The cardiac cath lab team at North Alabama Medical Center hit a major milestone by performing the 90,000th heart cath since the lab opened in 1978. The cath lab team performed the milestone heart cath August 21, 2019.
Dr. Bill Heaton examined the patient’s heart after he was admitted for chest pain. Dr. Heaton says he had blockage in his arteries but did not need a stent.
“I’m a celebrity,” joked Lee, the patient when he heard the news. Lee has a family history of heart disease so he was grateful when no further treatment was required.
