The inpatient medicine and cardiology unit at Peterborough Regional Health Centre serves as a regional resource to fulfill the needs of patients who may have cardiac -related illnesses. The unit is located on A4, which provides care to a diverse group of patients, including those who may have had a heart attack, arrhythmias, unstable angina or heart failure.
