McCain Heart Center opens at Lenoir Memorial
Lenoir Memorial continues to strive to meet community needs in the area of cardiac care. The addition of the Percutaneous Coronary Intervention program (PCI) in 2013 has proven to be a tremendous asset to the community and the number of patients accessing cardiac catheterization services has far surpassed predictions. The advancements enjoyed in 2013 were expanded in 2015 into an entirely new cardiac care area located in the center of the hospital and easily accessible through the Day Surgery Center entrance. “The decision to enlarge and equip the hospital’s physical plant, in order to provide expanded services, was successful beyond our projections,” said Gary Black, president and CEO. “The increased number of patients led to a greater demand for patient space, a unit designed for prep as well as postprocedural recovery.” Through the generosity of Pat and Bob McCain, the McCain Heart Center will be introduced to the community in February in celebration of American Heart month. The addition of the McCain Heart Center will allow the hospital to continue to offer a full range of diagnostic and monitoring equipment in a beautifully updated heart center created specifically for our patients’ best care. With these additions, our community can choose to have advanced cardiac care without the inconvenience of traveling out of town. At Lenoir Memorial, we are confident in our ability to provide exceptional cardiac care for our patients.
