The Roanoke Heart Institute PLC (RHI) is a referral center that provides comprehensive noninvasive cardiac imaging services as well as clinical consultation for patients with cardiovascular diseases, including prevention, early detection and treatment of diseases such as atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) and chronic heart failure.
The RHI emphasizes risk factor management and control of hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, and diabetes. We apply the latest technology in noninvasive imaging and clinical care when and where appropriate, managing acute disease in the hospital setting, bridging the gap between inpatient and outpatient care for our patients.
The RHI continues to lead the way in cardiovascular clinical research in southwestern Virginia, offering our patients access to new treatments and diagnostic tests.
Patients, please use the front door facing McClanahan Street for access. Parking is on the side of the building in our reserved lot; the entrance to this lot is next to the front door. We welcome you to our outpatient center. Please call (540) 981-2105 for information.
COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) UPDATE:
Please note that the RHI is not equipped to provide testing or direct treatment for COVID-19 infection. However, we are doing our best to prevent the spread of this virus.
You will be asked the following questions before being allowed to enter the RHI: 1) Are you having flu-like symptoms, such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath? 2) Have you recently traveled to a high-risk area for transmission of COVID-19? and 3) Have you been in close contact with someone confirmed or is being evaluated for COVID-19? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, please obtain care in a location that is appropriate given the latest CDC guidelines for COVID-19 management.
We are also responding to the COVID-19 pandemic with aggressive medical treatment of cardiovascular disease on an outpatient basis, sparing hospital resources for COVID-19 patients. Cardiovascular diseases, including hypertension, have been positively linked with mortality in COVID-19. These days, don’t forget to take care of your heart!
We have started a new telemedicine initiative to allow for remote video conferencing with RHI personnel. We encourage you to continue routine follow-up office visits using telemedicine.
