Rose Medical Center unveiled the first of three new Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories (Cath Labs) in early July, 2018. The state-of-the-art labs are part of a multi-million dollar investment the hospital has made in enhancing the delivery of cardiovascular services.
The Cath Lab Suite, which includes the new labs, also boasts an eight-room Cardiac Patient Care Unit (CPCU), a physician reading room, nurses station, offices and a dedicated visitor waiting area.
“One of our goals was to consolidate our resources into a central location,” says Lauren Meehan, nurse manager of the Cath Lab at Rose, who was thoroughly involved in the new build. “In our new suite, we have all the elements of care that a cardiovascular patient might need just around the corner.”
This consolidation of resources allows cardiovascular patients with planned outpatient procedures to have their entire hospital experience on a single unit, from admission to procedure to recovery and same-day discharge—a convenience the hospital hopes will decrease stress for patients and their loved ones.
The following catheterization and heart and vascular procedures are offered in the cath lab at Rose.
Diagnostic cardiac catheterization:
Nitric oxide study for pulmonary hypertension
Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE)
Coronary intervention program:
Nationally recognized Cardiac Alert® program
High-risk coronary stenting with advanced therapies (Impella)
