Over 20 Years of Experience

About ACAP

The Advanced Cardiovascular Assesment Program (ACAP) at the Heartcare Center is part of the Heart and Vascular Hospital (HVH) / Hackensack Meridian Network. In addition to providing expert physician leadership, the program includes our innovative Bodyworks Scan.

Experience Matters

With over 20 years of experience, you can be sure that your safety is our primary concern. We utilize imaging techniques without ionizing radiation to discover cardiovascular conditions, which allows you to work with our medical staff to take early action to prevent debilitating or life-threatening conditions.

For those with pre-exisiting cardiovascular conditions, the ACAP membership takes the level of care beyond what is considered adequate. We offer ongoing customized treatment plans that include our Bodyworks scan as well as traditional heart, vascular and venous testing. Becoming an ACAP member allows you and your medical team to stay as up-to-date as possible on your cardiovascular health.
