Kudos to Sinai-Grace’s cardiovascular team for providing exceptional heart and vascular care to more than 30,000 patients last year.
Sinai-Grace’s cardiovascular team was the one and only Detroit hospital team to be recognized as a Blue Distinction Center for Cardiac Care by Blue Cross Blue Shield in 2016. Additionally, in 2016 US News and World Report ranked the Sinai-Grace team as high performing for congestive heart failure care.
For heart attack patients, Sinai-Grace’s team has a specialized group called Cardio Team One whose on-site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Working in collaboration with the Emergency Department team, Cardio Team One quickly assesses ER patients who are experiencing heart attack symptoms and provides emergent cardiac catheterizations.
We recognize and thank our cardiovascular team for providing comprehensive care to patients, offering everything from diagnostic testing to therapeutic surgical procedures to rehabilitation. Some newer services the team provides patients include:
- An advanced procedure to deliver clot buster medication directly to pulmonary embolisms, or clots in the artery supplying essential oxygen-rich blood to the lungs. The medication breaks the clots up so our doctors can remove them.
- A newly enhanced Cardiac Cath Lab suite, providing more precise images for therapeutic cardiac catheterizations with stenting, emergency angioplasty, laser atherectomy, peripheral procedures with cryoplasty, and more.
- Pulmonary Rehabilitation, an education and exercise therapy program for people with respiratory illnesses to help improve their ability to breathe.
- A new subcutaneous implantable defibrillator procedure for people at risk for sudden cardiac death that reduces risks and complications associated with defibrillators that have wires that touch the heart.
Sinai-Grace’s cardiovascular team is comprised of 65 doctors and nearly
60 employees, including physician assistants, cardiac invasive specialists, nurses, technologists, technicians, electrophysiologists, and sonographers. Great job team!
