Other Cardiac Care Locations

Cardiac Cath Lab

The Cardiac Catheterization Lab at CMC-NorthEast in Concord, NC, provides diagnostic and therapeutic treatment for improving cardiac functional capacity and quality of life for patients of the Charles A. Cannon Heart Center. Affiliated with Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute, the lab provides pre, intra and post procedural patient assessments to educate each patient regarding their site care, medications, and follow-up care. Staff perform procedures such as treatment and revascularization for coronary artery, peripheral artery and valvular diseases, restoration of conduction for optimal cardiac rhythm, and administration of therapies to improve those patients diagnosed with cardiomyopathy.

Cardiovascular Operating Room

The Cardiovascular Operating Room (CVOR) is a regionally recognized division of both the Charles A. Cannon Heart Center and CMC-NorthEast's Surgical Services. Performing over 300 open heart surgeries and another 100 additional procedures each year, the Cardiovascular Operating Room medical staff are highly trained professionals, catering to the needs of each patient's condition. Providing safe preoperative care to cardiovascular and valvular patients, cardiovascular surgeons perform coronary artery bypass grafting, aortic valve replacement and metal valve replacement, and replacement of the thoracic aortal. The Cardiovascular Operating Room is available 24 hours a day with doctors on-call at all times.

Cardiovascular Recovery Unit

The Cardiovascular Recovery Unit (CVRU) is a specialized care unit in which patients are monitored around the clock for the first 24 hours post-operative. Compassionate nurses are at each patient's bedside continually and attend to each patient's family during the recovery process. Limiting exposure and minimizing the infectious process during the first 24 hours following surgery, nurses inform families regarding the patient's condition and care instructions. The Cardiovascular Recovery Unit is equipped to continuously monitor patients, intervene in medical emergencies and aid patients in beginning a healthy recovery. The average length of stay in the Cardiovascular Recovery Unit is usually less than 24 hours and care is available 365 days a year.
