Houston Methodist Sugar Land is opening a newly expanded, state-of-the-art Heart & Vascular Center to expedite care for cardiac patients.
The new Heart & Vascular Center, which opens in August, now brings together all the hospital’s cardiac resources in a specially designed facility adjacent to the hospital’s emergency room.
The Heart & Vascular Center includes a 19- bed observation unit – where patients can be closely monitored by highly trained and experienced physicians, nurses and support staff – and four state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization labs.
“In a cardiac emergency, minutes count,” said Ellis. “Our new facility is designed to enable us to quickly diagnose patients and carry out the proper course of treatment, all right here under one roof.”
