Cardiac Services

The Citrus Valley Heart Center provides the most advanced invasive and non-invasive testing and treatment services in East San Gabriel Valley. We use a multidisciplinary team approach at our three campuses. Our Heart Center is located at our Inter-Community Campus in Covina. All three of our hospital campuses, which also include Queen of the Valley Hospital in West Covina, Foothill Presbyterian Hospital in Glendora, perform non-invasive cardiac testing for screening and diagnosis. Rigorous testing capabilities provide our cardiology doctors with all the information they need to implement treatment promptly and effectively. Once a patient is diagnosed and may need treatment they are referred to our Heart Center at Inter-Community Hospital.

Our cardiac non-invasive testing capabilities permit us to determine the presence and extent of cardiac disease and disorder. Our non-invasive state of the art cardiac services at Queen of the Valley Hospital in West Covina include:

  • Electrocardiography or EKG to detect electrical function of the heart.
  • Stress Testing both exercise as well as pharmacological stress testing (non-exercise) which allows us to stimulate exercise for those patients who have orthopedic or other movement difficulties. This test will help us see how the heart functions during exercise.
  • Echocardiogram is a painless procedure which uses a transducer to transmit high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) within the heart chambers and valves. These waves bounce throughout the heart area and produce the images that detect heart damage and/or disease. We have 3-D capability which gives our reading cardiologists the ability to see all angles of the heart.
