Cardiac Catheterization

The Englewood Hospital and Medical Center Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory is an advanced technology suite which opened in February 1993. To insure patient comfort and the latest in cardiac care cardiac catheterization procedures are conducted in a high tech, state of the art laboratory equipped with a specialized recovery area.

An Englewood Hospital cardiac catheterization is one of the most accurate and sophisticated diagnostic tools for examining the heart. EHMC has the most advanced computerized digital cardiac catheterization imaging equipment in New Jersey and the metropolitan area. We are home to the Sensei™ Robotic Catheter system, an advanced device for use during complex interventional catheter-based procedures.

Our Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory is unique for its ability to facilitate family cardiac counseling by providing computerized image review in a counseling room environment.
The laboratory also has received recognition for its ergonomic design, and a conference facility that integrates various advanced cardiac-imaging technologies for use by Englewood Hospital cardiologists and cardiac nurses. The well-attended Englewood Hospital Cardiac Catheterization Conference is held weekly in the suite's conference center.

The use of leading technologies in this laboratory allows high-resolution cardiac imaging and imaging devices to provide rapid and accurate diagnosis in-patients with coronary, valvular or other heart disease. Same day discharge is now routine.
