Licking Memorial Hospital (LMH) takes great pride in providing excellent cardiovascular services to the community. We specialize in providing timely lifesaving techniques and the latest technology for patients with the risk of cardiovascular disease. Our outstanding relationship with the local emergency medical services (EMS) means our patients can expect rapid, exceptional care prior to reaching the Hospital. Our equipment and software allow medics to deliver an electrocardiogram (EKG) to the Emergency Department (ED) before the patient arrives.
