Why is convenient access to a Heart Center important?
Heart attacks are caused by the sudden blockage of a major coronary artery. For twenty five years, clinical research has focused on ways to quickly open these blocked arteries which increases the chance of survival. When someone is suffering from a heart attack we know that every minute they don't receive care the more grave the situation becomes. In order to provide heart attack patients with rapid emergency care, a medical center must have 24/7 interventional cardiology facilities and personnel as well as cardiac surgery backup.
Across the country, programs are underway to improve the access of heart patients to interventional care by creating regional heart care centers - like Saint Alphonsus has done. That is why Saint Alphonsus is proud to open the Nampa Heart Center, conveniently located off I-84 & Garrity Blvd - so all patients have access to life-saving cardiac care.
What is a Cath Lab?
The Interventional Cardiac Cath Lab is a multidisciplinary department available 24/7 and staffed with board-certified cardiologists, registered nurses, radiology technologists and cardiovascular technologists. All clinical staff are ACLS certified and many have additional cardiovascular certifications.
The lab provides comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for patients with coronary artery disease, pulmonary hypertension, valvular heart disease and peripheral vascular disease. Saint Alphonsus is proud to provide the highest quality of care in the most state-of-the-art environment. Our expertise makes the critical difference for all of our heart patients.
