The institute’s new 15-story Ginsburg Tower is designed to create a total healing atmosphere that reduces stress, rejuvenates the spirit and promotes recovery.
The facility, which features views of Lake Estelle, is light and airy with lots of open space. Nearly two years in the making, the tower’s design offers patients comfortable, private rooms that are focused entirely on the needs of the patient, their family and the caregiver.
The institute’s facilities include:
Supported by a team of more than 1,000 specially trained nurses and technicians, our 135 board certified cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons offer patients the best care in the region, if not the entire country.
Each year, the Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute handles more than 70,000 cardiac-related visits. The institute’s team of world-class caregivers performs nearly 2,000 cardiac surgeries a year, from the fairly routine to the extremely complex.
These procedures include valve repair and replacement, heart remodeling, transplants and MAZE, which is surgical/cath procedures used to treat atrial fibrillation. The Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute has a reputation for excellence in cardiac issues, not only in terms of surgery, but in performing clinical trials that bring the latest treatments and technologies to the forefront of cardiac care.
Our team of 135 board certified cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons is backed by a support staff of more than 1,000 dedicated cardiac and critical care nurses, cardiovascular technicians, cardiac rehab specialists, physical therapists and nutrition specialists. The Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute personnel carefully coordinate each stage of patient care, from diagnosis and treatment to post operative care and rehabilitation.
To advance the treatment of cardiac issues, the Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute participates extensively in nationally and internationally recognized cardiac research studies.
At the forefront of new techniques, technologies and procedures, the institute’s studies allow patients to gain access to advanced therapies months, if not years, before they become available to the general public.
Our physicians also participate in “investigator-initiated” studies. These studies, which are initiated and directed by the Florida Hospital Cardiovascular Institute, challenge the status quo in the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. Many of our physician’s studies are also published annually in peer-reviewed journals medical journals.
