Heart Care Services
Platte County Memorial Hospital offers diagnosis, emergency stabilization and follow-up treatment for heart care patients in Wheatland, Wyo. and the surrounding areas.
Platte County Memorial Hospital offers these heart care services:
When you have trouble with your heart or lungs, you may require treatment in our cardiopulmonary department. We provide respiratory therapy and cardiac treatments. Some respiratory therapy procedures include breathing treatments, pulmonary function tests and ventilator management. Cardiac treatments include electrocardiograms or EKGs, blood gas testing and holter monitoring.
Most heart care patients enter Platte County Memorial Hospital through the Emergency room because they experience chest pain or other symptoms related to heart disease. The acute care team specializes in stabilizing the patient and preparing them for transfer to a larger nearby hospital to receive care for their heart condition.
Once patients return to Wheatland, they can see one of our visiting cardiologists for follow-up care including medication management, diet and exercise instruction and testing if necessary.
