    Cath Lab

    IAC Seal of Accreditation for EchocardiographyJohnson Memorial Health has earned Echocardiography Accreditation by IAC (Intersocietal Accreditation Commission). IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indicator of consistent quality care and a dedication to continuous improvement. Johnson Memorial Health has been granted a three-year term of accreditation by the IAC in Echocardiography in the area(s) of Adult Stress, Adult Transesophageal, and Adult Transthoracic. Accreditation by the IAC means that Johnson Memorial Health has undergone an intensive application and review process and is found to be compliance with the published Standards thus demonstrating a commitment to quality patient care in echocardiography. 

    Our cardiovascular care center offers residents a diagnostic cardiac catheterization lab. The lab includes a private patient recovery area, as well as a broad range of non-invasive cardiac diagnostic testing.

    Our doctors perform a wide variety of procedures that address cardiac and vascular diseases and blood flow problems. We've also trained the Johnson Memorial nursing staff at the Indiana Heart Hospital on the highest standards of post-procedure care. When it comes to heart care, you've got the absolute best right in your backyard.

    The Cardiovascular Care Center is Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) certified.

    The center’s other capabilities include:

    Cardiac Rehabilitation

    Cardiac Rehab doesn’t change your past, but it can help you improve your heart’s future. It is a medically supervised program designed to help you improve your cardiovascular health if you have experienced heart attack, heart failure, angioplasty or heart surgery.

    Your physicians will help you decide if you qualify for Cardiac Rehabilitation. Medicare and commercial insurance cover the cost for participants meeting certain guidelines. Anyone who is interested in participating in Cardiac Rehab is encouraged to contact his/her physician.

    The JMH Cardiac Rehab Center is located on the first floor of the hospital across from the Gift Shop. To contact us, please call 317.346.3995.

    Exercise, Counseling and Training

    Exercise gets your heart pumping and your entire cardiovascular system working. You will learn how to get your body moving in ways that promote heart health.

    Registered nurses will supervise aerobic exercise, muscle building and stretching exercises into your visit. We offer free weights, treadmills, bicycles and steppers.

    Participants will benefit from:

    • Increased endurance
    • Weight control
    • Education in blood pressure and blood sugars
    • A healthier heart, and overall wellbeing

    Education for Heart Healthy Living

    Managing your risk factors, choosing good nutrition, quitting smoking, and other education about heart-healthy living is a key element of cardiac rehab.

    Education will help each participant learn about his or her own heart disease, what caused the disease and how to deal with the disease while living a normal life.

    Counseling to Reduce Stress

    Stress hurts your heart. This part of rehab helps you identify and tackle everyday sources of stress.

    Constant or chronic stress can cause the body to remain in high gear for extended periods of time, which causes breathing and heart rate to speed up and blood pressure to rise. Stress can also cause aches and pain, tiredness and difficulty sleeping, and anxiety, depression and other emotional distress.

    Our staff will teach you how to fight stress with healthy habits.

    Wellness Program

    This phase of rehabilitation can help anyone with risk factors for coronary artery disease or as a maintenance program once cardiac rehab has ended.

    If you have traditional risk factors for coronary artery disease including high HDL and LDL cholesterol, high blood pressure, family history of heart disease, diabetes, smoking, post-menopausal women or older than 45 for men, or obesity, this program will support you in living a healthy lifestyle

    Our Wellness Program is a self-pay program and aims to provide monitored physical exercise designed to continue recovery from a heart condition or to reduce risk factors related to coronary artery disease.
