Steward Health Care Invests $1M in Interventional Radiology System for Holy Family Hospital, Methuen Campus
Interventional radiologists will use the Siemens Artis Zee system for vascular related procedures
where accessing a blood vessel is required for diagnosis and intervention of
arterial or venous conditions such as a blocked artery or vein
Holy Family Hospital is pleased to announce that its parent company, Steward Health Care, has invested $1M in a state-of-the-art Siemens Zee interventional radiology system for vascular related interventions at Holy Family Hospital’s Methuen campus.
“With the acquisition of this new system, Holy Family Hospital continues its commitment to provide our patients with access to advanced technology right here in the Merrimack Valley,” said Joseph Roach, President of Holy Family Hospital in Methuen and Haverhill. “The advanced imaging capabilities of this technology allow for greater precision that increases the delivery and efficacy of patient care.”
Interventional radiologists will use the system for invasive procedures that require precision when accessing a blood vessel for diagnosis and intervention of arterial or venous conditions, such as a blocked artery or vein. This includes, for example, interventions for stent and angiographic procedures and placing vascular access and dialysis catheters. The system can also be utilized for cardiac catheterization procedures.
