NewYork-Presbyterian hospital launches interventional cardiology program, opens cath lab 

NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital in Cortlandt Manor, N.Y., launched an interventional cardiology program and opened a catheterization lab April 25. 

The interventional cardiology program will be open for emergent cases 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will have a set schedule for diagnostic and nonemergent procedures, according to a news release.

"When it comes to cardiac emergencies, time is muscle. Having a catheterization lab close to home means patients will have speedier access to expert care, and that leads to better outcomes, especially for those experiencing a life-threatening event such as a heart attack," Giora Weisz, MD, medical director of interventional cardiology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital, said in a statement.
