Linacre Private Hospital offers an extensive range of cardiac services. Our modern spacious 16 bed Cardiac Unit comprises 5 Coronary Care beds, 1 cardiac rapid assessment bed and 10 cardiology beds, all with advanced monitoring equipment and facilities to manage any acute care patient, in a comfortable private environment. The cardiology beds offer patients with medical conditions such as angina, arrhythmias and those recovering from heart attack with full telemetry monitoring capacity.
The dedicated cardiology beds are for those patients with medical conditions such as unstable angina and patients recovering following catheter lab procedures. This ward can cater for patients with full telemetry monitoring capacity enabling patients to move around the ward freely within hours of their procedure. The monitoring is visible to cardiac nurses at all times from bedside and central monitors.
