New Heart and Vascular Unit to open


A new heart and vascular unit has opened at the Longview Regional Medical Center. The unit offers 23 all-private rooms, four of those are handicapped accessible. Staff tells us the hospital also offers Mindray Telemetry Monitoring Systems, which provides all electronic storage. The director says the staff has been preparing for this opening for months.

"We have set forth for them several months ago competencies that they either had to update or maintain before the staff is able to work on this unit. It's been a growing excitement for the staff because they have seen the progress and they want to be involved," says Virginia Haraway, the unit's director.

The staff tells us they will start moving patients into these new rooms on Thursday.
