Cardiovascular care

In 1993, the hospital expanded and consolidated its cardiac services with the opening of the ETMC Cardiovascular Institute, the first self-contained cardiac center in East Texas. This self-contained, state-of-the-art facility is a beautiful 27,000-square-foot addition, designed by cardiac physicians and equipped with the latest in technology, including two catheterization laboratories, two cardiac surgery suites, a dedicated electrophysiology lab and a cardiovascular intensive care unit.
