Hudson Regional Hospital opens state-of-art Cardiac Cath Lab

The opening of the state-of-the art, 10,000-square-foot Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Hudson Regional Hospital is about more than just providing the latest technology for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac conditions.

It’s about keeping a promise of a superior standard of service.

So said Chairman of the Board Yan Moshe.

“It has been our mission from the beginning of our tenure in Secaucus to provide our physicians with well-equipped, technologically advanced, comfortable work environments for practice areas that we are constantly upgrading, as well as an extensive array of educational and mentoring opportunities,” he said. “We’ve created an atmosphere that is comfortable for our patients and physicians.”

HRH officials feel the Cardiac Cath Lab, which opened Thursday, will be the most innovative in the state of New Jersey. With access to the most up-to-date equipment, CEO Dr. Nizar Kifaieh said, the team of cardiovascular experts at Hudson Regional Hospital will be able to perform a variety of minimally invasive procedures, allowing for early diagnoses, treatments and potential life-saving procedures, ultimately enhancing the overall patient experience.

“The implementation of this new technology will support early diagnosis of coronary disease as well as provide for treatment of peripheral vascular disease, neuro intervention (acute stroke) and much more,” he said. “This investment will allow us to treat patients’ heart conditions with minimally invasive procedures, resulting in shorter and easier recovery periods.”

Dr. Vladimir Znamensky, the director of the lab, agreed.

About HRH

Hudson Regional Hospital, a community hospital located in Secaucus, has made it its mission to build a healthier community by providing exceptional care for all residents in the tri-state area through a significant investment in new technology, including the Institute of Robotic Surgery, featuring the Da Vinci XI Robotic System, ExcelsiusGPS and the Mazor Robotic Guidance System, as well as access to more physician groups, including some of the best physicians in the New York City metro area.

“The catheterization lab’s team will be providing critical, life-saving care right in Secaucus’ backyard, allowing patients to have their procedures done quickly and close to home, without the need for transfer,” he said. “Our expert team is dedicated to providing the most advanced cardiac care, keeping the focus on the patient’s health and recovery.”

HRH officials feel the new Cardiac Cath Lab will greatly enhance the community and surrounding area’s cardiac services, further outlining Hudson Regional Hospital’s commitment to staying on top of the newest advancements and developments in the medical field. The new suite will include two Siemens biplanes, a seven-bed recovery area and a waiting room for patients’ families and friends.

“Our new cardiovascular lab offers physicians the highest level of imaging technology available in order to treat complex coronary and vascular disease states found in our patient population,” said Andrew Erdman, director of critical care and cardiovascular lab for HRH.

Since taking over the facility at 55 Meadowlands Parkway in 2018, Hudson Regional Hospital’s leadership team has invested $50 million in capital improvements in order to secure the most groundbreaking technologies available today.

Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli said the effort has had impact.

“Hudson Regional Hospital’s continuous investments are unceasingly providing the best health care available to our community,” he said. “The opening of the Cath Lab will have a significant impact on the community, allowing patients to receive this type of care closer to home.”
