Open House Set for New Regional West Cardiac Catheterization Lab

SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb., ― The public is invited to an open house Monday, Feb. 25 from 4 to 6 p.m. to celebrate the opening of Regional West’s new Cardiac Catheterization Lab, located at the Heart and Lung Center. Welcoming remarks will be at 4: 15 p.m.

The Catheterization Lab has been totally renovated and new, state-of-the-art equipment was recently installed with funding provided by Regional West Foundation.

The lab offers advanced technology to evaluate or confirm the presence of heart, valve, and aortic disease; evaluate heart muscle function; and determine the need for further treatment. In addition, the lab is used for procedures involving pacemakers, internal defibrillators, and loop recorders.

The open house will honor a generous contribution made in support of the Catheterization Lab renovation by the Bryan Frank family, Regional West staff, and Regional West Foundation donors.

“This project required dedication and effort, from the funding and planning phases through implementation,” said Craig Krentz, Regional West executive director of Ancillary Services. “I am so grateful to everyone who supported this project and I’m thrilled with the outcome. I’m proud to be a part of this team and excited we can offer this technology to the communities we serve, while improving the care offered close to home.”

“The Foundation is proud to support enhancing patient care at Regional West. The equipment purchased for the Catheterization Lab through the Capital Campaign for Continuing Excellence is just one example of our commitment to Regional West and the patient experience,” said Julie Marshall, Regional West Foundation director of development.
