For patients in need of Critical Care medicine, our state-of-the-art critical care ventilators provide the most effective modes of Non-Invasive and Invasive ventilation and monitoring. This sophisticated equipment allows our community to receive a state of the art, high level of care within our ICU and ER. Our Critical Care Pulmonologists, Respiratory Therapists, and Nurses are all ACLS certified and highly skilled Critical Care experts.
Our new, state of the art capabilities in our Echo Lab are capable of both 2D and 3D image acquisition. This allows our Cardiologists the ability to assess heart function immediately non-invasively. If a higher level of invasive diagnostic tests are warranted, we also perform the highly specialized TEE, a procedure that allows pictures of the heart to be taken from inside the body, providing a better image. This procedure is performed in conjunction with a Cardiologist and Anesthesiologist with special training in this technique.
At Columbia Memorial Health, we believe an informed patient is a healthy patient. With over 200 years of combined healthcare experience, our Cardiopulmonary Department provides community education to residents of both Greene and Columbia counties for asthmatic children, appropriate medication and disease process education at discharge and are a wealth of knowledge. It is our goal to provide our community with the resources and knowledge needed to lead happy and healthy lives.
