When Every Second Counts,
Over 30 years ago, Saint Agnes Hospital set the international gold standard with the first chest pain emergency room in the world. Our pioneering in this field has led to 725 similar centers worldwide that now use our hospital’s approach as their model.
Our cardiovascular team is among the best in Maryland at rapidly treating cardiac and vascular emergencies as well as more subtle diseases that develop over time such as arteriosclerosis, coronary heart disease, varicose veins and other venous diseases. Most importantly, all of our physicians are deeply committed to a multidisciplinary approach to determine the most effective treatment for each individual patient.
THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY
Because cardiac disease and vascular disease often go hand in hand, Saint Agnes combines both fields of medicine into one comprehensive Cardiovascular Institute. As a result, we offer cardiovascular care that uses the latest technology to accurately diagnose disease in both emergency and exploratory situations.
Our newly renovated facilities include the new $2 million Cardiac Catheterization Lab, the $3 million Vascular Lab and our innovative Vascular operating room. This cutting-edge technology, combined with our top cardiologists and vascular surgeons, make Saint Agnes a leader in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
