Wilson County Welcomes Cath Lab

University Medical Center has taken another major step in becoming one of middle Tennessee’s finest and most comprehensive community hospitals with the recent ground breaking of a cutting-edge cardiac catheterization or “cath” lab.  This will be in addition to the hospital’s current diagnostic capabilities and allow patients’ access to the most minimally invasive techniques available to treat cardiovascular disease.  The hospital’s board members and outstanding Cardiologists have been a vital part of this ground breaking.  A ribbon cutting ceremony is anticipated upon the completion of this project in a few short months.

“This new cardiac “cath” lab is a great asset to the community members of Wilson County.  We have phenomenal Cardiologists on staff here at University Medical Center, representing the best of what Nashville has to offer, and the new cath lab will enhance our physicians’ ability to treat advanced cardiovascular disease closer to home,” said Matt Caldwell, CEO of University Medical Center“This is truly a testament of what a community-based hospital can achieve when it commits to delivering the highest quality care.”

This new lab will feature the latest generation of cardiovascular technology including the Phillips FD20 Flat Pannel digital imaging x-ray system.  This technology provides sharper images and the ability to better visualize a patient’s anatomy during a complex procedure. 

Time is muscle.  Every second counts when it comes to a heart attack.  The quicker a physician can restore vital blood flow through all of the heart’s arteries, the less damage to the heart muscle should be expected.  To restore this blood flow, cardiologists work in a cardiac catheterization lab using a stent or a balloon to open the artery.

The gold standard for “door to balloon time” set by the American Heart Association is 90 minutes.  University Medical Center is committed to outperforming this standard of care. 

 

For more information about the cardiac catheterization lab at University Medical Center, call 615-453-4500.
