For many people, self-improvement in the new year involves stepping away from drinking during January. Dry January, a public health challenge that calls for abstaining from alcohol throughout the month, gives us a chance to reset after the holiday season and reflect on the role alcohol plays in our lives.Read More
Vineland, New Jersey – In February 2021, the New Jersey Department of Health made it possible for community hospitals to provide elective Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) procedures. Today, Inspira Medical Center Vineland, part of Inspira Health, announces they have been awarded their license to perform elective PCI procedures, effective June 20, 2022. Inspira Health is part of Cardiac Partners, along with Cooper University Health Care, which provides patients in the South Jersey region with access to more coordinated and comprehensive cardiac services across the continuum of care.
“As an organization committed to serving as a trusted health care partner, Inspira is always looking for ways to elevate and expand the care we provide across our region in a safe and compassionate environment,” said Amy B. Mansue, President and CEO of Inspira Health. “This license is a true testament to the tireless efforts and commitment of our staff members, as well as expertise of our interventional cardiology team to provide the highest quality of care and clinical excellence.”
Inspira has been providing full-service diagnostic cardiac catheterization for the past 25 years and emergent PCI procedures since 2009. With the addition of elective PCI at Inspira Medical Center Vineland, alongside the recent addition at Inspira Medical Center Mullica Hill, the organization is now able to take cardiac care to a new level. Elective PCI is a scheduled procedure that cardiologists use to open clogged coronary arteries, with stents, in patients diagnosed with coronary artery disease. This minimally-invasive treatment restores blood supply to the heart muscle and helps prevent heart attack, heart failure and other forms of heart disease.
“The new legislation from New Jersey Department of Health has been pivotal for the care our cardiac team can provide patients close to home,” said Kurt W. Kaulback M.D., Clinical Director of Network Cardiovascular Services at Inspira Health, and member provider with Cardiac Partners at Cooper and Inspira. “The ability to offer elective PCI at yet another Inspira Health location is monumental, and will enhance and save the lives of many patients in our community.”
“We are grateful for the opportunity to offer elective PCI procedures at Inspira Medical Center Vineland,” said Andrew Zinn M.D., Medical Director of the Cardiac Catherization Lab at Inspira Medical Center Vineland. “Our team is looking forward to delivering this critical service to patients with the highest quality of care, and making a profound impact on the local community.”
