Since heart disease is the leading cause of death in America today, cardiology services represent an important aspect of the care that The Villages Regional Hospital provides. We provide our patients with the most up-to-date noninvasive and interventional techniques and technology available in the region.
Our hospital offers two Philips Ambient Experience cardiac catheterization laboratories and performs more than 500 cardiac catheterization procedures a year. The labs integrate architecture, design and dynamic lighting and sound to allow patients to personalize their environment to create a relaxing atmosphere.
The Villages Regional Hospital was one of the first in the region to successfully implant the Medtronic Reveal LINQ – the smallest implantable cardiac monitoring device available.
A complete range of cardiac-diagnostic services and tests are offered here, including electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, transthoracic echocardiogram, cardioversion, cardiac stress tests, cardiac monitoring and more.
Completing our continuum of care, cardiac rehabilitation offers outpatient monitored exercise and educational programs designed to reduce the risk factors for coronary artery disease.
Our program is tailored to the personal interests, needs and abilities of each patient. Cardiac Rehabilitation offers a safe and enjoyable way for people with heart disease, or those who have had cardiac surgery, to improve their cardiovascular fitness, function and knowledge.
