Crouse Health Invests $2.5 Million in Pediatric Cardiac Catheterization Suite Upgrade

Go Back

 

Syracuse, NY – Crouse Health has completed work on a $2.5 million renovation and upgrade of its 700 square-foot Pediatric Cardiac Catheterization suite, located in the hospital’s Diane and Bob Miron Cardiac Care Center.

The current pediatric catheterization lab was constructed in 1999and was nearing the end of its useful life. It has been replaced by a new, next generation Phillips cardiac biplane system, which features an image-guided platform designed to provide high-resolution imaging over a large field of view for interventional cardiology, pediatric cardiology and electrophysiology procedures.

The project also includes all new LED lighting and an increase in square footage in the procedure room to help expand circulation and maneuvering in the room.

Crouse is home to the region’s only pediatric catheterization program, a partnership with Syracuse-based Pediatric Cardiology Associates that provides life-saving cardiac care to more than 150 infants,young children and teens annually. 

In addition to the pediatric cath suite, the Miron Cardiac Care Center features two adult cath labs and an adult electrophysiology lab. Between the four procedure rooms, Crouse performs more than 2,500 interventional and diagnostic cardiac procedures annually.
