Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Cardiac Cath Lab

Recognized for our unique skill set 

North Shore Medical Center has been designated as a receiving facility by the Agency for Health Care Administration for coronary intervention. If that sounds impressive, it’s because it is. This Level I Adult Cardiovascular Services designation means that our hospital can administer emergency or elective PCI, a mechanical means of treating heart attack patients, or coronary artery occlusions. 

What does the cath lab mean for you?

Cardiac catheterization is a complex procedure. But what it means for you is that we have the onsite capability to get a good look at your coronary arteries to be able to quickly diagnose the potential causes of your heart issues.  

Cardiac Information 

The National Accreditation for Cardiovascular Excellence and the American Heart Association (NACE/AHA) set the guidelines and the national standard to intervene in any case where a patient’s cardiac vessels are diagnosed as blocked, and they set the measures for intervention to open the blocked vessels. These are the guidelines we use at North Shore Medical Center as our quality standards and practice measures.
