Delnor’s Cardiac Catheterization Lab is a premier facility in the far west suburbs. Utilizing the Philips Integris Allura Imaging System with Dynamic Flat Detector technology, physicians are able to evaluate and treat critical cardiac blockages faster and more accurately while exposing patients to less radiation. Delnor was one of the first hospitals in the entire Northern Illinois region, including Chicago, to have this technology. It is a quantum improvement in the cardiac care being offered to area patients.
But advanced technology isn’t all that distinguishes the Delnor Cath Lab from others. Delnor cath patients benefit from a full service facility prepared to stabilize and care for the most critical cardiac patients as well as routinely scheduled patients. The comprehensive design of the facility allows patients' pre-testing, procedure and recovery to be completed all in the same area providing the ultimate continuity of care and a high degree of comfort with their surroundings as well as the staff caring for them.
Our Cath Lab is adjacent to our state-of-the-art Emergency Department. When every second is at stake, being able to take a patient basically around the corner to undergo their procedure can make a big difference in a patient's outcome. Only about 20 percent of all U.S. hospitals have a cath lab available to their patients and even fewer have the cath lab built so closely to the emergency department.
Dedicated reserved parking spaces for cardiac patients are located just steps away from the north entrance of the hospital providing patients easy access for cardiac services.
