Background and History
The New Brunswick Heart Centre's official opening ceremony was held on March 18, 1991. Patients were referred and admitted to the Saint John Regional Hospital the week of April 2, 1991. The first cardiac catheterization and heart surgery procedures were performed on April 8, 1991 which culminated years of planning and preparation.
On April 21, 2006, the NBHC celebrated the opening of a 3rd lab, the Electrophysiology Laboratory. This came as a recommendation from an External Review of Cardiac Services in New Brunswick that was carried out in 2004.
