When cardiac disease or a heart attack occurs, it is important to have the most knowledgeable team and latest technology on your side. Holy Cross Hospital's 20,000 square foot Emergency Center is designed to respond to life-threatening emergencies. Laboratory and radiology services are available in the Emergency Center to help quickly determine the best course of treatment.
For certain patients experiencing a heart attack, the hospital offers emergency angioplasty, achieving outcomes that are far better than traditional drug therapy.
Holy Cross Hospital cares for more stroke patients than any other hospital in Montgomery or Prince George's counties.
The hospital's stroke team is available 24/7 to evaluate and treat possible strokes via a consistent evidence-based pathway during those crucial first hours. Holy Cross Hospital's two dedicated cardiac care units are equipped with the latest technology for continuous cardiac and oxygen monitoring capabilities. They are staffed with nurses with specialized expertise for the best possible care for the patient.
