UTMC to open specialized cardiovascular unit

The new specialized cardiovascular unit at The University of Toledo Medical Center will focus a team of health care professionals trained in cardiovascular medicine to provide the best level of care to patients with heart illnesses.

UTMC will open its new cardiovascular unit with a ribbon cutting 9 a.m. Monday, July 16 on the third floor of the hospital.

With 47 new beds, the unit will offer patient’s private rooms, a decentralized nurses station and more personal care and attention. All doctors and nurses in the unit will have a specialization in caring for patients with cardiovascular health needs.

“The new cardiovascular unit brings highly trained physicians and nurses specialized in cardiovascular care and equipped with the latest technology to patients in a remodeled area of the hospital focused on also increasing their comfort during their stay,” said Dr. Scott Scarborough, senior vice president and executive director of UTMC.

UTMC has been advancing cardiovascular care for some time and was the first in the region to offer the left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) to the community at the end of 2011.

“We are excited about this addition to the hospital as part of our ongoing efforts to continue to offer patients not only the safest clinical care available at our academic health center, but also an exemplary patient experience during their course of treatment,” said Dr. Jeffrey P. Gold, chancellor, executive vice president for biosciences and health affairs, and dean of the College of Medicine and Life Sciences.
