Come tour the new cardiac cath lab at Cox Branson

Cox Branson invites community to open house on Wednesday, July 22

When a person has a cardiac event, seconds count. Having a local hospital ready to provide top-quality care can make all the difference.

On Wednesday, July 22, the community is invited to an open house at Cox Medical Center Branson to learn about its newly renovated cardiac catheterization lab, or cath lab, which will open to patients the following day. The newly renovated cardiac cath lab has been complete with the latest technologies.

The cath lab is an examination room with diagnostic imaging equipment that allows doctors to visualize the arteries and chambers of the heart and then treat any stenosis or abnormality discovered.

The open house runs from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. and from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, July 22. Guests are invited to park in the inpatient parking garage located between the hospital and Plaza One and then enter the hospital through the main entrance. The cath lab is located on the second floor of the hospital.
