    Health care changes so fast, making it important to keep up with all the treatments needed for heart health. You can help make sure the Nasseff Heart Center continues to offer the best in heart care through a new, state-of-the-art Hybrid Surgical Suite. The suite will be a great addition to advancing our care for cardiovascular conditions.

    A Hybrid Surgical Suite blends the capabilities of a cardiovascular catheterization laboratory, where minimally invasive heart procedures are performed, with a traditional surgical suite where open-heart surgeries are performed. The suite, which is large enough for a dozen clinicians to work seamlessly, also features robotic three-dimensional imaging.

    Surgical Oncology Center of Excellence

    United Hospital was an early adopter and leader of robotic technology. While there are already da Vinci robots at United Hospital, two additional robots would allow the center to offer an array of advanced treatment options to improve clinical outcomes and promote a high-quality patient experience. Current and anticipated volumes, as well as new capabilities of the robots to perform other surgeries, also increase the need for more robotics.

    Joint Replacement Center of Excellence

    United Hospital strives to be the preferred destination for anyone who wants to live a full, active life, but has been hindered by joint pain. The Center will provide expanded, comprehensive services. Patients will be treated with innovative tools and patient rooms designed to aid in recovery.

    United Heart & Vascular Center of Excellence 

    United Hospital is committed to being a center of vascular solutions and will be comprised of seven program components: Cerebral vascular; Neuro-interventional; Aortic aneurism; Peripheral arterial disease and limb preservation; Vein clinic; Wound clinic and Dialysis access.

    United Medical Specialties Clinics Expansion Project

    United Medical Specialties (UMS) is a premier practice at United Hospital, widely recognized for clinical excellence and dedication to patient-centered care. United Hospital is seeking support to expand and relocate UMS to accomplish the following goals: double the number of internal medicine specialists; create a preferred medical destination for executive physicals; improve quality of life and stem the growing tide of chronic disease costs; and provide an accessible portal into United Hospital’s specialty services.
