Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
This test records the electrical activity of the heart over time produced by an electrocardiograph, usually in a noninvasive recording via skin electrodes.
This is a painless test that uses sound waves to create images of the heart. It provides the doctor with information about the size and shape of the heart and how well the heart’s chambers and valves are working.
Accolades and Distinctions that set us apart
Our skilled staff and exceptional care of patients has earned not only distinctions from Healthgrades®, a leading independent heath care ratings organization, but also a Center of Excellence designation from a surgical review association and a rare excellence award for our critical care nurses. That’s the kind of assurance you want when choosing a hospital for surgery.
Prevention is the frontline for wellness. So, we offer convenient inpatient and outpatient medical imaging and lab services to detect and evaluate potential health conditions. Through routine diagnostic radiological procedures, or X-ray studies, our highly trained medical staff is able to identify disease at early stages.
From prevention to diagnosis to complex surgeries, our cardiothoracic services stay a beat ahead, providing effective treatments for your heart and chest. We take a preventive approach through diagnostic testing and biopsies, and our expert team uses innovative techniques to perform cardiac surgery, thoroscopy for detailed looks inside the heart and lungs and stent insertions to open blocked arteries.
California Heart Medical Associates (CHMA) pledged $100,000 last month to Community Medical Centers, targeting half for the Clovis Community Medical Center expansion and half for cardiovascular services at Community Regional Medical Center.
Clovis Community Medical Center is one of six hospitals statewide chosen to study the safety and effectiveness of elective angioplasties in hospitals that do not have open heart surgery on site.
