Masters
suite (cath lab) on an outpatient basis.
The team at PMC's Cath Lab, which
opened in 2008, maintains an impeccable patient safety and quality record-
among the nation's best. That means
people don't have to travel to benefit
from the latest technology; it's here
at PMC.
PMC's integrated team of experts
includes primary care providers,
emergency medicine providers,

cardiologists and cardiovascular specialists, pulmonologists, neurologists
and radiologists.
And PMC's affiliations with Mayo
Clinic, Nemours Children's Hospital
and other partners means patients
have additional access to expertise
and resources for specialized surgeries
and procedures, including open-heart
surgery, aortic valve replacement and
pediatric cardiology. ■

ROBOT PUTS STROKE
EXPERTS IN THE ROOM
PMC was the first hospital in the region to work with Mayo Clinic Jacksonville
and InTouch Health to pioneer the Remote Presence Robotic System (RP-7) to
further advance its Joint Commission Gold Seal stroke program in 2009. Stroke
neurology assessments are done using a robot that is remotely controlled by a
Mayo Clinic neurologist. The remote physician can view the patient fully; move
the robot around the room as needed; zoom the robot's camera in and out to
assess the patient and his or her responses; and talk directly to the patient,
family members and emergency
department providers.

WHY COME
TO THE PMC
CATH LAB?
The Parrish Medical Center (PMC)
Cath Lab offers inpatient and outpatient
interventional cardiovascular services as
well as noninvasive procedures such as
electrocardiograms, stress tests and echo
vascular tests (ultrasound of the heart
or extremities).
These cardiac catheterization procedures-where a thin, flexible tube
(catheter) is inserted into a blood vessel
leading to the heart to see how well it is
working-can be done through arteries in
the legs or arms.
"The newest procedure that we're
able to do now with smaller catheters is
a below-knee thrombectomy," says Scott
Hamrick, manager of the PMC Cardiac
Cath Lab. "By going into the smaller vessels to remove blood clots, we're able to
help patients with peripheral artery disease save limbs without surgery."
Also, PMC's cardiovascular team
introduced minimally invasive radial
access cardiac catheterization to Brevard
several years ago. Radial access (through
a wrist artery) is proven safer and leads to
faster healing and recovery.
"Our lab techs and cardiologists have
had an excellent track record of same-day
discharges with patient callbacks the next
day to ensure patient safety," says Biju
Mathews, MD, medical director of the
PMC Cardiac Cath Lab. "We provide more
interventional services from venous, pulmonary embolus and peripheral artery
disease treatment than most hospitals in
the area that are larger."
PMC is the first in the nation to be
integrated care network certified by
The Joint Commission and is nationally
recognized as One of America's Finest
Healing Environments.® PMC maintains
top-tier national rankings for clinical
outcomes, safety and patient experience
according to the Center for Medicare
& Medicaid Services, the SafeCare
Group, the Leapfrog Group, the Patient
Safety Movement Foundation and
The Joint Commission.
