Radial-First Catheterization Lab

Providence Medford Medical Center is one of approximately 10 percent of hospitals in the United States routinely offering an advanced cardiac catheterization procedure known as radial artery catheterization. In years past, the femoral artery was a logical choice for catheterization because its large size could accommodate various sizes of catheters, balloons and stents. However, modern equipment has become smaller and less invasive. Radial catheterization provides an innovative approach by inserting the catheter through the radial artery in the wrist. It is a more challenging procedure that requires significant training, increased precision and state-of-the-art technology. However, it is considered the top choice for faster recovery, immediate mobility, fewer complications from bleeding, and reduced patient stress and discomfort.

Women’s Heart Health

No heart beats like the heart of a woman. At Providence, we understand the unique heart health care needs of women. Providence Women and Heart Disease Program gives women the expert attention they deserve. 

Cardiac Rehabilitation Center at Providence

Providence Medford Medical Center’s Heart and Vascular Institute has expanded to include its newly-opened Cardiac Rehabilitation Center, bringing a new level of care to those suffering from heart-related illnesses. By providing comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation following coronary surgeries, the staff in the unit are striving to help patients recover faster and build long term habits that could make life post-surgery fruitful and fulfilling.

24/7 STEMI Facility

Providence Medford Medical Center is a STEMI (ST segment elevation myocardial infarction) facility, ready to meet the emergency needs of heart and vascular patients in southern Oregon. We have achieved the highest rate of rapid heart attack (STEMI) care in the region with 94 percent of our patients undergoing a procedure to open a blocked artery within 90 minutes—a gold standard of heart attack care. If you or a family member or friend experiences heart attack symptoms, remember to direct EMS personnel to transport the patient to the nearest STEMI capable hospital.
