CoxHealth announced Wednesday the opening of a new Cardiovascular Observation Unit at Cox South.
The 23,300-square-foot facility provides pre- and post-procedural care for patients facing cardiac and electrophysiology procedures.
“We have seen the need for cardiovascular services grow exponentially in recent months, leading us to decide now was the time to construct this unit,” Becky Watts, administrative director of Cardiovascular Services at CoxHealth, said in a statement. “We believe that this space will greatly benefit our patients, and allow even more people to be treated in a timely manner.”
CoxHealth is a Level I STEMI Center, which provides specialized providers for treatment of heart failure, heart valve and structural disease, heart attacks, and atrial fibrillation.
