Cardiac Care

The Canmore Hospital Cardiac testing clinic offers Cardiology and Internal medicine clinics 4-5 days each month. We have Dr. Peter Nichol and Dr. Sarah Weeks in Cardiology and Dr. Troy Pederson in Internal Medicine. Kelly Yurasek, our Clinical Exercise Specialist and Cardiac Sonographer, works at the hospital 2 days per week. We have been in operation since January 2007.
In our clinics we offer diagnostic testing, including holter monitoring, ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, stress testing and echocardiography. Since November 2013 we were granted accreditation to offer remotely supervised echocardiography. This service allows the physicians in the hospital to have an echocardiogram on a patient that is an inpatient or emergency patient without a Cardiologist onsite. Images are transmitted to the Rockyview Hospital and read by a cardiologist there. Reports are sent back to the Canmore Hospital. This helps the local physicians have more information to treat their patient onsite rather than sending the patient to Calgary for the test.
The Canmore Hospital Foundation has been instrumental in providing the Diagnostic equipment for the Cardiac testing Clinic. Without the help of the Foundation the clinic could not operate.
