To enhance the quality of care afforded to patients, St. Alexius Heart & Vascular Center is opening a holding unit on Monday July 8. The 7-bed holding unit provides a specialized area for patients going to St. Alexius’ Interventional Radiology Labs, Cath Labs, Electrophysiology Lab, CT or ultrasound for procedures.
The holding unit will be open Monday through Friday and allows patients to be placed in an environment with specifically trained and experienced staff. After the patient is settled in the room, family members are allowed to remain in the room with the patient to relieve anxiety. This unit is conveniently located near the procedure rooms.
