Prairie Cardiovascular began as a pioneering organization and continues to pursue that tradition through innovative treatments and extensive research and development programs. Its history dates back to 1979 when James T. Dove, MD, envisioned a greater cardiovascular practice in central and southern Illinois based on the motto “Quality, Compassionate, Personal Care.” The care patients receive at Prairie goes far beyond technical excellence.
Dr. Dove's intention was to deliver state-of-the-art heart care to patients while still providing them compassionate, personal care. He succeeded in establishing that platform of excellence for Prairie. That intention can be seen through the actions of the more than 100 board certified physicians and advanced practice clinicians and more than 40 clinic sites in Illinois.
In line with our commitment to remaining the foremost pioneers of advances in life-saving technologies, Prairie is a national leader in the innovation and development of new diagnostic and treatment procedures.
