Cardiology patients evaluated and treated have experienced:

  • Heart Attacks
  • Heart Surgery
  • Angina
  • Other Heart Conditions

Our diverse group of experts works with you and your primary care provider to attend to every facet of your cardiac care and rehabilitation, including diet, exercise, medication and more. We understand how frightening heart problems can be; how even as you recover physically, a lack of confidence may continue.

Cardiology diagnostic testing and treatments provided include:

  • Echocardiogram is the use of sound waves to present a moving picture of the heart. Two Dimensional, Doppler, and Color Flow Maps are available on site both on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG) is the use of electrodes to take electrical measurements of the heartrate and rhythm.
  • Bubble study uses an IV to pass saline solution with very small bubbles through the heart’s chambers to chart blood flow in the heart.
  • Stress testing is a comparison series of tests performed at rest and while exercising. Stress testing is done on site in our cardiac lab. This includes regular and nuclear testing. The tests may be performed using pharmacologic means for those who may not be able to walk on a treadmill.
  • Event and holter monitors are portable heart monitors used to record heartbeats and identify problems.
  • Pacemaker and defibrillator follow-up – the noninvasive programming, reading and adjustment of implants.
  • Cardioversion is a procedure intended to restore a fast and-or irregular heartbeat.
  • Transesophageal echocardiogram is a probe guided into the patient’s esophagus for ultrasonic readings of the heart.

Visitor Policy Post Pandemic

Under NYS guidelines outlined by Gov. Cuomo, visitors will be allowed to return to Community Memorial Hospital under strict protocols outlined by the Hospital to protect all that enter our building and our Health Centers.

As a result, it is necessary for our Hospital and Health Centers to institute precautionary measures to ensure that our institutions are safe for our patients, their families, and friends, as well as our healthcare workers.  We have updated our visitor policy to reflect these precautionary measures. These may change at any time due to Covid-19 outbreaks.
