We offer an exceptional continuum of cardiac services, from heart-healthy clinical dietitians and diagnostic testing to cardiovascular surgery and inpatient rehabilitation after a heart attack. Our skilled cardiologists, cardiovascular and cardiothoracic surgeons, interventional radiologists, and support staff use state-of-the-art technology, offering treatment options for all types of heart and vascular conditions.

Diagnostic Testing and Services

We offer a full range of diagnostic services to detect heart disease. For patients with chest pain, we offer a variety of tests which provide a non-invasive way of evaluating the status of a patient's heart prior to going to the cardiac catheterization or electrophysiology labs. Information from the following tests is reviewed by physicians to determine the best plan of care to offer our patients:

• Stress Testing 
   (Treadmill Testing)

• Electrocardiograms 
   (ECG or EKG)

• Stress Thallium

• Echocardiograms

• Stress&Rest 
   Cardiac

• Nuclear Medicine

• Imaging with X-Ray 
   Attenuation 
   Correction

• Pulmonary Function 
   Testing

• Cardiac Ultrasounds

• Transesophageal Echocardiograms (TEE)

• 3-D Imaging

   

   

Leading Edge Technology: 64-Slice VCT Scanner

With the latest innovation in computed tomography (CT), our brand new 64-slice VCT (volume computed tomography) scanner has the capability to cover a patient's anatomy faster than conventional CT scanners, select any diagnostic study with confidence providing the resolution for spectacular views of veins and arteries, and automatically reformat images to the clinical views needed for diagnosis. This leading-edge technology also gives us the ability to perform CT angiography, rapid scans for ER stroke and chest pain, and whole body trauma.    

64-Slice VCT Procedures:

• CT colonography

• Inner ear ailments

• Cardiac and coronary 
   vessel analysis

• Spinal injuries

• Coronary artery 
   calcification scoring

• Abdominal injuries

•  Angiography studies

• Pediatric 
   assessment

• Trauma/emergency 
   room/chest pain
   evaluation

• Kidney exams

• Stroke workup

• Liver exams

• Oncology/cancer care

• Lung exams

• Pulmonary emboli

 

Interventional Services
Our interventional services are backed by state-of-the-art technology and surgical suites and a team of outstanding physicians and surgeons. Our brand new catheterization and electrophysiology labs and dedicated cardiovascular operating room offer state-of-the-art technology to assist physicians in optimizing patient outcomes.

Catheterization Labs

  • Superior, digital imaging capabilities
  • Roto-blade procedures
  • Upgraded hemodynamic monitoring system
  • Variety of drug-eluding stents

Electrophysiology Lab

  • Pace Maker Insertions
  • Ablation Therapy
  • 3-D Imaging

Dedicated Cardiovascular OR:

  • State-of-the-art laparoscopic suite
  • Designed around the communication needs of the surgeon&his/her team
  • Vividly improved visualization of patient information, i.e. vitals, hemodynamics, angiographies, TEE
  • Allows surgeons to optimize their contact with the OR team; support providers in the ICU, ER, or Lab;&most importantly, with the patient
  • Valve replacement or repairs

Vascular Services

  • 24/7 Emergency Peripheral&Endovascular Surgery
  • Overnight stent graph procedures
  • Capability to do abdominal aortic stents
  • Minimally invasive procedures
  • Decreased recovery time
  • Shorter patient stays
  • Integrated technologies, including IVUS Virtual Histology, which increases positive patient outcomes
  • Allows physicians to examine the cardiac system from a cellular level as well as its blood flow
  • Limb salvation program to treat limbs threatened by amputation

Post-Procedure Recovery&Care

Our newly expanded inpatient Intermediate Care Unit and Cardiac Intensive Care Unit have been designed to provide the best care with state-of-the-art monitoring equipment. We also provide large, private rooms and open visiting hours that allow family members to be present and involved in care.

  • 36-bed Intermediate Care Unit
  • 12-bed Cardiac Intensive Care Unit

Heart Healthy Dietitians

Our clinical dietitians provide heart healthy diet education for our cardiac patients. Cardiac Intensive Care Unit patients receive nutrition assessment and recommendations for both enteral (feeding via a peg tube) and parenteral (intravenous feeding) nutrition formulas.

Physical Therapy Rehabilitation Inpatient Services

Assisting our patients in their recovery process is our top priority. For patients that are undergoing an inpatient procedure, our physical therapy staff provides gait training, therapeutic exercise and functional mobility, and provides additional training for activities of daily living (dressing, grooming, and transfers). We also make safety and equipment recommendations and instruct the patient in appropriate exercises at time of discharge. For the convenience of our patients, referrals are made to outpatient cardiac rehab programs near the patient's home or that are covered under their insurance.
