Cardiology Services

Northwest Georgia’s ONLY Full-Service Heart Hospital

Redmond Regional Medical Center is the region's largest, most technologically advanced, and complete cardiovascular center consisting of the finest collection of heart specialists who are among the nation's leading experts in the fields of cardiac imaging, heart failure, interventional cardiology, and electrophysiology, including atrial fibrillation management, surgical intervention, and more.

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.

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.

Redmond takes pride in their reduced door-to-balloon time. This refers to the time at which a patient enters the doors of the emergency room to the moment that blood flow is restored by a balloon angioplasty or stent procedure. Currently, the national benchmark is 90 minutes. Redmond boasts an impressive 52-minute average door-to-balloon time, and this quickness has saved many lives.
