The Emory University Hospital Pacemaker/ICD Services Program was established in 1991 by Paul Walter, MD, and Nancy Romeiko, RN. Dr. Walter was the medical director and overseeing physician and Ms. Romeiko served as head nurse. In 20 short years, the Pacemaker Program at Emory has grown to employ nine nurses, a technician and full-time administrative staff.
The Pacemaker/ICD Services Program serves over 3,500 patients who are actively receiving device monitoring services, and it has cared for more than 12,000 patients in the last 20 years! Emory’s Pacemaker Program averages approximately 400 to 430 procedures per week, including monitoring services by phone or remote system, and office visits in The Emory Clinic or one of the Program’s five outlying sites (Snellville, Decatur, Conyers, Hiawassee and Toccoa) in addition to Emory University Hospital Clifton Road campus location.
The Pacemaker Program provides device evaluation and monitoring services for all types of pacemakers and implanted defibrillators, including the latest devices used for pacing in congestive heart failure patients.
Many thanks go to the physicians, nurses and staff who have dedicated their careers to providing the highest quality of patient- and family-centered care to our patients in this program.
