The Theresa Patnode Santmann Center for Cardiovascular Services

The Theresa Patnode Santmann Center for Cardiovascular Services provides cardiac diagnosis and treatment to adults. Among the comprehensive services offered are cardiac catheterization, primary angioplasty with emergent or elective placement of coronary stents for acute heart attack, open heart surgery, intra-aortic balloon insertion, pulmonary artery catheter insertion, temporary and permanent pacemaker insertion, transesophageal echocardiography, cardioversion, electrophysiology studies, ICD device placement checks and tilt table studies.




Interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists, interventional radiologists, nurses and vascular surgeons practice side by side, providing coordinated care for cardiac patients. These professionals are responsible for the continuity, development and implementation of the patient's plan of care.

Hours of Operation: 7:00 am - 7:00 pm

To provide advanced patient care, the state-of-the-art catheterization contains digital imaging equipment allowing for greater image quality during procedures. An enhanced electrophysiology service, digitalized cardiac ultrasound reporting access and a planned EKG management system, as well as an eight-bed pre- procedure and 16 bed post-procedure holding rooms, will define the continuum of care available.
