Angiography Suite and Coronary Care Unit

Our highly skilled nursing staff work in partnership with cardiologists to ensure that all patients receive the highest possible standard of care.
The Coronary Care unit has been designed to provide highly specialised care to patients with acute cardiac illnesses or those who have had a procedure performed in the angiography suite. We are also equipped with telemetry monitoring ensuring patients peace of mind at all times.
The consultant cardiologists manage all coronary care patients, supported by experienced medical practitioners who are available 24/7, which ensures that each patient receives immediate attention should the need arise.
