Heart Month Events: February 2015
Listen to Your Heart
February is American Heart Month and it is a good time to remind those you care about how much they really mean to you. At the WakeMed Heart Center, we would like to take this opportunity to do the same. To the patients and families we have cared for over the past 50+ years, please accept our heartfelt appreciation.
The most effective way we know to show how much we care is by making sure each and every patient has access to the best - the best cardiovascular specialists, nurses, physicians, mid-level providers, technology, and care. This is why we are proud to be the only hospital in Wake County to feature a:
- 100% credentialing rate for all cardiovascular specialists. This means all cath lab staff are required to be Registered Cardiovascular Invasive Specialists.
- 24/7 staffed catheterization lab, because heart attacks don't only happen between 9 am and 5 pm, Monday through Friday.
- A Heart Center with all services for heart patients under one roof, including nine cardiac catheterization labs and two electrophysiology labs.
- Heart Center Inn with 38 rooms specifically designed for heart patients' families, allowing loved ones to stay close day and night.
Additionally, WakeMed Chest Pain Centers at Raleigh Campus and Cary Hospital are nationally accredited by the Society of Chest Pain Centers.
Whether it's having a cardiac team ready and waiting for you in a time of emergency or helping you regain strength with dedicated cardiac rehab program, rest assured that the WakeMed Heart Center team is there for you whenever and wherever you need us.
We hope you will join us at these events in celebration of American Heart Month.
