Hearth Health & Cardiovascular Medicine

Your island home for heart health



Even 30 miles at sea, your heart is in good hands. Nantucket Cottage Hospital’s cardiovascular health services include diagnostic, treatment, and ongoing care options that can save you the time and expense of leaving the island. More importantly, they could save your life. Through a partnership with Massachusetts General Hospital, our cardiology clinic brings some of the finest specialists in the region to Nantucket. Dr. Joseph Garasic, the medical director of MGH’s cardiac access unit, sees island patients at Nantucket Cottage Hospital on a monthly basis. Our diagnostic imaging services, including heart and vascular ultrasounds, MRIs and CT scans, are often part of a cardiovascular evaluation and are read remotely by some of the finest radiologists and echocardiographers in the world at MGH.

Our cardiology program services include:

  • Echocardiograms
  • Diagnostic imaging (MRI, CT)
  • Heart ultrasound
  • Vascular ultrasound
