Methodist Jennie Edmundson Cardiovascular TeamTime is muscle.

This common phrase is well-known to healthcare providers in the ED who have been called upon to treat a heart attack. The longer you take to stabilize the heart, the higher the risk of long-term damage to the patient’s heart.

"Time is muscle” was the impetus for the new $6 million cardiovascular suite at Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

The hope of the organization’s leadership team is that closer proximity to the ED, along with state-of-the-art equipment, will improve outcomes for not only heart attack patients, but any patients in need of cardiovascular services. The new facilities will also allow the hospital to serve more patients and expand access to local care.

Cassling partnered with Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital, acting as trusted advisors to ensure they had the proper guidance throughout the project, from preliminary planning through final install.

“We were in the market for some new equipment, they came and gave us not only some demonstrations but took us on a road trip to see other facilities, said Marcia Keith, service leader for cardiovascular services at Jennie Edmundson. “They spent their time to make sure we got what we wanted, so that was a great bonus for us.”

With Cassling’s field service engineers at the ready to ensure effective performance of their new systems, Methodist Jennie Edmundson can have confidence in their technology and focus on delivering expert cardiac care to their community for years to come.
