Health Central Services

Cardiac Testing

To keep pace with the need for interventional cardiac care, Health Central Hospital has invested in two cardiac catheterization labs to provide faster diagnosis and a higher level of patient care. Cardiac patients can be diagnosed and treated without having to leave Health Central Hospital. A cardiac catheterization may be performed following positive signs for coronary artery disease and physician recommendation.

Cardiac Care
Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. A Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and a leading cause of serious disability according to the American Heart Association. Health Central Hospital believes that prevention is as important as treatment and we can assist you in making informed lifestyle and healthcare choices to keep you well. Health Central Hospital Cardiology provides services that range from Cardiac and Pulmonary rehabilitation to a stress and sleep lab. Prevention information and overall cardiac knowledge including risk factors, warning signs and where to go are extremely important to the health of our community.
