Heart and Vascular
Life is About Thriving. Keep Your Cardiovascular System Healthy.
Living vigorously and feeling exuberant is your aim; not merely just surviving. Keeping your cardiovascular system healthy helps you stay off life’s sidelines. Your cardiovascular system includes your heart as well as the veins and arteries throughout your body. If just one part of this system isn’t working in your body, chances are the others can suffer as well, leading to heart disease, peripheral vascular disease and other complications.
With proper early medical intervention, some forms of heart disease can be treated with diet, exercise, medication or a combination of treatment. The Heart and Vascular Center provides a full range of cardiology services including education on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and follow-up care for people with heart and peripheral vascular disease.

Trauma Center (Injury Prevention Programs)
Did you know the number of traffic related deaths that occur in the United States each year is equivalent to a daily 737 jet crash? Last year, Hillcrest treated over 600 trauma patients with serious or life-threatening injuries.
Almost 30 Texans die every day from traumatic injuries; almost 10,000 each year. Trauma is the leading cause of death in persons aged 1-44 years. For every trauma victim who dies, at least six are seriously injured.
The facts are staggering, but Central Texas has a system in place to help prevent trauma and treat trauma victims. Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center has been verified by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) as meeting the criteria for a Trauma Center. What this means to Central Texans is the level of care provided by the Trauma Team at Hillcrest meets the same standards as other advanced trauma facilities across the nation.
Hillcrest works together with emergency medical service providers, physicians, specialists and area hospitals to provide a full continuum of trauma resources to Central Texans. Studies have shown that such coordination of the emergency medical resources can result in a significant decrease in trauma deaths and disability.
