Your Heart Is In the Right Place
Our state-of-the-art Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory offers a broad spectrum of diagnostic and interventional procedures that formerly required a trip to Eugene or Portland. Working in a sterile room, a cardiologist inserts a thin, flexible tube into the patient’s artery. Working through this tube and employing radiologic imaging, the team can explore the patient’s heart and circulatory system. This minimally invasive procedure allows the team to diagnose a variety of cardiovascular problems, many of which can be fixed right there in the cath lab.
The presence of this advanced facility at Bay Area Hospital means cardiac patients can receive the diagnostic and interventional care they need without leaving their community. This advanced care, close to home, is a huge step forward for convenient, top-quality healthcare right here on the South Coast.
