The latest technology…the best physicians…the finest cardiac care…all at Windham Hospital.
Cardiology services at Windham Hospital fall into two basic groups: diagnostics/referral and rehabilitation. Because the cardiologists at Windham are closely allied with the Henry Lowe Heart Center at Hartford Hospital, a patient who suffers a cardiac event can be evaluated at Windham, referred to Hartford, and in the cardiac catheterization lab at Hartford Hospital in less than an hour! Patients from the Windham region are particularly pleased to return to their “hometown hospital” for the rehabilitation and follow-up programs—they love the care they receive at Windham, and they love the short, easy commute to their local Hospital.
The Cardiac Diagnostic Center offers:
- nuclear stress testing
- exercise stress testing
- pediatric and adult echocardiography
- stress echocardiography
- transesophageal echocardiography
- Holter and event monitoring
- cardiac pacemaker evaluation
- 12-lead EKGs
- Electroencephalograms (EEGs)
Outpatient cardiac rehabilitation participants—who must be referred to a program by their physicians—meet three times a week at the Windham Hospital Rehabilitation Center, for as many as 12 weeks, under the supervision of specially trained RNs.
Cardiac Rehab hours: 7:00 AM - 3:30 PM Monday through Friday
Windham Hospital also hosts “Healing Hearts,” a monthly support group for cardiac patients. Meeting on the second Thursday evening of each month (September through June), Healing Hearts features guest speakers, and a community of people who share the same concerns. Light refreshments are served, and the December meeting is a Winter Holiday Celebration. Contact Jane M. Diaz, RN (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Teresa Lafleur, RN (email@example.com) at 456-6103 for more information.

In celebration of American Heart Month (in February), the Cardiac Rehab Department organized “Go Red for Women” on February 2nd—with cholesterol screening, informational materials, a healthy breakfast buffet, and a fashion contest: the best red-dressed staffer won a gift certificate!
