BANGOR – The cardiovascular team at Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center launched a project in March for which they are very grateful: the construction of a new cardiac catheterization laboratory. This project was made possible by an anonymous donation of $ 2.5 million. This renovation increases the capacity and equips the space to meet the growing needs in cardiology in our region.
The cardiology team welcomed its first patient on November 16, just a few months after the start of the project. The new catheterization lab will see up to six patients per day for diagnostic and stenting procedures.
The new space improves access and advances image quality and technology, providing physicians with first-class tools for diagnosing heart disease. Jennifer Modery, BS, RT (R), Manager, Northern Light Interventional Services, says, “This donation is an incredible gift for our community. We can now provide patients with the latest cardiac diagnostic technology close to home. We couldn’t be happier with this generous contribution!
The teams at the Medical Center are grateful to all who made this possible, as well as to the anonymous donor. This addition will help Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center continue to meet the health needs of the community in the future.
