Home is Where the Heart Is
The Cardiovascular Institute of Mississippi is the state’s premier Heart Hospital. Dedicated to cardiovascular diagnosis, intervention and wellness, this 60,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is bringing the latest in cardiac care technology, as well as some of the country’s finest physicians, home to McComb. Now residents of southwest Mississippi and northern Louisiana have easy, around the clock access to lifesaving cardiovascular care such as cardiac catheterization, angioplasty and open heart surgery. Not to mention the convenience of full service interventional cardiology care and comprehensive cardiopulmonary wellness and fitness programs.
CIM Facilities: More than just a wing and a prayer
Before plans to build the Cardiovascular Institute of Mississippi ever got off the ground, we were certain of one thing. The area’s need for advanced cardiovascular care was far too great to merely designate a wing of the hospital a "heart center." Without question, our patient base needed and deserved more, much more. And we delivered.
Built from the ground up to rival the country’s preeminent heart centers, the Cardiovascular Institute of Mississippi is a free-standing facility dedicated to offering the very latest technologies used to diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease. No corners were cut. No compromises were made. It is state-of-the-art in every way. From our ultra modern cath labs and cardiothoracic/vascular surgery suites to our “one stop” post surgery and cardiac intervention unit and our rehab and wellness centers, this Heart Hospital is the ideal setting for skilled cardiologists, pulmonologists and cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons to provide care at the highest level.
Cardiothoracic And Vascular Surgery Suites
From a pair of expansive, technologically advanced surgical suites, our seasoned cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons perform a variety of invasive procedures, including traditional open heart surgery and off-pump or beating heart surgery. Given the complexities and high risks associated with cardiothoracic and other related procedures, no expense was spared in equipping these unsurpassed surgical suites. In turn, area residents can not only undergo open heart surgery right here in McComb, but do so in a state-of-the-art environment on a par with any of the country’s leading cardiac care facilities.
In the field of cardiovascular care, the presence of a cath lab is one of the primary capabilities that separates the full service providers from the rest. A cath lab is perhaps the most essential component in the accurate diagnosis and effective treatment of cardiovascular disease. We have three cath labs, each boasting the very latest generation technology and equipment. From any of these three cath labs, our team can provide immediate cardiac testing and, when necessary, on-site catheterization.
Single Setting Care
A relatively new concept in cardiovascular care, we were able to incorporate this innovative care delivery model into our new facility. Rather than carting a patient all over the healthcare complex, all care from diagnosis to intervention to wellness and rehabilitation is administered under one roof. This concept is best evidenced by our “one stop” post surgery and cardiac intervention unit where virtually all cardiac care may be administered, with few exceptions.
It is our goal to provide quality cardiovascular care on a timely basis in an environment designed with the patient’s needs in mind. From free valet parking to spacious and user friendly waiting areas, the comfort and convenience afforded our patients and their families is of utmost concern.
