Cardiac Catheterization

Whether you come in with a cardiac emergency requiring heart cath procedure or for a scheduled balloon angioplasty to open a blocked artery, you can count on the quality, expertise and caring of Baptist’s heart catheterization specialists in our San Antonio hospitals.

When seconds count.

At Baptist’s cath labs, our highly trained specialists diagnose and treat your heart using the most up-to-date cardiac catheterization procedures. We treat more than hearts, we treat people. Using the latest treatments and treating the whole person is our main goal. That’s Baptist Care.

Quicker, better medical response means less damage to your heart. With Cardiac Cath Labs incorporated into the Accredited Chest Pain Centers at all five Baptist hospitals, we’re close to home and close to work.

We’re proud of the efforts by Baptist’s doctors, nurses, staff and Emergency Medical Services crews to get our heart attack patients into the cath lab for treatment in most cases in 60 minutes or less from the time they walked into the ER. The national standard for “Door-to-Balloon” is 90 minutes.
