We employ four telephone receptionists and endeavor to provide our patients and referring physicians with prompt access to a human voice in order to meet your needs promptly.

Our technical staff consists of highly trained and experienced coronary care unit nurses who ensure rapid response to patient and physician inquiries. Our technical staff ensure the highest standard of quality and safety in our exercise stress lab as well as our echocardiography and stress echocardiography laboratory. As well we employ three nuclear medicine technicians to complement the diagnostic testing at both our facilities.

The Ottawa Cardiovascular Centre is supported by a dedicated array of medical records personnel, ECG technicians and typists to ensure the smoothest operation and flow of medical information.

The entire practice is supervised and managed by our administrative coordinator and manager May Moloughney. If at any time you have particular concerns relating to communication or liaison you may communicate with her directly through email.
