Merrimack Valley Heart & Vascular Center 

Comprehensive services to treat cardiovascular disease and support recovery

Our services diagnose and treat complex cardiovascular diseases, and help patients recover from cardiac events. These services include:

  • Cardioversion
  • Coronary angiography
  • Electrocardiogram
  • Non-invasive testing for vascular disease
  • Nuclear imaging
  • Pacemaker and defibrillator insertions
  • Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)
  • Pericardiocentesis
  • Thrombolytic therapy for acute arterial or venous thrombosis
  • Stress testing
  • TTE (Transthoracic Echocardiogram)
  • TEE (Transesophageal Echocardiogram)

 

The most advanced cardiovascular technology in the Merrimack Valley

Our 6,000 square foot catheterization suite provides a comfortable and convenient environment in which to receive care. It offers dedicated patient recovery rooms in the suite, a dedicated waiting room is available for those who accompany patients, and parking is available just outside the suite.

The centerpiece of our catheterization suite is the impressive Siemens C-arm technology that interventional cardiologists use to treat cardiovascular disease and save lives. (Seen below)

Using this technology our physicians can:

  • See the structure and performance of your moving heart
  • Capture crystal clear, precise images for diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease
  • Perform coronary angiography and percutaneous coronary interventions; often a lifesaving measure, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Visualize coronary arteries to place stents that can prevent blockages
  • Measure blood pressure throughout the heart that can lead to treatments to prevent lung or heart disease 
  • As cardiac catheterization procedures are conducted, data flows between imaging, the catheterization suite, reading room, and those who will provide follow up care.

These advances synchronize the team, support cardiologists, improve quality of care and increase patient safety.  

Our team approach to care includes:

  • Specially trained RNs experienced in critical care, cardiac assessment, education and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
  • Certified radiologic technologists
