our outstanding staff of cardiologists, surgeons, nurses, and specialists perform more than 25,000 total cardiac procedures annually. Using advanced techniques and technology, Memorial’s Heart Team collaborates to ensure high-quality care for the hearts of Las Cruces and Southern New Mexico.

Chest Pain Accreditation

Memorial has received full accreditation as a Chest Pain Center from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care. This means that we have demonstrated a high level of expertise in caring for patients who arrive with symptoms of a heart attack. Through the combined efforts of our Heart Team (Emergency Services, Cath Labs, Telemetry, Cardiac Care Unit, Laboratory, Imaging/Radiology, and Engineering/Facilities) we created an exceptional cardiac patient process to earn this accreditation.

Heart Failure Accreditation

Memorial Medical Center is now a fully accredited Heart Failure Center from the American College of Cardiology. This accreditation means that we demonstrate a level of expertise in caring for patients that have been diagnosed with heart failure. Heart failure can be a very difficult disease to manage because of the many complexities, but our heart failure nurse navigator and nurse practitioner do just that. The ultimate goal is to keep patients out of the hospital and at home with their families through the means of patient individualized treatment plans, medication management, and education.

Continuum of Care

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehab is a prescribed cardiac treatment regimen that involves a medical and physical evaluation as well as nutrition and medical education for a patient after a cardiac incident. We provide an individualized exercise program that will address the cardiac disease and interventions of the patient. Our goal is to improve their strength and stamina so our patients will be able to return to their usual daily routine. All physical activities are performed using a cardiac monitoring system, with a registered nurse and a nurse aid’s supervision.
