Cardiac Care at Byrd Regional Hospital focuses on the functions and disorders of the heart and its connected circulatory system. According to the American Heart Association, 84 million people in the U.S. suffer from some form of cardiovascular disease, affecting blood flow throughout the body. Cardiovascular disease can lead to heart attacks, strokes or other serious complications.
Led by two full-time invasive cardiologists, Jose Mathew, M.D., and Reymond Meadaa, M.D., our Cardiac Cath and Cardiopulmonary Department includes an experienced team of cardiac nurses, diagnostic imaging technicians, respiratory therapists, and cardio-vascular sonographers. We use modern medical technology and diagnostic equipment to provide a wide range of diagnostic and preventative services for patients of all ages.
Byrd Regional Hospital takes a multidisciplinary approach to your heart care, meaning your treatment involves a broad range of specialists from many different areas. Multidisciplinary teams may include a cardiologist, hematologist, nurse, respiratory therapist, medical technologist, dietician, physical therapist, and others who are trained to work together to diagnose, treat and monitor a patient’s heart condition. These medical professionals collaborate to provide complete and personal care based on the specific health, diet and exercise needs of each patient.
