One-Stop Cardiovascular Unit (CVU)
What is a one stop recovery unit?
A one stop recovery unit provides post-operative care in one location from recovery through discharge.
Benefits of one stop recovery:
- Increased patient comfort
- Enhanced quality of care
- Less risk of infection
- Consistent patient care by the same staff
Our Cardiovascular Unit specializes in open-heart surgery, as well as cardio-thoracic and cardiovascular post-surgical care. Our other services include care of critical cardiac patients, including but not limited to Post-PTCA/Stent patients, Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy, and Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump
Of the most notable additions to this unit are the brand new private rooms we provide patients immediately following their surgery. Our spacious and comfortable rooms provide a soothing environment throughout the recovery period. In addition, we assign a specific team of medical staff that cares for our patients from the moment they leave surgery until they are ready to be discharged. This continuity and coordination of care helps decrease the amount of time for recovery and helps to provide a more comfortable healing process.
