Our newly renovated and modernized Cardiac Catheterization Suite on the 4th floor of the Hamblet Building allows us to treat a variety of complex heart conditions without the need for surgery. We've installed advanced imaging technology that gives our cardiac team the clearest images possible to pinpoint the exact location of arterial blockages. Our new hemodynamic information management system displays all vital signs during a procedure. It allows staff to monitor a patient's status at one workstation, record their observations and store data for fast retrieval.

At the same time, Lawrence General's cardiologists have joined forces with their peers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston to significantly enhance cardiac catheterization, emergency angioplasty and other cardiac services in the Merrimack Valley.

Interventional cardiologists from Lawrence General and the world-renowned CardioVascular Institute at BIDMC are collaborating to provide emergency angioplasty services for heart attack patients. They are supported by a highly experienced catheterization team of nurses and technologists.

If you need more than monitoring or angioplasty to treat an ailing heart, you'll benefit from expert care provided by the CardioVascular Institute team in Boston. If you require a coronary by-pass procedure, for example, you have the option of having surgery done at Beth Israel Deaconess.

The CardioVascular Institute at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, provides expert cardiovascular medicine, cardiac surgery and vascular surgery. Its staff of 600 delivers outstanding outcomes, easy access and better service, earning BIDMC recognition from U.S. News & World Report as one of the best 100 hospitals for heart care and surgery. Community-based cardiologists and vascular surgeons at 28 convenient offices in Massachusetts and New Hampshire provide a wide range of services and, when advanced care is needed, refer patients to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
