|As a full service referral center for advanced heart disease, Johnston Memorial Hospital’s interventional cardiology program offers highly trained cardiologists and staff and a lab fully equipped to diagnose and treat patients for urgent heart problems 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
The expanded cardiac services for both inpatients and outpatients include non-surgical cardiac procedures such as diagnostic heart catheterization, pacemaker placement and electrophysiology studies. Private holding rooms offer patient comfort and convenience.
For heart attack patients, cardiac services include percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) which is a procedure that opens blocked arteries and restores blood flow to the heart – a treatment that minimizes damage to the heart and can make the difference in life and death.
