Cardiac Catheterization

We know our cath lab saves lives. That's why we have opened a second cathlab... to expand our capability to provide the best in lifesaving cardiology services.

Imaging technology has changed - for the better.  That's why the CGH Cardiac Catheterization Lab uses the most advanced vascular diagnostic tool available. Exceptionally detailed images enable physicians to see and work in even the smallest vessels, unveiling coronary and cerebral blockages, enhancing cardiac interventions - and often preventing surgery. Life-saving solutions span from stent and angioplasty procedures to pacemaker implanting, all requiring minimal recovery time.

Our board-certified cardiologists are equipped with new capabilities.
