Advanced Technology Ensures the Most Accurate Diagnosis and Treatment

Comprehensive Heart Treatment Denver

When it comes to your heart, every second matters. Faster treatment results in more positive outcomes and a higher quality of life after you leave the hospital. The cardiac catheterization lab (commonly known as the “cath lab”) at the Heart & Vascular Center at Rose has advanced diagnostic imaging that allows us to actually see the arteries and chambers of the heart to pinpoint the cause of your symptoms and even treat a heart attack while it occurs. In addition, we are the only Denver hospital with the cath lab this close to the Emergency Room, which means the treatment you need FAST.

The cath lab is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for multiple procedures, allowing our team to quickly move our patients from diagnosis to treatment for cardiac conditions. The innovative nonsurgical lab means our patients often recover with less pain, experience fewer side effects and can go home sooner.

The Rose Medical Center cath lab is home to some of the most advanced cardiac diagnostics and interventional treatments in the Rocky Mountain region, including:
