Leaders in Heart Health
We are one of the first community hospitals in the region to establish in-house cardiac catheterization, cardiology, arrhythmia and interventional radiology programs.
Expert Cardiovascular Care
Our catherization laboratory, or cath lab, examines how the heart is working, identifies any problems and performs procedures to open blocked arteries. MelroseWakefield Hospital is the only hospital in the area that offers emergency cardiac cath lab procedures. At the MelroseWakefield Cardiovascular Center, we offer expert heart care, including:
- emergency angioplasty and stenting to limit heart damage
- electrophysiology program that has the technology and expertise to correct and manage heart rhythm problems
- a medically-supervised cardiac rehabilitation program to improve heart health and reduce risk for cardiac patients
- access to clinical trials for breakthrough cardiac care
We are growing as a regional center of excellence, working collaboratively with Tufts Medical Center to bring more expert services to the community. We are a teaching program for Tufts Medical Center fellowship students and many of our providers hold teaching appointments at Tufts University School of Medicine.
