Cardiac Rehabilitation
Our multidisciplinary team of health professionals is dedicated to improving the quality of life for those recovering from a heart attack, heart surgery, or other cardiovascular disease. Suburban Hospital's Casey Center cardiac rehabilitation facility, conveniently located within the hospital, offers a structured program of education, exercise and peer support designed to guide positive lifestyle modification. Cardiac rehabilitation has four main components: medical evaluation, medically monitored physical activity, lifestyle education, and psychosocial support. Your doctor may recommend a cardiac rehabilitation program to help you and your heart to regain strength, to prevent further health complications, and to reduce your risk of future heart problems. Cardiac rehabilitation is an option for people of all ages and all types of cardiovascular disease. For more information, click here or call 301-896-2096.

Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology

The Eugene B. Casey Center for Diagnostic Cardiology provides essential noninvasive studies including advanced 3D echocardiography, electrocardiograms, exercise stress testing and more. As part of the NIH Heart Center at Suburban Hospital, the three new catheterization labs in the Orkand Center for Interventional Cardiology allow physicians to perform emergency and elective angioplasty and provide therapies such as drug-eluding stents, electrophysiology, pacemaker implantation, and placement of automatic internal cardioverter-defibrillators.

GCM-Suburban Imaging

This is a joint venture between Suburban Hospital and Doctors Groover, Christie, & Merritt, P.C. The full range of the most modern imaging modalities are offered including a dedicated combined PET/CT scanner, high field MRI, and multislice CT for diagnostic and screeing CT exams. We are also proud to provide diagnostic and interventional mammography services for the Suburban Breast Care program. Our state-of-the-art imaging center has been chosen as a National Show Site by G.E. Medical Systems.

Both the imaging center and Suburban Hospital's outpatient radiology department use all digital equipment and are filmless. This technology enables referring physicians to view their patient's studies from their home or office. Patients may also take a CD of their images with them after their exam. Studies can be transmitted electronically to subspecialty trained GCM radiologists to either the GSI office or to Suburban Hospital, providing rapid access to the highest quality interpretation.
