BHC has experienced steady growth since its inception in 1994.
Located in Trussville, Alabama, just a few blocks away from St. Vincent’s East (Medical Center East) hospital, Birmingham Heart Clinic’s corporate facility contains clinical offices and a full range of diagnostic equipment. The on-site diagnostic facility was one of Birmingham’s first to earn accreditation by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL). It was also one of the first 1,000 echocardiography labs in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico to be recognized for its commitment to high-quality patient care and diagnostic testing. BHC also utilizes a GE 64-slice PET1 CT scanner to provide top-quality computed tomography imaging, a non-invasive diagnostic method that reduces patients’ needs for invasive heart catheterization studies. Additionally, the Spectranetics Corporation recognized BHC as a Center of Excellence for coronary and peripheral laser ablation therapy— the only group in Birmingham, Alabama to receive this honor.
Birmingham Heart Clinic now has five other locations in addition to the two near St. Vincent’s East: St Vincent’s Birmingham, Northside Medical Associates in Pell City, St. Vincent’s Blount in Oneonta, St. Vincent’s Primary Care in Hoover and St. Vincent’s Cardiology Clinic in Gardendale, Alabama.
