Comprehensive Heart Care Within Minutes of Where You Live

Mercy Health – Anderson Hospital is pleased to offer the latest heart procedures - including open-heart surgery - within minutes of where you live in a compassionate, caring environment. We make a level of care formerly available only at downtown hospitals available in your neighborhood. We offer:
  • a Diagnostic Imaging Center, offering state-of-the-art, 64-Slice CT scan
  • an expertly trained nursing and technical staff
  • emergency department specially equipped to care for heart emergencies
  • the area's finest cardiac physicians and surgeons 
  • the latest open-heart surgery suites and catheterization laboratories.
In addition, we recently opened a 600 square feet, state-of-the-art electrophysiology (EP) lab. With this, patients with atrial fibrillation can now receive expert care close to home.

Atrial fibrillation — often called A Fib — is a very common heart rhythm disorder. In fact, it affects more than 2 million people, most of whom are over the age of 55. The irregular rhythm, or arrhythmia, results from abnormal electrical impulses in the heart. The irregularity can be continuous, or it can come and go.

"Patients with A-Fib generally don’t have a good quality of life,” says R.P. Singh, MD, an electrophysiologist with Mercy Health – The Heart Institute. “They have to be on blood thinners and may require regular monitoring of their heart. The electrical studies and procedures we can now perform in the EP lab, allows us to diagnose and treat the cause of irregular heart beat and help the patient get off medications and enjoy a much better quality of life.

"Located within the cardiac catheterization lab, the new EP lab adds another level of cardiac care to the east side of Cincinnati. Prior to opening the new lab, EP patients were transferred to a hospital downtown for diagnosis and treatment.
