Cardiology

Northwest Georgia's ONLY Full-Service Heart Hospital

Redmond Regional Medical Center is the region's largest, most technologically advanced, and complete cardiovascular center. Our heart team will walk with you though your entire journey from prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. Whether you’re managing cardiovascular disease or you’re recovering from a heart attack, our cardiologists partner with you to keep your heart healthy.

Heart attack prevention

Quick heart-attack care saves lives. Redmond’s trained Emergency Technicians (EMTs) used trailblazing InMotion and AirStrip Technologies to provide efficient care. EMTs are able to transmit electrocardiograms (EKGs) electronically to the emergency room-even from a patient's living room. AirStrip allows the cardiologist to view the EKG on a smart phone and diagnose a heart attack, even before the patient has arrived at Redmond’s doorstep.

We're dedicated to treating heart attack patients as quickly as possible by reducing the time it takes from the moment you enter the ER to the moment blood flow is restored to your heart. Currently, the national benchmark is 90 minutes and Redmond averages 52 minutes.

Serving our community for over 40 years

Redmond was built to bring Cardiovascular Services to Rome. We are the First and ONLY Open Heart Surgery Program in Northwest Georgia and Northeast Alabama. Our first heart catheterization was done in 1975, and we have performed over 100,000 since then. We currently perform 5,000 heart catheterizations per year. The Open Heart program was added in 1985, and we have performed numerous Open Heart Surgeries since then.

Every member of our Heart Team has been specially trained in caring for patients with Cardiovascular Disease. Our Emergency Care professionals, Board Certified Cardiologists and Cardiothoracic Surgeons, specially trained Cath Lab team, specially trained Clinical Nurse Navigators (Vascular, Cardiology, Cardiothoracic Surgery, and Heart Failure), and experienced Cardiovascular and Cardiac Rehabilitation Nursing Team will be with you every step of the way.
