According to Hudson Regional Hospital, the state’s most innovative cardiac catheterization laboratory is now open in North Jersey.
HRH was joined by local officials, physicians and community members to mark the debut of its 10,000-square-foot cardiac catheterization lab June 1. According to the Secaucus health care provider, the space bolsters cardiac services in the local community and larger region, underscoring HRH’s commitment to keeping up with the latest advancements and developments in the medical field.
The new suite includes: two Siemens biplanes, a seven-bed recovery area, and a waiting room for patient’s families and friends.
From the space, which aims to enhance the overall patient experience, HRH said its team of cardiovascular experts can perform a variety of minimally invasive procedures, allowing for early diagnoses, treatments and potentially life-saving procedures.
According to Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli, the new lab will have a “significant impact on the community, allowing patients to receive this type of care closer to home.”
“Hudson Regional Hospital’s continuous investments are unceasingly providing the best health care available to our community,” he said.
Since taking over in 2018, HRH said it has invested $50 million in capital improvements to the facility, located at 55 Meadowlands Parkway, to ensure groundbreaking treatments are available. In 2020, it launched the Institute for Robotic Surgery at the hospital. Earlier this year, HRH celebrated North Hudson Community Action Corp.’s opening of its 10th office in New Jersey at the facility – marking its first Federally Qualified Health Center to be located in a hospital.
“It has been our mission from the beginning of our tenure in Secaucus to provide our physicians with well-equipped, technologically advanced, comfortable work environments for practice areas that we are constantly upgrading, as well as an extensive array of educational and mentoring opportunities,” said Yan Moshe, chairman of the board for Hudson Regional Hospital. “We’ve created an atmosphere that is comfortable for our patients and physicians.”
Of its latest approach to innovating services, Andrew Erdman, director of critical care and cardiovascular lab, said the “new Cardiovascular Lab offers physicians the highest level of imaging technology available in order to treat complex coronary and vascular disease states found in our patient population.”
“The implementation of this new technology will support early diagnosis of coronary disease as well as provide for treatment of peripheral vascular disease, neuro intervention (acute stroke), and much more,” added Dr. Nizar Kifaieh, president and CEO of Hudson Regional Hospital. “This investment will allow us to treat patients’ heart conditions with minimally invasive procedures, resulting in shorter and easier recovery periods.”
