Nursing: Cardiovasular Speciality
With a commitment to leading edge research, new technology and medical education, KentuckyOne Health Louisville Area touts one of the nation's most comprehensive cardiopulmonary care programs.
The world-renowned Cardiovascular program is consistently ranked among the top hospitals in U.S. News and World Reports and has pioneered a number of medical firsts, including the state’s first adult heart transplant and the world’s first and second AbioCor™ Implantable Artificial Heart surgeries.
Our nurses have the opportunity to work with multidisciplinary teams whose number one focus is “Excellent Patient Outcomes.” Highly skilled and trained, cardiovascular nurses take part in caring for complex cases only happening here, including Ventricular Assist Devices (VAD) used as a bridge to heart transplants or for destination therapy patients.
Other complex procedures nurses take part in every day at include leading edge procedures like the Artic Sun cooling device, which prevents neurological damage after extreme cardiac events and minimally invasive open heart procedures using the DaVinci S Robot and Stereotaxis Gentle Touch systems.
