We designed our Heart Center to house the latest technology and support the most advanced cardiac treatments and procedures. Yet, equally important, is that our Heart Center was built with the care and comfort of our heart patients and their families in mind. Both can have peace of mind knowing our cath labs, cardiovascular operating room, and intensive care unit are just steps away from each other. This allows the doctor to see a patient in a cath lab and, if surgery is needed right away, the doctor can quickly move the patient next door for surgery. Just a couple steps from the operating room is the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CICU), where our staff can closely monitor patients immediately after surgery.
The careful thought we put into our Heart Center is apparent the minute you step into the entranceway. Comfortable furniture and calming colors create a welcoming place where patients and families can settle down and ease their minds of worries they may have about heart care. Family and guests are able to read from an interesting selection of books and magazines, keep other family members and friends updated via the Internet, watch TV or view a favorite DVD, play games on one of the room’s computers, or simply relax to the gentle flow of our beautiful water sculpture.
For more than120 years, patients have trusted us to care for their most complex health care needs. With our state-of-the-art Heart Center we’re building even stronger trust that will take us well into the future.
