Upstate opens new Heart and Vascular Center
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Upstate University Hospital has officially opened its new Upstate Heart and Vascular Center (HVC), a $15 million, 18,500-square foot facility that features technological advancements for the treatment of cardiac and vascular conditions. The HVC also integrates the hospital’s cardiac and vascular services into one patient-friendly location.
The HVC is located on the renovated sixth floor wing of Upstate University Hospital, 750 E. Adams St., in Syracuse. The facility was designed by Cannon Design of Buffalo, N.Y.
The HVC provides a welcoming environment for all patients. It consolidates invasive and non-invasive cardiac diagnostic testing into one location while integrating data management systems for maximum efficiency.
“It is wonderful to have all of these vital services in one location,” said Upstate’s Luna Bhatta, M.D., F.A.C.C., director of the Stereotaxis program and the Electrophysiology Lab at the HVC. “The center allows for greater collaboration among our colleagues and enhanced care for our patients.”
Among the HVC’s features are:
• an Endovascular Imaging Suite that provides a vast range of procedures and interventions of the vascular system;
• a digital-based Cardiac Catheterization Lab that provides treatment to patients with coronary artery disease and other cardiac diagnoses;
• expanded echocardiography capabilities that offer 3D and 4D imaging;
• a seven-bed recovery area, family patient education and consultation centers, and waiting room; and
• a new Stereotaxis Magnetic Navigation system used to treat abnormal heart rhythms. The system allows physicians to conduct interventional procedures that are remotely controlled, magnetically guided and safer than traditional methods used to treat arrhythmias.
