cardiovascular cath lab
Our cardiovascular specialists can quickly diagnose and treat your heart, catching problems early on, stabilizing you and setting you on a heart-healthy path for life. If you don’t have a cardiac care specialist or cardiac surgeon, we can put you in touch with one of our experts. He or she will work with you to find out what’s going on and map out a heart treatment plan that you understand and support.

We know how to take what’s broken and fix it.

Cardiac Catheterization Labs

In 1977, Valley Baptist opened its first cardiac-cath lab, where angioplasty, and stent-insertion procedures take place. That was followed by the Rio Grande Valley’s first open-heart surgical suite, and a second cath lab — the only Electrophysiology lab for patients with arrhythmia.
