The North Memorial Health Advantage

  • We are a hospital of firsts: We’re not only the first hospital in Minnesota to receive full Heart Failure Accreditation from the American College of Cardiology for excellence in the care and management of heart failure, we’re also the first and only hospital in Minnesota (8th nationwide) to earn Chest Pain Center (CPC) with Primary PCI accreditation. We’re the only hospital to have both accreditations.
  • We have one of the fastest response times in the nation when it comes to treating a heart attack: In 2016, our door-to-balloon time was 57 minutes, as compared to a national goal of 90 minutes.
  • We’re also great at long-term care: We combine our diagnostic, rehabilitative, and comprehensive care programs with personalized education within our clinics. You leave with the tools, empowerment, and support you need for lasting success.
  • We create custom care plans: Because vein conditions can arise from systemic cardiovascular issues, board-certified cardiologists perform vein procedures at North Memorial Health. Our cardiologists know that it’s important to evaluate your entire cardiovascular system to determine the best treatment options for you.

We offer free screenings for people who are concerned about symptoms of varicose veins or peripheral artery disease (PAD).

  • To learn more, and to schedule your free PAD screening call 763- 581-6736
  • To learn more, and to schedule your free varicose vein screening call 763-581-5423

My husband has always raved about how wonderful his doctor is; now I know why! He is understanding, compassionate and competent.

One of the best and most thorough doctors I have ever had. Answers all questions. Listens carefully. Goes beyond simple par of the fix (a prescription refill) to talk about details of diet. I cannot say enough.
