Lutheran Heart Pavilion
The Heart Pavilion integrates heart services to one centralized area. Procedures as simple as an EKG to as complex as a heart transplant are performed in one state-of-the-art location. Four operating rooms (ORs) devoted to cardiovascular surgery and more than 20 private preoperative and postoperative rooms, each with individual heart monitoring systems, help enhance the quality of care. A total of five cardiac catheterization labs are also part of the centralized integration of services.
The Heart Pavilion design pays close attention to important environmental elements such as natural and indirect lighting and soft wood finishes. Surgical waiting areas offer a quieter, more private hospital experience for family and friends. There are more than 300 parking spaces between I-69 and the Heart Pavilion bring patients and families within yards of the Heart Pavilion entrance.
Even before establishing the region’s first Coronary Care Unit in 1967, Lutheran Hospital had become keenly aware of the special needs of heart patients and their families. Through periods of exciting change, Lutheran has continued to build relationships with local physicians and medical professionals who share a passion for providing patients the knowledge, skill and technology needed to remain on the cutting edge of heart care. With the number of baby boomers over the age of 55 set to increase by 20 percent over the next five years, Lutheran officials are poised to meet the ever-increasing needs of an aging population.
