CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs has completed a six-month, $2-million expansion to the hospital’s Cath Lab. The renovation project included state of the art equipment, hybrid interventional catheterization lab resources, 50% increased capacity to serve patients and upgraded hemodynamic systems in order to offer the most advanced technology for the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease.

“Heart disease remains a significant issue in Southwest Arkansas, claiming both lives and quality of life for many in our community,” said CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs President Dr. Douglas Ross. “This expansion brings two state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization laboratories to the region and allows cardiologists to diagnose potential blockages and save more lives.”

The digital cardiac catheterization labs at CHI St. Vincent Hot Springs allow doctors to perform minimally invasive procedures and other tests to address cardiovascular disease. That includes specialized imaging equipment that allows cardiologists to monitor blood flow to and from the heart. The expanded resources offer more tools for CHI St. Vincent Heart Institute cardiologists and heart surgeons in Hot Springs to provide exceptional, compassionate care for patients across Southwest Arkansas.
