The Hospital of Central Connecticut (HOCC) is able to manage complex heart and vascular cases in its hybrid procedure room, a state-of-the-art suite that allows vascular surgeons, electrophysiologists and invasive cardiologists to perform procedures guided by real-time images. The multidisciplinary team at HOCC treats patients who have a wide range of circulatory (vascular) issues and irregular heart rhythms in this advanced environment.

HOCC is part of the Hartford HealthCare Heart & Vascular Institute, which provides the coordinated, evidence-based care that you need to get back on your feet again.

The HOCC care team includes board-certified cardiologists, medical and surgical intensivists (doctors who specialize in intensive care), cardiac care nurses, respiratory therapists, cardiac rehabilitation specialists, nutritionists and other specially trained staff members. These units work closely with other departments, including echocardiography, nuclear cardiology and the cardiac catheterization lab. The community has access to an outpatient Heart Failure Program and Infusion Center for Heart Failure, certified by JCAHO, an independent, not-for-profit organization, that recognizes high quality performance standards with a special certification. As part of the cardiac rehabilitation program, a highly specialized peripheral vascular disease exercise program is offered. 

The Hospital of Central Connecticut offers the latest cardiac MRI technology, which allows physicians to see in great detail the structure and function of the heart, including scarring or inflammation in the heart noninvasively.

Additionally, the hospital includes telemetry units staffed by board-certified cardiologists and specially trained nurses and technicians. Telemetry allows caregivers to simultaneously monitor the hearts of multiple patients at once. Blood-oxygen level, blood pressure and heart rates and rhythms are continuously measured and data relayed to computers. Information is continually monitored, allowing staff to react quickly to changes in a patient’s condition.

The Hospital of Central Connecticut's Limb Preservation Program provides specific treatment plans for every patient. The program offers early intervention to help you maintain as much mobility and function in your daily activity as possible, avoiding amputation and promoting health to prevent future issues.
