Our procedures include Right/Left Heart Catheterizations, percutaneous coronary/peripheral interventions, AAA stent repairs, and Transcutaneous Aortic Valve Repair (TAVR), EP Ablations, and pacemaker/ICD implants. We have a dedicated nine bay holding area so we can handle our patients from start to finish. We run our rooms with two RNs/ two Radiation Technologists and have a four person call crew for 24/7 care. We are a member of the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care with door to balloon times of 60 minutes. Our employees have a combined experience level of well over 200 years between the team.
