What is our Pacer Clinic?
At Summit Healthcare Pacemaker Clinic, specially trained registered nurses and physicians provide education and ongoing care for patients who have a pacemaker or ICD. Summit Healthcare provides a full-service state-of-the art Pacer Clinic for patients.
Summit Healthcare’s Pacer Clinic meets the needs of the community with pacemaker and ICD needs, including implantation, battery changes, lead revisions and interrogations.
During the follow-up visits, the pacemaker’s functions and battery levels are checked and if needed, the pacemaker settings can also be adjusted.
Interrogating the pacemaker will identify a pacemaker’s malfunction early on and all the staff have the ability to optimize the pacemaker settings to best meet the needs of the patient while maximizing the life of the pacemaker battery.
