St. Catherine Opens Heart Center

Garden City, KS

St. Catherine Hospital recently opened The Heart Center at St. Catherine Hospital. The center offers services that were previously unavailable in the area, including cardiac catheterization, angioplasty, stent placement, echocardiograms, pacemakers and treatment of various cardiac diseases. Prior to opening The Heart Center, St. Catherine sent five to seven patients a week to Kansas Heart Hospital, Wichita, KS, for treatment. St. Catherine partnered with Cardiovascular Consultants of Kansas, the physician group that owns and operates Kansas Heart Hospital, to open The Heart Center at St. Catherine Hospital.
