Piedmont HealthCare Heart & Vascular Donates EKG Machine to Iredell CATS

in News


November 23, 2022, Statesville, NC – On Tuesday morning, PHC’s Heart & Vascular office donated one of their EKG machines to Iredell Career Academy and Technical School (CATS). The machine will be used for training over 40 students each year as they work towards their Certified Nursing Assistant (CAN) credentials. “In addition to teaching at CATS, I work at a local hospital. We are all required to learn how to use an EKG. Having one in our classroom will be a great, hands-on, learning opportunity for our students,” said Jamie Head, instructor, and nurse at CATS.

 

Electrocardiograms (EKG) record the electrical signal from the heart to check for different heart conditions. Electrodes are placed on the chest to record the heart’s electrical signals, which cause the heart to beat. The signals are shown as waves on an attached printer.

 

Jeff Smith, CEO, and Jeff Taylor, HR Director, from Piedmont HealthCare, were in attendance to present the EKG machine to CATS principal Larry Rogers, Executive Director of Industry, Trade, and Business Development Todd Williams, and CNA instructors, Kim Rogers and Jamie Head.

 

Piedmont HealthCare and Iredell-Statesville Schools work together with Apprenticeship NC to provide a bridge from high school to community college by providing job learning while receiving job-related education credits.  Currently, PHC has 6 Apprenticeship NC students ranging from Phlebotomy, Medical Assisting, and Healthcare Management to Registered nurses.  Apprenticeship NC helps students pay for their college while allowing them an opportunity to work in their chosen field and earn a paycheck while going to school.
