Cath Lab/Elective Angioplasty

Astria Regional Medical Center offers the region’s only cardiac cath lab with open-heart surgery. Consistently ranked as a top cardiac care hospital, Astria Regional Medical Center performs all cardiac services with cutting edge technology. On average, cardiac patients entering the ER receive angioplasty within 60 minutes, well under the recommended time of 90 minutes. As the “door to balloon time” increases, so does the risk of irreparable damage to the heart.

Astria Regional Medical Center sees a high volume of cardiac patients, meaning that the staff is extremely well trained and accustomed to doing complicated cardiac procedures on a regular basis. Our cardiac staff has a combined average experience of more than 16 years.
Astria Regional Medical Center has been nationally recognized as a premier heart hospital through numerous awards and accreditations. Awards include a Thomson Reuters Top 100 Cardiac Hospital, Blue Cross Blue Shield Blue Center of Distinction for Cardiac Care, multiple Bronze, Silver, and Gold Achievement Awards from the American Heart Association, and an American College of Cardiology Accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI. Because we're dedicated to patient satisfaction, we consider a cath lab satisfaction rate of 99% among our most important achievements.
As the only hospital in the region capable of elective angioplasties and open heart surgery, we're proud that patients feel confident choosing Astria Regional Medical Center as their heart hospital, and doctors prefer the technology and experience of the facility and staff.
