Cardiology

Trinitas maintains a full-service cardiac facility as well as facilities for the intensive nursing care of patients with cardiac disease. These include a cardiac care unit, intermediate coronary care unit, cardiac catheterization lab, non-invasive cardiology services, full-service emergency department, and cardiac rehabilitation services.

Recently, Trinitas Regional Medical Center began providing elective angioplasty procedures following approval by the New Jersey Commissioner of Health & Senior Services. Trinitas is one of nine New Jersey hospitals participating in the Johns Hopkins Atlantic C-PORT study that will determine the effectiveness of elective angioplasty procedures in hospitals without cardiac surgery.

The spacious and modern Diagnostic Center provides a convenient, all-in-one facility for inpatient and outpatient testing including echocardiograms, nuclear stress testing, electrocardiograms, electroencephlagrams, holter monitoring, pacemaker evaluations, vascular studies, muga scans and pulmonary function tests.

Located near the main lobby, the Diagnostic Center can be accessed easily by outpatients. Inpatients can enter the Center directly from an elevator located within the facility.

The multi-state, three-year study is assessing the safety, quality and cost of elective angioplasty in hospitals that offer emergency angioplasty without onsite cardiac surgery backup. Eight other New Jersey hospitals are participating in the study.
