According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and is the leading cause of disability. At the heart of it all is Oklahoma Heart Institute (OHI), the most comprehensive and premier cardiovascular program in the state. We have been healing hearts for more than 30 years through passion, innovation and dedication toward the fight against heart disease.
OHI combines the expertise of nationally recognized cardiovascular physicans with the region's most advanced technology and personalized patient care. From groundbreaking research and first-time procedures to exceptional quality outcomes, OHI has earned a reputation as one of the finest tertiary cardiovascular care programs in the country.
The American College of Cardiology has partnered with Hillcrest Hospital South to offer an online education tool for our community regarding Early Heart Attack Care (EHAC). EHAC education teaches you to recognize the early signs and symptoms of a heart attack. We want you to become an active bystander so you can save a life — even if it's yours.

According to the American Heart Association, about 90 percent of people who suffer out-of-hospital cardiac arrests die. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), especially if performed immediately, can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim's chance of survival.
Be the difference for someone you love. Hands-Only CPR has been shown to be as effective in the first few minutes as conventional CPR for cardiac arrest at home, at work or in public. To learn more about Hands-Only CPR, click here.
