ETMC Cardiovascular Institute

First in the hearts of East Texas


The ETMC telemetry unit is specially designed to provide optimum care for patients with known or suspected heart disease. Each of the unit's 50 beds is equipped with a heart monitoring system to allow for constant observation of each patient's rhythm.

Mandatory training in Advanced Cardiac Life Support allows our nursing staff to detect subtle changes in patient conditions and respond quickly.

Continued educational support from the cardiovascular educator keeps our staff information on rapidly changing treatments available in coronary care today.
