Mercy — St. Anne Hospital has added another tool in the treatment of heart disease with the opening of a new hybrid cardiovascular lab.
Mercy Health — St. Anne Hospital brought more expansive heart and vascular services to western Lucas County in 2014 with the opening of a new heart program. Since then, Mercy Health has built upon the promise of providing expert, compassionate care close to home with the investment in a new lab equipped with the latest technology to provide the highest level of heart and vascular care, such as this one-of-a-kind procedure lab right here at home.
One of the unique features of the procedure room is a GPS guided imaging system that moves freely throughout the space. This GPS technology will better support the physician by providing maximum procedure flexibility while optimizing imaging technology for complex cardiac and vascular procedures This technology is the only of its kind within in the State of Ohio and within a radius of 135 miles of the Toledo community.
The new cardiovascular lab will also have multiple intracardiac mapping systems that will allow the electrophysiologists to create a real time picture of the inside of your heart to identify and treat cardiac rhythm abnormalities.
“As a leader in providing comprehensive, innovative cardiac care, this was a natural next step for Mercy Health to expand cardiac services at St. Anne,” said Kesari Sarikonda, MD, FACC, Co-Medical Director of the electrophysiology lab. “This investment in the community allows for rapid care for patients located in the west and southwest suburbs and southern Michigan.”
Additionally, the hybrid cardiovascular lab is equipped with the newest technology designed to diagnose and treat cardiac dysrhythmia, which is an abnormal heartbeat.
