Baptist Health Expands Heart and Vascular Services with New Cardiovascular Care Office in Kendall
MIAMI, FL – July 17, 2023 – Baptist Health Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute announced today that it will be expanding its services in South Florida with a new cardiovascular care office, located on the Baptist Health Baptist Hospital campus in Kendall. Upon completion this summer, the multidisciplinary office will provide streamlined cardiovascular care, with 30 exam rooms, more than 10 medical specialists and a new, innovative arrhythmia center.
Spanning 13,000 square feet, the new cardiovascular care office will be home to cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, interventional cardiologists and electrophysiologists, as well as advanced practice providers. The completion of this new location will further eliminate the need for patients to visit multiple offices for their care, which, in some cases, can delay diagnoses and further treatment.
“This location marks the first cardiovascular care office that we’ve built from the ground up, with a focus on patients’ needs and their desire for convenience,” said Jonathan Fialkow, M.D., chief of cardiology at Baptist Hospital and deputy medical director of Baptist Health Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute, who envisioned this comprehensive care concept. “By bringing each of these specialties together, along with clinical pharmacists, nurse navigators and administrative staff, patients will experience various high-quality heart and vascular services all under one roof.”
The office will also feature a dedicated arrythmia center – the first of its kind in South Florida and one of the few in the United States – providing advanced care for patients with arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia.
The new cardiovascular care office will be located on the sixth floor of the west tower of the Baptist Medical Arts Building on the Baptist Health Baptist Hospital campus.
