Departments & Services

The Hospital of Central Connecticut 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.

In addition, 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.

Cardiac Catheterization Lab

Our Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory offers a catheter based approach to evaluate the heart and artery function, as well as perform angioplasty to open blocked arteries.

The Hospital of Central Connecticut’s Cardiac Rehabilitation programs include closely supervised exercise, ongoing education, risk factor modification, and counseling for people with heart disease, including angina or heart failure, and those who have had a heart attack, heart surgery or angioplasty.
