Cardiac Catheterization Lab

Recently, UH Parma Medical Center opened a $900,000 state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization lab. The upgrade included new technology, new software, updated control rooms and dictation/work rooms to support minimally invasive tests and procedures to diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease.

Heart Surgery Services

In July 2021, the existing strong cardiology program at UH Parma Medical Center was reinvigorated by the top-rated cardiac surgery team of UH Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute. This expansion of cardiac services allows patients to remain in their community for specialized care rather than traveling to UH Cleveland Medical Center for advanced procedures.

A core team of four highly skilled surgeons from UH Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute perform advanced coronary artery bypass graft surgery, aortic and mitral valve surgery, and minimally invasive surgery, among other procedures at UH Parma Medical Center. They perform these procedures in specially designed operating rooms that are part of the $27.5 million renovation of the Surgical Services Department.

Outpatient Heart Clinics

UH Parma’s program features three outpatient clinics for heart patients:

  • Cardiac Surgical Disease Clinic, which treats conditions such as atrial fibrillation
  • Advanced Heart Failure Clinic
  • Cardiac Device Clinic

The Advanced Heart Failure Clinic treats patients with severely reduced ejection fraction, refractory heart failure, or those struggling with recurrent admissions for heart failure.

The Cardiac Device Clinic team interprets new implants and performs follow-up checks both in person and remotely on pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and CRT-D devices for cardiac resynchronization therapy. A new documentation system called Paceart can track patients’ medical devices to notify them when they should be upgraded or replaced, and whether they would benefit from cardiac ablation or need referral for heart failure treatment.
