Texas hospital opens new electrophysiology lab

Longview (Texas) Regional Medical Center unveiled a $4.4 million electrophysiology lab Nov. 2, the Longview News-Journal reports. 

The medical center announced the plans to expand its heart and vascular institute in April. 

The newly opened 7,000-square-foot lab will enable minimally invasive procedures to treat cardiovascular conditions such as irregular heartbeats and arrhythmias. 

The addition marks the hospital's third cardiac procedure lab, according to the report. 

Prior to the electrophysiology lab, the hospital's most recent heart institute addition was a $2.9 million cardiac catheterization lab that opened in 2018.
