Central Maine Heart and Vascular Institute (CMHVI) was created to bring the most skilled medical specialists and innovative treatments to the people of central Maine and beyond, including rural areas whose residents previously had limited access to high quality care. We provide a wide array of services ranging from conservative medical care and rehabilitation to surgery for common—and sometimes complex—heart and vascular conditions. We also focus heavily on educating our community and preventing disease before it develops. In February we Go Red for Women to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease in women.
Our cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and other skilled professionals provide specialty care to inpatients at CMHVI and Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston. Outpatient care is delivered from CMHVI’s Lewiston offices and at other locations throughout central and western Maine.
We are also very committed to preventing stroke and providing rapid, appropriate treatment to stop or mitigate its debilitating effects. For the past two years our efforts have been recognized by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association with its Get With The Guidelines®: Stroke Honor Roll Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award.
