New Penn State Health lab to treat rhythm disturbances

Penn State Health St. Joseph Medical Center in Berks County, Pa., announced a new electrophysiology laboratory opened Dec. 7 to treat patients with cardiac rhythm disturbances. 

"We have been leaders in this community around the use of new technologies to improve the quality of life for patients with chronic or potentially dangerous heart rhythm problems,” Chris Rogers, MD, cardiac electrophysiologist at Penn State Health Medical Group – Berks Cardiology said in a release. "Our intent is to continually improve our capabilities to ensure that we can bring our patients the widest range of specialized treatments close to home."

The new lab is equipped with "state-of-the-art" technology to help restore normal heart rhythm, including new imaging technology that will enable cardiac electrophysiologists to treat patients with less radiation. 

The expansion is the most recent part of a five-phase, $13.5 million project to reconfigure existing cardiac catheterization labs at the center.
