The new Heart Center has an open-heart surgery suite for bypass surgery and other heart procedures. All of the beds are capable of cardiac monitoring from the intensive care unit. The new Center also offers operating suites, digital X-ray imaging system and two cardiac catheterization labs, which are used to detect arterial blockages that could cause a heart attack. Our Cardiac Surgical Team is well-trained and experienced in all aspects of cardiac and thoracic surgery.

A broad range of cardiac surgical services is available 24 hours a day. Our cardiac-surgery team includes not only experienced surgeons, but also a highly trained clinical staff to deliver a treatment plan designed specifically for each individual patient.

Cardiac Catheterization

Our new Cardiac Catheterization Labs are available 24/7 and feature technologically advanced equipment and therapies for blocked arteries, aneurysms, and clots, as well as procedures in treating heart rhythm disorders, implantable cardiac defibrillators, and pacemakers. The Cardiac Echo Lab is staffed by professionals certified in the use of Echo and Vascular Technologies.

Desert Valley Cardiac cath lab is pleased to announce our new state of the art GE Innova Imaging System.

The Innova IGS angiography system is one of the most effective and comfortable for the patients devices in modern cardiac medicine. It is used for diagnostics, as well as intervention, of diseases of capillary tubes, veins, vessels, and arteries.

The major benefits of this imaging system include, but not limited to: high informativeness of the system; possibility to perform diagnostics of diseases with no need for surgical intervention; the convenience of use, practicality, and multifunctionality; the procedure is performed faster; elimination of high radiation exposure; a clearer and high definition picture with good image quality. The jewel of this system is the ability to do a 3D spin of the x-ray tube around the patient. This allows a complete picture of patient’s anatomy in one pass. Part of the catheterization suite includes the ability to reconstruct images into a 3D representation of the patient’s anatomy.

The new room and state-of-the-art equipment will allow us to better serve our community.
