Mercy Medical is looking to improve its cardiac services at St. Anne's Hospital in west Toledo.
The hospital system is pumping a $3.7 million in to St. Anne's to offer a full service cardiovascular program.
Expanded services will include heart catheterization, coronary angioplasty, and stenting, and open heart surgery.
CEO Brad Bertke of Mercy St. Anne said this improvement is a high priority for the hospital that will benefit residents in Lucas County.
"Cardio vascular disease is a very common, chronic condition. It's the number one killer of folks in Toledo, so providing access to these services is critically important, " said Bertke.
Construction is expected to be complete by the end of August.
