University Health System’s (UHS) flagship facility, University Hospital (UH) includes a Level I Trauma center with over 700-beds, maintains Nursing Magnet Status, ACC Chest Pain Center accreditation, and Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention accreditation. UHS recently completed a significant expansion and redesign of the Advanced Diagnostic Center. Cardiology, vascular, pulmonology, gastroenterology and neurology services are now all located within one 46,000-square-foot center—nearly an acre of the most advanced patient care available. The new center includes spacious and flexible operating suites; two hybrid catheterization labs; five state-of-the art cardiac catheterization labs; 30 dedicated pre-op and PACU beds; & direct access to emergency and trauma facilities. These new services and technologies expand access to minimally-invasive diagnostic and interventional procedures, giving patients better treatment options — and a way back to their lives sooner. The planned construction of a new bed tower will facilitate even further expansion of Cardiology and HVI services.
