Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories
The full-service Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories at White Plains Hospital provide the community with numerous options for diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. We opened the Joan and Alan Herfort, M.D. Cardiac Catheterization Lab in 2008 and began performing emergency catheterizations in 2010. In late 2015, the Hospital proudly opened the Marie Promuto Cardiac Cath Lab with state-of-the-art equipment to best meet the demand of a growing number of patients who are in need of interventional and emergency angioplasty, device implants and other procedures. In fact, our cardiac cath labs are two of only a small handful in Westchester County authorized to perform emergency and elective angioplasty. This level of service means that patients diagnosed with coronary artery blockages do not need a transfer to another facility to receive this critically important treatment.
White Plains Hospital continues to meet the challenge of enormous growth seen over the past several years. Our “door-to-balloon time” remains consistently under one hour and is an exceptional quality measure that demonstrates the focus and talent of our staff in both the emergency room and the cath lab. Interventional Cardiology is a specialty utilizing minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat blockages in the coronary arteries or other heart-related conditions. Interventional procedures performed in the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories at White Plains Hospital include:
