We serve patients from across the suburbs of Philadelphia, who have various
heart conditions and require specialized care. We hope this section of
our website will provide you with the information you need as you prepare
for the care you or a loved one will be receiving from our Cardiology
Services program at Roxborough Memorial Hospital.
We treat patients with heart failure, or congestive heart failure (CHF),
by taking a diverse approach that emphasizes lifestyle changes along with
advanced treatments and management of contributing conditions such as
diabetes and hypertension.
We offer a number of various programs and services, but most of the time
your care journey will begin with heart tests. These tests help us understand
your condition and explain why you are experiencing symptoms such as shortness
of breath or chest pain. Once we have been able to diagnose your condition,
we offer a number of interventions, as well as typical surgical procedures
to help improve your quality of life.
Cardiac Diagnostic Testing
Heart tests are the many different tools that we use to figure out what
might be causing your symptoms. The nature of your symptoms will also
help us determine which tests to run. Heart tests are done in the Cardiology
Department located on the third floor at Roxborough Memorial Hospital.
Roxborough Memorial Hospital Cardiac Diagnostic Testing may include:
- Echo Laboratory
- EKG Laboratory
- Pacemaker Evaluation
- Holter Monitors
- Nuclear Medicine as well as Non Nuclear Stress Testing
Heart failure is a lifelong condition that requires long-term care. Our
goal is to effectively manage your symptoms and dramatically reduce the
rate of hospitalization and readmission associated with your disease.
