Heart attacks, heart failure and other illnesses involving the heart are serious and frightening moments in the lives of individuals and the people who love them. Today, heart patients at Berkshire Health Systems are in the hands of board certified cardiologists who are recognized among the finest in their specialties. Using the most advanced diagnostic technology in the region, our cardiologists are providing award-winning care to the residents and visitors of our community.
A multi-million-dollar investment in the BHS Division of Cardiology, including the installation of the most advanced Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, has created services designed around the needs of cardiac patients to ensure that they receive the highest standards of care, no matter where they enter the healthcare system.
This means patients who arrive at our emergency rooms in the middle of the night have access to highly-qualified cardiologists and the latest in technology to assess their conditions. If necessary, they are admitted to a state-of-the-art Cardiac Unit at Berkshire Medical Center or Fairview Hospital. Patients referred to our cardiology practice for consultation and diagnosis have access to accomplished physicians, cardiac catheterization, and a full range of diagnostic tests at our Cardiovascular Center at Berkshire Medical Center and Fairview Hospital. Our program also includes cardiac rehabilitation so that patients can regain their health and stamina and resume their lives as quickly as possible.
