The Heart & Vascular Center is part of the Cardiovascular Interventional Laboratory (CVIL). The CVIL is a state of the art imaging facility performing more than 12,000 diagnostic and interventional procedures annually, and operating eight procedure rooms for three general areas:
- Cardiac Intervention,
- Electrophysiology, and
- Heart Failure services.
Our technology equals – and in many cases exceeds – what is available at some of the most prestigious medical centers. Our CVIL is equipped for hybrid procedures in which cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons collaborate on procedures in the same location – allowing for catheter-based and surgical treatments. This lab allows improved image quality on multiple monitors, decreases radiation exposure and is designed to accommodate future cutting-edge procedures in cardiac care.
