North Kansas City Hospital’s cardiovascular services are located on the 11th Floor of the Pavilion. This floor consolidates many of the Hospital's cardiac services for the convenience of patients and families.
- 12-bed cardiovascular intensive care unit
- dedicated anesthesia
- four cardiac surgery suites with recovery
- family waiting area
- the highly trained staff from Mid-America Heart and Lung Surgeons
When you consolidate services you gain efficiencies in staff, equipment and most importantly, you get even better patient outcomes. Premier cardiac centers like the Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic use this type of care model.
According to cardiologist Michael Farrar, MD, "Our goal for patients is to provide them with the best care and the best outcomes which will be even further enhanced in this new area."
