Three Reasons to Choose Evangelical
During a heart attack, every minute that passes increases the risk of permanent damage to the heart muscle.
Our ambulance personnel can transmit information before they arrive, so our Emergency Department doctors will be reading the patients’ EKGs before they even see them. And with the ability to perform angioplasty in our catheterization lab right here, time to treatment can be at an absolute minimum.
Medical technology evolves rapidly and Evangelical Community Hospital keeps pace.
We upgraded the equipment that drives the accuracy and safety of coronary catheterization procedures in our existing cath lab to enable us to perform angioplasty. Plus, thanks to our expansion and renovation project we have a state-of-the-art catheterization suite with two new cath labs.
Through our partnership and recruitment, we have a highly experienced team to take care of you and your heart.
With the Geisinger Heart Institute, highly experienced cardiologists will perform the new interventional cardiology procedures. In addition to that, Evangelical has recruited an exceptional staff of technologists and nurses who bring a combined 40 years of catheterization lab experience to every procedure performed at Evangelical.
