The RVH Cardiac Catheterization Lab opens for business Tuesday Jan. 9

A big day for RVH. The advanced cardiac unit will see its first patient Tuesday morning.

The unit’s manager Mike Yrcha says to begin with, the cardiac cath lab will carry out diagnostic angiograms on patients who are stable, but eventually the unit will be treating critically ill patients who are having heart attacks.

The cath lab is being funded in part, by DOCK listeners through the Radio for Cardiology campaign.
