ProHealth Care opens new heart and vascular center on Waukesha hospital campus
The announcement below was made in October 2018. In January 2019, ProHealth Care and UW Health announced that they are now collaborating to enhance the advanced heart and vascular services available to ProHealth patients. The new center was officially named the UW Health Heart & Vascular Center at ProHealth Care.
ProHealth Care’s new heart and vascular center brings together outpatient services on the campus of ProHealth Waukesha Memorial Hospital.
Patients visit the center for cardiac and vascular diagnostics, provider office visits and consultations, and cardiac rehabilitation.
Heart and vascular surgery, related interventional services and inpatient care continue to be provided within the hospital.
A centerpiece of the new center is a cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation gym. It includes:
A two-lane walking track.
37 pieces of exercise and therapy equipment.
A lateral stability trainer and parallel bars for strengthening hips and knees.
Stations for patients to self-check blood pressure.
Space for yoga and strength-training classes.
Patient locker rooms with showers.
The new center also includes 28 patient exam rooms, large consultation rooms for family conferences, and ProHealth atrial fibrillation and arrhythmia programs.
Diagnostic and monitoring services in the building include:
Stress testing with nuclear scanning capability. ProHealth’s new system has faster scan times and a reduced nuclear dose.
Cardiac and vascular ultrasound.
Electronic medical device monitoring.
Also featured in the new center is a demonstration kitchen with a classroom.
Services are provided by a team of more than 300 professionals. Among them are cardiologists, cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, cardiac rehabilitation experts, specialized nurses and other professionals.
In addition to Waukesha Memorial, heart and vascular services also are provided at ProHealth Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital and the ProHealth Medical Group clinics in Brookfield, New Berlin, Mukwonago, Muskego, Oconomowoc and Pewaukee.
