Diagnosis and Treatment of Heart Conditions at Mary Greeley Medical Center

At Mary Greeley Heart, our highly trained and compassionate staff offer a continuum of care that includes interventional cardiology, diagnostic services, cardiac rehabilitation, and more.

Cardiac Catheterization Lab

Mary Greeley Heart is consistently in line with the 90-minute national average for door-to-balloon time, which refers to the period of time from when a patient enters the hospital to when they visit the Cardiac Catheterization Lab (Cath Lab) to receive life-saving heart vessel balloon angioplasty.

Medical Telemetry Units

These private room units on the fourth floor of the West Patient Tower provide specialized care for those patients who need continuous heart monitoring. They may have heart concerns or conditions such as pneumonia or renal failure, or be surgical patients who need heart monitoring. Patients in this unit are connected to telemetry equipment that monitors the activity of the heart. This advanced equipment uses special leads attached under the gown, allowing patients to move around the unit. They are monitored by nurses on the unit who are certified in basic electrocardiography and advanced cardiac life support.
