Heart Care at WMC
The largest, most comprehensive cardiovascular provider in the Weirton-Steubenville Area.
The only with the latest, state-of-the-art technology.
WMC coordinates cardiovascular disease care at the hospital while providing patients who require heart surgery and other advanced cardiovascular care with seamless access to those services at Allegheny Health Network’s Cardiovascular Institute. So you get the best care here AND there.
WMC leads the way with the latest, state-of-the-art technology in interventional cardiology. The WMC Heart Care team uses technology known as Impella in the hospital’s heart Catheterization lab. Physicians use the Impella ventricular assist device on high-risk cardiac patients with much success.
The minimally invasive device is for the short-term support of the left ventricle which allows WMC interventional cardiologists to treat more complicated heart conditions here at home. Impella can also be used as a bridge to coronary bypass surgery—to safely allow time to get a patient to a tertiary facility which is fully-equipped to handle open heart cases.
Non-emergency cardiac catheterizations are performed in the cardiac catheterization lab on the main level of WMC. Hours are 6:15am to 6:45pm, Monday through Friday. Catheterizations are scheduled by your physician's office. Please register in the main lobby at least one hour prior to procedure time. Call (304) 797-6615 for more information.
Electrocardiograms or EKG's, echocardiograms, Holter monitors and a variety of stress tests (treadmill tests) are performed in the EKG department on the main level of WMC. Hours are:
Monday - Friday: 5:30 am to 3 pm
Monday - Friday: 7 am to 3:30 pm
