Williamsburg, Virginia – Starting February 16, patients on the upper Peninsula who may have waited a day or two for routine heart catheterizations or vascular treatments now have full-time availability of these services at Sentara Williamsburg Community Hospital. The new laboratory will also be available to anyone in need of emergency angiographies and vascular procedures after hours and on weekends.

When the combined catheterization, angiography, and vascular (CAV) laboratory debuts February 16, patients will have the choice of extended hours Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

According to Robert Graves, administrator of Sentara Williamsburg Community Hospital, Sentara has made a commitment to the residents of the Greater Williamsburg area. “While Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center opens in 2006 as a significant health care resource, we are strengthening programs such as cardiac now to promote wellness for the people of this region,” says Graves.

The CAV laboratory, staffed with technicians and nurses proficient in diseases affecting both the heart and blood vessels, offers patients a new level of care and convenience. Additional space in the area improves procedure times and provides patients increased privacy before and after procedures. Permanently located in the radiology department on the ground floor (EL) of Sentara Williamsburg Community Hospital, the lab will serve approximately 1,500 patients who have clogged arteries, undiagnosed heart and circulation issues, and kidney or other blockages, among other concerns.
