Why Choose ROPH for Cardiac Care

  • Technology: The new cardiac catheterization lab at Rush Oak Park Hospital is equipped with the latest technology to diagnose and treat the full spectrum of heart conditions.
  • A better approach: In most cases cardiac catheterizations can be performed through the radial artery (wrist). When compared with the traditional femoral artery (leg) approach, the radial artery approach minimizes potential for bleeding, allows early ambulation, and may shorten length of hospital stay.
  • Rush University Medical Center expertise: The cardiology team Rush Oak Park Hospital also practices at Rush University Medical Center. So you get the same level of expertise as you would at a premier teaching hospital — close to home.
  • Excellence: The ROPH team is available around-the-clock to perform angioplasty. The team consistently exceeds national standards for the time is takes to open blocked arteries, ultimately saving heart function and lives.
