Rancho Springs Medical Center, a campus of Southwest Healthcare System, announced the re-opening of its Cardiac Catheterization Lab, offering diagnostic and interventional technologies and special amenities for patients to enhance their care experience. The updated Cath Lab at Rancho Springs Medical Center represents a $2.2 million investment in advanced services offered by the health system.

“We are excited to once again offer Cath Lab capabilities at Rancho Springs Medical Center,” said Jared Giles, Chief Executive Officer, Southwest Healthcare System. “From working with our physician partners and staff in planning, designing and opening the lab we are confident it will be well utilized and a great addition to our facility capabilities.”

“It is exciting to re-open the Cath Lab especially now that we’ve added technology in image guided therapy,” stated Alistair Machoka, Chief Operating Officer, Southwest Healthcare System. “The Philips Azurion System offers superior image quality that will make it easier for specialists to detect and diagnose heart anomalies with a level of detail that will allow them to make targeted decisions on intervention. As a hospital system, our commitment is to always provide our patients with the highest quality care locally.”

Southwest Healthcare System is the largest provider of healthcare services in the region. Recently, the hospital administrators announced plans for significant expansions for both Inland Valley Medical Center in Wildomar and Rancho Springs Medical Center in Murrieta. The dedication to enhance the variety and expertise of services offered, including the re-opening of the Cath Lab at Rancho Springs, continues to be the focus of the hospital system.

“Today marks a momentous occasion. A vision founded in years of hard work and dedication, that has now become tangible,” said Nader Attia, DO, Southwest Healthcare’s Chair of Cardiology Services. “The Cath Lab represents our hospital’s dedication to the patients and community we serve.” Physicians and staff agree that having the imaging technology and safety features found in this updated lab will help deliver first-rate care to patients that need the very best.
