Our Framingham Union Hospital is the only hospital between Boston and Worcester with a fully equipped cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology lab. This means that we are able to provide immediate emergency care for patients experiencing a heart
attack by assessing extent and location of blockages in heart arteries and opening the blockage in the vessel causing the heart attack and restoring normal blood flow. Our cardiac catheterization lab has recently received an American Heart Association award for STEMI care, meaning that our highly trained medical team consistently
opens blocked arteries in heart attack patients in under 90 minutes, which is the gold standard for care.
