Heart and vascular procedures
We offer a full range of cardiovascular treatments for many heart and vascular conditions. Using diagnostic tools, such as heart catheterizations, electrocardiograms (EKG), echocardiograms (ECHO), exercise stress tests and nuclear studies, our cardiac experts search for signs of heart and blood vessel disease.
When further procedures are required, you can be confident our facility has the technology, staff and experience to provide comprehensive care. Together, our cardiologists, cardiovascular nurses, radiology technologists and nuclear technologists perform more than 1,100 cardiac catheterizations each year, as well as other advanced surgeries.
Emergency cardiovascular care
Our cardiac catheterization lab (cath lab) is prepared 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to respond immediately to cardiac emergencies, such as a heart attack. Cardiologists and nurses certified in advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) provide rapid response care for patients experiencing heart problems.
Patients experiencing a heart attack are taken to the cath lab for immediate intervention where our heart experts insert a medical balloon to clear the blockage. Our door-to-balloon average time is 65 minutes, well below the national average of 90 minutes.
A stroke occurs when blood flow is cut off in the brain. Just like a heart attack, rapid treatment is critical to restore blood flow and prevent long-term damage and/or death. Our emergency room physicians, including cardiovascular specialists and neurologists, are prepared to quickly and effectively treat stroke patients in Waycross.
After a cardiovascular diagnosis, cardiac event or heart surgery, patients often require rehabilitation to rebuild their heart’s strength and endurance. Memorial Satilla Health’s cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation program offers expert therapists who create a personalized therapy regime for each cardiac rehab patient.
