Women's Heart Institute of Nevada (WHIN)


Comprehensive care for women at all stages in life

At The Women's Heart Institute of Nevada (more commonly referred to as "The WHIN"), our team of highly trained nurse practitioners, a nutrition and education counselor, an interventional cardiologist and a cardio-oncology specialist, provide gender specific services to all women throughout the Las Vegas valley and surrounding southern Nevada communities.

We offer services to pregnant and postpartum women and the general population of women in Nevada who may be at risk for heart disease. Our goal is to raise awareness and increase women's knowledge about heart disease and the factors that put them at risk and to empower women to take control of their health. To do this, we provide the necessary preventative services that can help women lead healthier lives to reduce their risk for a cardiac event. Specific risk factors we address and monitor women for include hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, family history of heart disease, smoking and sedentary lifestyle. We offer cardiac services, nutrition education and counseling, prenatal, post-partum, menopause and peri-menopause follow-up and care, and assistance with dietary and other lifestyle changes.

Our diverse team of excellent professionals are sensitive, understanding, provide compassionate care and are committed to serving the needs of all women in the Las Vegas valley. With our "one stop shop" at The WHIN complemented by other specialty providers we can refer to within the same building complex, patients at The WHIN can be seen in one location and will get the best possible care specifically for women and provided by women in a caring and supportive environment. We will work with you to give you the most comprehensive care that you need to protect your "heart health!"
