Referring Patients

The Minneapolis Heart Institute® cardiovascular outreach and mobile diagnostic program is one of the largest in the United States. Cardiologists from MHI visit more than 35 communities throughout Minnesota and the Upper Midwest on a regular basis. We feel that the best model for outstanding cardiac and vascular specialty care is to bring the specialists to the primary care setting. So whenever possible, we bring our services, doctors and trained personnel to patients throughout greater Minnesota and western Wisconsin.

Please contact the MHI location that is most convenient for your patient to schedule a cardiovascular consultation or diagnostic procedure or call our Minneapolis location at Abbott Northwestern Hospital at 612-863-3900.
