ROBSON HEART & VASCULAR INSTITUTE
The second phase in cardiovascular care will expand on the foundation we
built through our Cardiac Surgery Program to include an Advanced Arrhythmia
Center (electrophysiology), a Cardiovascular ICU, a Structural Heart Program,
a Vascular Disease Program and more, thanks to a landmark gift in 2018
that named the Robson Heart & Vascular Institute. Ultimately, the
Robson Heart & Vascular Institute at Jupiter Medical Center will become
a premier center for cardiovascular care comprised of multiple Centers
VASCULAR DISEASE PROGRAM
Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) is often overlooked when more serious
cardiac disease is present. The Vascular Disease Program will include
a team of specialized physicians trained to detect abnormalities in the
vascular system and whose practice focuses specifically on vascular disease.
CARDIOVASCULAR INTENSIVE CARE UNIT
Part of offering open-heart surgery will include converting existing space
to build a Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CICU). The CICU will support
the state-of-the-art Cardiac Surgery Program, providing physicians and
patients with the latest in recovery techniques and technologies. Additionally,
Jupiter Medical Center will recruit highly trained critical care nurses
to meet the complex needs of very sick patients.
ADVANCED ARRHYTHMIA CENTER
With the addition of a new electrophysiology lab, Jupiter Medical Center
will be able to perform electrophysiology studies to diagnose and treat
abnormal heartbeats and arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation. The results
from these studies will allow cardiologists to determine whether a patient
will need medicine, a pacemaker, an implantable cardioverter defibrillator
(ICD), cardiac ablation or surgery.
STRUCTURAL HEART PROGRAM
The development and launch of a Structural Heart Program will deliver the
best possible treatment plan and outcomes for patients with structural
heart conditions, including treatment of conditions affecting the valves
and other vital structures of the heart.
ENHANCED CARDIAC REHABILITATION PROGRAM
At Jupiter Medical Center, the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program is a robust
program that includes monitored exercise, nutritional counseling and emotional
support to help most heart disease patients lower their risk of future
heart problems by making changes to improve their health. In the next
phase, Jupiter Medical Center’s cardiac rehab will continue offering
advanced Cardiac Rehabilitation for patients recovering from open-heart
surgery, with enhancements that will include a cardiac prevention program,
stress management, a nutrition education program and more.
