Heart Care

The Beat Goes On:


Welcome to the DMC Heart Hospital from
Detroit Medical Center on Vimeo.
 
Heart Care in the Midwest
This completely new structure is the home to DMC Cardiovascular Institute, as well Cardio Team One. As Michigan’s first and only heart hospital, DMC Heart Hospital changes the way cardiac care is delivered. Unlike other hospitals and institutions, DMC Heart Hospital is a unique collaboration of specialists. Cardiologists, Cardiac Surgeons and Vascular Surgeons all work together, in a single place with a single goal: To provide extraordinary, immediate care to patients suffering from all forms of heart disease and vascular disease.

DMC Heart Hospital, right here, in the heart of Detroit, the city we’ve served for a century and a half. In 1863, DMC was here, providing care to the new heart of industrial America. A century later, the world’s first mechanical heart was built, tested and launched here. And in 2014, the new DMC Heart Hospital opened a new era, dedicated to keeping the heart of Detroit as strong as ever.

LEVEL 1 Interventional Cardiology
Diagnostic/Therapeutic Cardiac Catheterization
DMC Heart Hospital specialists offer minimally invasive, therapeutic heart and vascular catheterization procedures. Our physicians are leaders in clinical research, helping to develop new techniques and devices to improve patient outcomes. They also train doctors nationwide in the latest minimally invasive procedures.

Electrophysiology (EP)

The DMC Cardiovascular Institute provides state of the art electrophysiology services, including pacemaker and defibrillator implants, lead extractions and advanced ablation procedures for rhythm disturbances such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter and ventricular tachycardia.


What You’ll See

Level 1 will have two labs for EP, two catheterization labs and two swing labs. The space also will have 16 prep/recovery bays to take care of patients before and after their procedure. A dedicated family waiting will provide ample comfortable seating with window views.


LEVEL 2 Noninvasive Cardiology

Nuclear Medicine

Our physicians use cardiac nuclear medicine studies to evaluate the presence and extent of suspected or known coronary artery disease, to determine the extent of injury to the heart following a heart attack, to evaluate the results of bypass surgery or other revascularization procedures designed to restore blood supply to the heart, and evaluate heart-wall movement and overall heart function with a technique called cardiac gating.


What You’ll See

Level 2 will have designated testing rooms for EKG, echocardiogram, stress echocardiogram and TEE procedures. Patients will have a private changing area before proceeding to a testing room. A separate waiting area is located within the department for patients undergoing nuclear medicine testing.  The prep/recovery area has 11 bays to receive inpatients prior to receiving a procedure. A dedicated family waiting will provide ample comfortable seating with window views.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the state of Michigan, and the nation. That’s why Detroit Medical Center has dedicated powerful resources to creating cardiac care centers that lead the region in research and care.

Our leading edge technology and facilities allow our team of cardiovascular specialists to deliver a full spectrum of services. From advanced diagnostics that allow our doctors to see the heart like never before, to an array of minimally invasive procedures designed to allow our DMC heart specialists to treat the problem with reduced pain, scarring and recovery time.

From the Pediatric Heart Specialists at DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan to the experts of DMC Cardio Team One, DMC cardiovascular care is always there.

It’s why we created DMC Cardio Team One, the only place in the state where heart specialists are on site, not “on call.” When you come to DMC Harper University Hospital, DMC Detroit Receiving Hospital and DMC SInai-Grace Hospital with a cardiac emergency, our specialists are ready and waiting to begin care, 24/7, every day of the year.

Vascular Care and Vascular Surgery
Vascular Care refers to care and treatment of the system through which the flow of blood transports oxygen and nutrients to and from organs, muscles and tissue throughout the body. When something interrupts the essential functions of the vascular system, you may need to see a DMC vascular disease specialist or vascular surgeon. DMC Vascular physicians manage diseases and conditions of the circulatory system. The most common conditions they treat are: Vascular Care refers to care and treatment of the system through which the flow of blood transports oxygen and nutrients to and from organs, muscles and tissue throughout the body.
