Methodist Heart and Lung Institute was established in 2001 as a hospital within a hospital. Any facility desiring to maintain the highest level of heart services should have a full complement of services available through a large full-service hospital like Methodist Hospital. We know that heart patients often need additional medical services including diabetes care, radiology imaging, pharmacy and more.

If you are having a heart attack, we are here to administer quick, lifesaving treatment. Methodist Heart and Lung Institute has earned a chest pain center designation and far exceeds the national standards for waiting time between admittance and operation, also called ‘door to balloon.’ Quick action can save your life and reduce the side effects and severity of your heart attack.

Our hospitals are furnished with advanced equipment that monitors your heart rate while you are on your way to the hospital, allowing our medical team to immediately administer care as soon as you arrive.
