Cardiovascular and Diabetes Center
Comprehensive cardiac, vascular, and diabetes care all in one location
When cardiovascular disease or diabetes are health concerns, you want the finest care possible. The Cardiovascular and Diabetes Center remains the region's first state-of-the-art facility to offer comprehensive cardiac, vascular, and diabetes care all in one location.
Board-certified specialists, supported by a team of highly trained healthcare professionals, offer the latest strategies from prevention and screening to intervention, treatment, disease management, and rehabilitation. Our long-standing relationship with the New England Heart Institute of Catholic Medical Center now includes collaboration with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nashua physicians whose patients may benefit from our program of comprehensive cardiovascular and diabetes care.
The Center offers comprehensive diabetes treatment and management (the first program of its kind in Nashua), is ADA-accredited, and provides front-line therapies combined with education classes, access to support groups, and free risk screenings.
The newly expanded Cardiovascular and Diabetes Center, located in our ambulatory care building, features comfortable patient areas and easy, seamless access to the following services:
Diagnostic and treatment services

Nutrition, cholesterol management, diabetes education, wound care, and medications play an important role for persons diagnosed with cardiovascular disease and diabetes, and even for those persons who are at risk for developing these diseases.
Heart care at St. Joseph Hospital is now more advanced than ever. It was during the Big Game last February when Gregg, a 37-year-old husband and father from Amherst, experienced chest discomfort and went to the St. Joseph Hospital emergency department.
