On February 22, Adventist Health celebrated the opening of its advanced cardiac catheterization lab at Adventist Health Tulare.

The community celebrated the ribbon-cutting with a sparkling cider toast and set off confetti poppers outside the hospital's main entrance. Attendees also toured the cath lab and received a step-by-step explanation from staff on the daily processes.

"We're thrilled to expand specialty care for our Tulare County community," said Joe Croft, Cardiovascular Services director for Adventist Health Central California Network. "The cath lab will improve patient outcomes and ensure that residents of the Tulare area have access to excellent cardiac care."

The new cath lab uses X-rays to generate real-time images, and has diagnostic tools to help a physician diagnose cardiovascular issues, such as heart disease or an abnormal heartbeat, and then determine the best course of treatment.

"Tulare community members can now receive state-of-the-art cardiovascular and interventional radiology services close to home," said Dr. Ankur Gupta, a board-certified interventional cardiologist who serves as the cath lab's medical director. "Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, and this new addition makes many life-saving procedures possible for our community."
