The goal of our Cardiac Services program is to prolong life and significantly increase the quality of that life. With this in mind, Nacogdoches Memorial Hospital offers a comprehensive package of services, including major open-heart surgery, cardiac catheterization and cardiac rehabilitation.
We're one of East Texas' "grandfathers" in the open heart surgery field and take pride in making the first heart program available to our community, along with many other Nacogdoches "firsts" in the cardiac treatment field. Nacogdoches Memorial was the first to provide cardiac catheterization, open-heart surgery, balloon angioplasty, stents, drug-eluting stents, installation of an internal cardiac defibrillator and the installation of a permanent biventricular pacemaker.
Memorial Hospital has grown into a regional heart center, providing life-saving cardiac services to patients throughout East Texas, some even life-flighted to us for care. Our Level III Trauma Center means an unparalleled team of specially trained professionals in surgery and critical care are also at the ready, should you need more acute care.
