Why Choose Intermountain Healthcare Cardiology?
Because providers at Intermountain Healthcare collaborate regularly and operate under a unified philosophy, our cardiologists regularly communicate with the patient’s primary care physician (PCP), ensuring consistent, comprehensive care. Best of all, cardiologists and PCPs can share medical records in real-time to help prevent important details from being missed when it comes to your care.
A History of Innovation
Intermountain Healthcare cardiology has been at the forefront of leading medical developments in Nevada and is the first healthcare provider in the state to use MRI safe pacemakers and defibrillators. Our team was also the first in the state to treat patients using the WATCHMAN Device, a permanent implant designed to close the left atrial appendage in the heart, reducing the risk of stroke.
Our cardiology division boasts the highest patient satisfaction scores across all of our Nevada services for its significant focus on combining quality care and cost containment.
The division’s Medical Director, Dr. Stephen Portz, was named a 2019 Top Doc by Vegas Inc. Magazine.
Cardiology Services from HealthCare Providers Nevada
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair
Cardiac-care specialists perform aortic repair for abdominal aneurysm using either open repair surgery or less invasive endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) methodologies.
Cardiovascular Disease Management
Using preventative care, education, and testing, our award-winning cardiologists can help you prevent and manage cardiovascular diseases, including high blood pressure, heart health and cholesterol management.
To inspect your arteries for blood clots and plaque buildup, our cardiologists use ultrasound-based diagnostic imaging to ensure the correct course of action is taken for your condition.
For hardening of the arteries, your doctor will first evaluate and confirm the presence of arterial plaque buildup before prescribing treatment which may include either a coronary artery bypass graft or an intervention procedure to improve blood flow to the heart such as balloon angioplasty, rotablation or stent placement.
To measure your heart’s health, your cardiologist will use ultrasound (high-frequency sound waves) for high-resolution imaging.

Cardiology Specialty Leadership
Dr. Stephen Portz, Medical Director
“We operate under a unified philosophy. Cardiology and primary care doctors collaborate to establish a teamwork-focused approach to patient care. We see the patient as the most important role in the care we deliver. We also believe a unified care team who is in contact with each other can deliver more holistic care for you. We see family and patient as part of the care model; as a way to help manage the disease. It’s a team effort from when the patient steps in the door to checkout in order to ensure that the visit is positive.”
