Franciscan St. Margaret Health-Dyer celebrated the opening of its newly renovated Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory during a blessing and dedication program May 2.
The $1.7 million project brings new, state-of-the-art Philips imaging equipment that is capable of 3D imaging and provides high-definition imaging and easy integration with CT, MRI and ultrasound images. These allow the medical team to view images with unprecedented clarity.
Cardiologist Michael Nicholas, DO, a longtime hospital medical staff member, said, “We look forward to the future with enthusiasm. It is fantastic that we are able to offer the best technology available to provide the best care for our patients.”
Tom Gryzbek, hospital president, called the renovation an expression of Franciscan St. Margaret Health’s ongoing commitment to providing the best care for the patients, “who we are privileged to serve, who come to us 24/7, with sometimes life-threatening cardiac issues and who rely on us for our expertise, our technology, our care and our compassion.”
