Heart Care at Infirmary Health

Your heart health has been years in the making. So has our care. A leader in the Southeast, we opened Mobile’s first coronary unit in 1966 and performed the area’s first open-heart surgery in 1978.

Since then, the advances have multiplied as we continue to lead the way with top physicians, technology and patients who are committed to creating the best years of their lives.

  • Top technologies for prevention and early intervention.  Minutes matter—so do years. We help patients and physicians see as far into the future as possible to prevent problems and move toward good health.
  • Award-winning care. Infirmary Health is designated as a Blue Distinction Center for Cardiac Care by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama. Thomas Hospital Heart Center has been named among the nation’s top 100 for the past four years.
  • Full services. Infirmary Health offers one of the state’s most comprehensive centers for diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation with a full complement of catheterization labs, diagnostics, open-heart suites and care units.
  • Time-saving design. Mobile Infirmary and Thomas Hospital keep our award-winning cardiac services together, keeping families informed and patients on the fast-track.
  • Top rehabilitation. Want to take control of your health? You’re not alone. Operation Bounce-Back is the largest medically supervised cardiac rehabilitation program in the state.

The American Heart Association proudly recognizes Mobile Infirmary with the Get With The Guidelines®-Resuscitation BRONZE Achievement Award Hospital and Adult Patient Population Recognition.

Mobile Infirmary has received the Get With The Guidelines®–Heart Failure Gold Quality Achievement Award for implementing specific quality improvement measures. Get With The Guidelines® is the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s hospital-based quality improvement program that provides hospitals with the latest research-based guidelines. Developed with the goal of saving lives and hastening recovery, the program has touched the lives of more than 4 million patients since 2001.

Heart Center (Thomas Hospital)

Thomas Hospital Heart Center has been named among the 100 top cardiovascular hospitals in the nation for the past four years. The center consists of two open-heart surgery rooms with support space, two fully-equipped operating rooms, a seven-bed surgical intensive care unit with dedicated waiting room, two state-of-the-art cardiovascular labs and an eleven-bed coronary-vascular recovery area.

Every effort is focused on patient outcomes, safety, comfort and security. We assign a nurse to each family to escort them, answer questions and provide frequent updates on the patient's progress.

The award-winning cardiac program includes such services as dedicated cardiac beds in the emergency room, non-invasive diagnostics, catheterization labs, open-heart surgery and a cardiac rehabilitation program.

Thomas Hospital STAT Heart Program 

The Thomas Hospital STAT Heart Program was the first in the region to focus on streamlining emergency care to meet the national goal of providing angioplasty (a non-surgical procedure to treat diseased arteries) within 90 minutes from a patient’s arrival at the hospital (often referred to as door-to-balloon time.)

The Stat Heart program is a collaborative effort between MedStar EMS, North Baldwin EMS, North Baldwin Infirmary, South Baldwin Hospital, local physicians and urgent care clinics in Baldwin County that was initiated by Thomas Hospital. This partnership insures that patients located in the rural community receive emergent heart care as fast, as or faster than patients in larger urban areas. Since the launch of the STAT Heart Program in 2004, the program has served more than 730 patients in Baldwin County who have suffered from a heart attack.
