National Park Medical Center and the Heart and Vascular Center of Central Arkansas are home to a dedicated Cardiovascular Surgery Suite (CVOR) used to perform a variety of heart procedures, including bypass surgeries, heart valve repairs and replacements, minimally invasive and open aortic aneurysm repairs, endovascular procedures and more. It was made possible by a capital investment from LifePoint Health, of which NPMC is a part.
“Our cardiovascular surgery suite is equipped with the latest in cardiac operating room technology and is on par with the best surgical suites in the country. Having enhanced visibility to view the pumping of the heart, identify any blockages and see inside the heart before and during the surgery improves our ability to achieve optimal patient outcomes. We are excited to take this next step to further improve the heart health of our region.” ~ Dr. Daniel McCoy, cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon
