The cardiology service hosts two cathlabs, a non-invasive suite and a 6-bed chest pain unit. As an interventionist, I performed annually >200 diagnostic and interventional procedures as a primary operator. As a director of cardiac services, I overviewed the performance of cardiology consultants, specialists and technicians in the clinical, non-invasive and invasive domains. With the help of the quality department, we developed KPIs for the cathlab and cardiac services. I moderated monthly educational meetings as well as morbidity/mortality meetings. My team shared actively in getting the hospital JCI accredited in September 2015. Our cathlabs performed annually >900 diagnostic and interventional procedures. In 2015, my team managed to shift from femoral to radial in the majority of coronary procedures. We managed to develop the service for primary PCI in acute MI to run 24/7 with a door to device time <90 minutes. We started a program for PCI in chronic total occlusions and introduced the FFR for the first time in the facility. In 2016, we started a program of structural interventions for TAVR, left atrial appendage occlusion and closure of para-valvular leaks.
