Heart & Vascular Center
Cleveland Clinic Akron General
Designed to support multi-specialty physician collaboration and maximize patient comfort and convenience, the Cleveland Clinic Akron General Heart & Vascular Center is unique among area healthcare institutions, bringing multiple cardiovascular services together in one central location and on one floor.
The 64,000 SF renovation, expansion and new construction includes three heart catheterization laboratories located next to the Emergency Department, which increase the speed of diagnosis and intervention for cardiac patients presenting at the ED. In addition, a new 18-bed prep and observation unit provides physician convenience and increased patient comfort and privacy. Other newly renovated areas include cardiac testing, heart pacing and neurology. The new Heart & Vascular Center brings together physicians in cardiology, radiology, neurology, nephrology, pulmonology, and cardiothoracic and vascular surgery who have expertise in cardiovascular disease. This facility is conducive to multi-disciplinary physician interaction and collaboration, which translates into comprehensive quality care for patients.
Patients needing cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation receive treatment in a space enhanced by a wall of windows, which provides an open, airy panoramic view of the outdoors and Akron city skyline. Also new is the Eva P. Craig auditorium and physician education classrooms, offering state-of-the-art conference facilities.
The $16.4 million Heart & Vascular Center provides Cleveland Clinic Akron General, its physicians and patients with the most advanced facility of its kind to meet current and future clinical needs.
