All Under One Roof
On the ground floor, physicians and clinicians provide noninvasive procedures such as electrocardiograms and nuclear imaging.
The new Parkview Heart Institute features specialized hybrid labs – suites equipped to accommodate several cardiac procedures in one location, including cardiac catheterization, electrophysiology and surgical procedures. This approach saves time and lower risks for individuals treated at the Parkview Heart Institute. In addition, the hybrid labs allow the team of caregivers to combine techniques and treat conditions that were previously inoperable.
On the second floor, procedures such as coronary catheterizations and pacemaker implants occur. The four catheterization suites are just steps away from the comfortable, private rooms.
Patients staying overnight will receive care in one of the suites on the Parkview Heart Institute’s fourth floor. This special care unit allows patients to recover under close nursing supervision in comfortable beds. Wireless internet access is available throughout the Parkview Heart Institute. Sofas in the suites fold out into beds, allowing family members to stay overnight.
Recovering heart patients can exercise at their own pace in a fully equipped rehabilitation facility, complete with programmable treadmills, stationary bikes, a walking track and other equipment – always monitored by trained Parkview Heart Institute professionals. In addition, facilities for health screenings and education programs are found here on the fifth floor.
