State-of-the-Art Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory Opens at NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital

Staffed by Columbia University Medical Center physicians, the facility offers a variety of minimally invasive, potentially lifesaving procedures for heart patients
 
NewYork-Presbyterian is opening a new cardiac catheterization laboratory at NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville. Offering a wide array of advanced cardiac procedures, the cutting-edge facility is the latest addition to NewYork-Presbyterian’s world-class heart program, ranked No. 3 in the country and No. 1 in New York State, according to U.S. News and World Report. Procedures in the lab are expected to begin the first week of May. 

 “The main purpose of our new cardiac catheterization lab is to perform safe, effective procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases,” said Dr. Mark Apfelbaum, director of the NewYork-Presbyterian Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital and associate professor of medicine at Columbia University Medical Center. “Patients will benefit from high-quality, nationally renowned cardiologists performing these procedures, which are essential for patients who require tertiary care.”

Staffed by interventional cardiologists and electrophysiologists of ColumbiaDoctors, the faculty practice of Columbia University Medical Center, the lab will offer a variety of minimally invasive procedures such as coronary stenting, heart biopsy, and pacemaker implantation and will be one of the few centers in Westchester licensed to perform emergency cardiac angioplasty for patients having a heart attack. 

The lab will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is conveniently located near the hospital’s emergency room, which can save precious minutes in transit for patients experiencing a heart attack. In addition to the emergency and diagnostic procedures offered, patients can also undergo routine testing via angiograms and cardiac imaging. In an angiogram, doctors take a series of X-rays of the heart to search for narrowing and blockages. Similarly, cardiac imaging allows doctors to screen for narrowing arteries via a specially designed catheter with ultrasound tips. Patients who may require more advanced cardiac care will have easy access to surgeons at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center.

“This facility is an outstanding addition at NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital,” said Ed Dinan, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital. “By teaming with NewYork-Presbyterian and Columbia, we’re providing patients in Bronxville and Westchester access to the highest quality of cardiac care right in their backyard.”

Nutrition Tip of the Week - Fueling Up On The Go 
By Katie Campbell RD, CDN 

Physical activities often require eating away from home. Whether you are traveling with a sports team, going straight from school or work to practice, or simply looking to catch a good workout while on vacation, make sure your body has the fuel it needs.

Keep energized by packing a snack. Choose foods with carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats. If packing food isn’t an option, find a restaurant that provides high-performance food options, containing high amounts of nutrients and protein. Also, don't forget to keep hydrated by drinking enough fluids. Get the nutrients and hydration you need for the activities ahead.

People from Westchester and the Bronx came out for Lawrence Hospital Center's Stroke Awareness Day. They met clinicians, got questions answered and learned how to reduce their risk for stroke. They also got free blood pressure and cholesterol screenings, and participated in a Lunch and Learn program.

I used to come here and have very pleasant experiences but since it became NYP it has been absolutely horrific and overcrowded. The last time I came with a friend and he ended up leaving because of the wait. Tonight I came for myself and after 2.5 hours of waiting I asked if they had an ETA on when I might be seen. She responded that it would be about 4 hours longer. I saw numerous people leave the waiting room but I only saw one person leave the ER the whole time I was there. I read on numerous websites that if you have abdominal pain you should go to a hospital immediately. What's the point of going immediately for something possibly life threatening if they are going to dump you in the waiting room? I was also informed that I would receive a bill for triage. Wow. You leave me there for 2.5 hours and want me to pay for the privilege of getting my temperature taken and explaining to the nurse that Sunday to Tuesday is not 4 days. Twice.

No continuity of care. The right hand never knows what the left hand is doing. They did NOTHING to facilitate a positive experience for my grandmother's care. She suffered unnecessarily because they couldn't get through their own red tape. This hospital is a joke.

Despite a few hard working staff members, this hospital is ill equipped for critical care. It's fine for minor incidents, tests and voluntary procedures as long as the patient has a sharp health care proxy to clarify any specific needs and to monitor any mistakes. They are particularly poor with eldercare. The doctors communicate abominably both with the patients and each other. Again that is why the more complex the case the worse this hospital. The administrative staff is hit or miss as is the nursing staff but this is typical of any hospital. However there were a few nurses lacking basic critical skills and experience such as catheterization, blood drawing and administering an IV not to mention the rough physical treatment. In an emergency, Do not take an elderly or critically ill patient to this hospital.

This hospital is a lazy hospital with very bad security. My father was very sick one day, So when he got to the hospital, he was cry for help on the floor on his knees. Then I also visited my father one day when he finally got help. He had to get sugary that day. He had sugary and was in recovery and I didn't get any notification about him being in recovery. So I was in the hospital hoping my father was ok 6 HOURS STRAIGHT. Now it has been 4 days after he had sugary, still not feeling better at all, but they want him out of the hospital now. He is barley talking or moving. But you want him to go home?!?!?! Who ever is reading this should follow and comprehend with everything that is being said in this text. If you go to this hospital, you will wish you never did. ( BTW: I was born in this hospital 13 years ago, the disappointment I have for this hospital in unbelievable) (P.S.- me being 13 and being able to just walk by the security guard without saying a word should really say something)

My husband and I have been waiting in the emergency room for over 3 hours and have not been called in to see a doctor. The waiting are is so packed with sick people AND SICK CHILDREN. It is unbelievable that anyone has to Wait this long to be seen. We come all the way here expecting to be seen faster than the packed emergency rooms in the city. I'm very disappointed. Why are the doctors and nurses moving at such a slow pace. Utter disgust and frustration. We have been here many times in the past and the wait has never been this ridiculous. We ended up leaving and hoping to recover at home becaue we couldn't wait any longer, we both have to work in the morning!

I can't say enough about all the care that my dad received on 3north at Lawrence Hospital. My dad has been in and out of the hospital the past two months and each and every time the staff care has been impeccable. This last two week period my dad has been doing very poorly, terminal and sent home on hospice with limited time. Each and every time I went to the hospital, the greatest care was given to him, which put myself and my families worries at ease. The nurse care, and the aids, especially Raimonde, and all that were involved, to many names to remember, but in my heart, and a special thanks to Sharon, one of his nurses, made my dads stay as comfortable as possible. I am truly grateful for the comfort, smiles and support given to me. A shout out to Corey at food service who always with his bigger than life smile and personality made me smile, laugh and forget even for a precious minute, was so appreciated. My review would not be complete without a mention to Frank in the Lobby, who with his sincerity and caring nature for not just myself, my family, but to everyone who came across his desk when he was working, was truly a support to my every entry and departure from the hospital. Thank you all, and thank you for all the prays.
