The first phase of renovations to The Walter and Maria Schroeder BRAIN&HEART Centre has come to completion with the upcoming opening of the brand new Catheterization Lab 3 inside St. Michael’s Hospital.

“Our teams have worked with incredible dedication and effort to turn this vision into a reality and we’re thrilled to begin using such an exceptional new space. The capacity of this catheterization lab is unparalleled and will enable us to make use of state-of-the-art equipment to care for our patients,” says Kim Boswell, Clinical Leader Manager of the Cardiac Catheterization Labs and Cardiac Arrhythmia Service at St. Michael’s.

The new catheterization lab, where diagnostic imaging procedures take place to diagnose and treat cardiac issues, is now the largest of its kind inside St. Michael’s, expanding by almost a third of its previous size.
