Keeping your heart in tip-top shape is now a little easier thanks to the new and improved, state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization lab at Brookdale University Hospital. The ribbon was snipped on the $2-million project on June 15 with CEO Mark Toney; Alex Rout, vice chairman of the board; Sandra Chapman, deputy borough president; Rep. Inez Barron, (D–East New York); Councilman Charles Barron, (D–Canarsie); Rep.Nick Perry, (D–Flatbush); and state Sen. John Sampson, (D–Canarsie) in attendance. The high-tech imaging equipment allows physicians to provide a faster diagnosis and improves treatment options of the more than 50,000 patients treated annually.

The lab currently performs angioplasties, angiograms, and stenting procedures to more than 1,000 patients.

CEO and hospital president Mark Toney couldn’t be more pleased with the addition.

“Adding this new state-of-the-art imaging equipment expanded cardiac lab puts us at the forefront of cardiac care facilities in the borough,” Standing O pal Mark told us.

Even the doctors are happy to have a new toy. “It [the lab] will allow our physicians to complete a variety of diagnostic and interventional procedures faster and that means the patient is off the table and on their way to recovery and discharge much sooner,” said Dr. Hal Chadow, co-director of cardiology and director of cardiac catheterization at the hospital.
