Healthy Hearts Start Here!

The Center for Cardiovascular Health at BMH offers a single point of service for patients in need of care during early or advanced stages of heart disease and vascular disease. The Center has two board-certified cardiologists, a vascular surgeon and a highly qualified professional staff that provide patients with superior service, from diagnosis to post-procedure recovery.

Along the way, we provide our cardiovascular patients with the resources they need to make well-informed decisions about their medical care and treatment. We realize that quality care largely depends on the relationships you form with your health care providers. You’ll find the cardiologists at the Center for Cardiovascular Health have the skills, knowledge and compassion to meet and exceed all your expectations.

Cardiac Rehabilitation at BMH

Cardiac rehabilitation is a comprehensive 12-week outpatient program of risk factor modification, education, and exercise specially designed for people recovering from heart attacks, heart surgery, angioplasty, having stents put in place, or continued angina symptom.

Cardiologists Mark Burke, MD and Michael Cohan, DO offer their expertise to heart patients by diagnosing the problem and then prescribing the treatment which can range from medication, exercise, dietary changes to cardiac catheterizations. Patients needing cardiac catheterizations are referred by Drs. Burke and Cohan to our tertiary medical center, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center for those procedures.
