St. Joseph’s Heart Institute is excited to announce the opening of its new facility, a completely reinvented clinical platform for cardiac care for patients in need of the most sophisticated diagnostic, interventional, or surgical procedures. The new, 35,000 square foot, $20 million facility is home to:
· 3 new cardiovascular operating suites
· 3 new cardiac catheterization labs
· 2 new electrophysiology labs
· 1 hybrid integrated digital surgical suite
For decades, St. Joseph’s Heart Institute has been a pioneer in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease. As one of the most technologically advanced and comprehensive centers for cardiovascular medicine in Florida, SJH’s Heart Institute has performed more than 74,000 adult cardiac catheterizations. The Heart Institute is also the first in the country to successfully treat atrial fibrillation cryoablation and the first in the region to implant the Melody© Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve- a procedure that is done without open-heart surgery.
Heart disease remains the number one killer or Americans, and this new facility reaffirms our eight-decade commitment to the cardiovascular health of our community by providing state-of-the-art care when every second matters.
