Putting you at the heart of our care
When you come into the hospital for elective surgery, you want the best care possible before, during and after your procedure. Keeping checks on how well your heart and other vital organs are performing is an essential part of that care. For this reason, we’ve invested in many technologies for monitoring, including echocardiogram tests.
Echocardiogram, also called an echo, is a noninvasive ultrasound that uses sound waves to quickly obtain valuable information about your heart. Our doctors use this test as needed to learn about the size, shape and condition of your heart and its valves. Your safety, comfort and quick recovery are our top priorities.
If you are experiencing warning signs of a heart attack or another life-threatening emergency, call:
Critical care transport
Should you need more advanced heart services, our critical care transport team will make arrangements and take you to Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center, which has one of the largest, most comprehensive heart and vascular programs in the Winston-Salem area.
