ROME, N.Y. — St. Joseph’s Health Cardiovascular Institute has opened an office in the Dorothy G. Griffin Cardiovascular Center at Rome Memorial Hospital (RMH).

St. Joseph’s Health is leasing office space for its new cardiology practice and plans to expand coverage there over the coming months, St. Joseph’s Health said in a news release. Seven cardiologists from St. Joseph’s Physicians will staff the practice.

Patients will have access to RMH’s diagnostic cardiac testing, including nuclear cardiology studies, computed tomography (CT) angiograms, exercise stress tests, electrocardiograms (EKGs), echocardiograms, Holter cardiac monitoring, and vascular ultrasound.

When RMH affiliated with St. Joseph’s Health, it was with the “primary goal of expanding patient access to needed services in the community,” David Lundquist, president and CEO, said in the release.

“The statistics related to the impact of heart disease are staggering and the needs for cardiac care increase every year. “Providing quality cardiovascular care in our community is a critical component to a healthy community. St. Joseph’s Health shares our commitment to providing patients with high-quality, patient-centered care that is coordinated and easily accessible,” said Lundquist.
