Welcome to Prairie Cardiovascular

Prairie Cardiovascular is a pioneering organization. Its history dates back to 1979 when James T. Dove, M.D., envisioned a greater cardiovascular practice in central and southern Illinois based on the motto “Quality, Compassionate, Personal Care.” The care patients receive at Prairie goes far beyond technical excellence.

In 1982, when Dr. James Dove founded Prairie Cardiovascular in Springfield, Illinois, it was his intention to deliver state-of-the-art heart care to patients while still providing them compassionate, personal care. He succeeded in establishing that platform of excellence for Prairie.

Prairie’s mission was created from this simple motto: “To optimally serve our patients and their physicians in the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease with compassion and dignity, assurance of quality, research and education.”

Prairie currently has more than 70 board certified physicians and 45 clinic sites in Illinois. Prairie is a national leader in the innovation and development of new diagnostic and treatment procedures and continues to advance medicine with a very active research program.
