Renovated 2-East Cardiology Pavilion Opens

Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset, an RWJBarnabas Health facility, opened its newly renovated 2-East Cardiology Pavilion today. The 30-bed unit, which includes eight private rooms, mirrors the hospital’s 2-West Cardiology Pavilion which was renovated last fall.

“We are committed to making continued investments in our facility and in the latest technologies to provide the best medical care to our community in a comfortable environment that promotes healing,” said Tony Cava, president and chief executive officer, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset.

The 2-East Cardiology Pavilion features a state-of-the-art wireless telemetry system that allows patients to move freely without being tethered to a bedside monitor. Each room features a “smart bed” which projects visual symbols on the floor so caregivers can monitor all aspects of bed safety at a glance – from whether the side rails are in place to whether the mattress is positioned correctly. The beds also offer verbal safety warnings when a patient tries to get up out of bed unassisted. In addition, the beds have USB ports for patients to charge their personal electronic devices.

Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset’s cardiology services include emergency and elective coronary angioplasty, a complete range of diagnostic testing including cardiac catheterization, pacemaker implantations and a three-phase cardiac rehabilitation program.
