To be part of our organization, every employee should understand and share in the YNHHS Vision, support our Mission, and live our Values. These values—integrity, patient-centered, respect, accountability, and compassion—must guide what we do, as individuals and professionals, every day.
The department of Cardiology provides a comprehensive range of services from cardiac stress testing to TEE and Cardioversions for both the inpatient and outpatient populations. The Cardiac Catheterization Lab procedures include diagnostic and emergent interventional cardiac catheterization procedures, as well as peripheral procedures. The Electrophysiology procedures include pacemaker and internal defibrillator implants. The Cardiology RN supports both the Cardiac & EP Special Procedure Labs and the Cardiology Department. Nurses providing care to our patient population must have strong critical care experience and skills to manage emergent situations. While on call for the MI Alert Team, nurses utilize their critical care nursing skills in a team approach to provide the highest level of care to our patients.
