The Interventional Neuroradiology Suite, led by Dr. Lazlo Miskolczi, increases the intravenous acute stroke treatment window to eight hours – a great improvement over the usual zero to three hours. These additional five hours could save many lives. Epilepsy is the most common chronic neurological disorder. The epilepsy monitoring unit at Holy Cross Hospital houses state-of-the-art digital equipment. Holy Cross and South Florida epilepsy expert Dr. Eduardo Locatelli opened a four-bed epilepsy monitoring unit in January 2008, which houses the region’s most sophisticated diagnostic technology for epilepsy. Here, Dr. Locatelli and the clinical staff are able to monitor and assist with the diagnosis of complicated seizure cases while patients stay in comfortable private rooms in a medically supervised environment. Help us continue potentially life-saving advancements like these by making a gift today.
Women's Health Technology
The Jeane M. Dorini Imaging & Diagnostic Suite at the Dorothy Mangurian Comprehensive Women’s Center offers state-of-the-art technology for women’s healthcare. The suite offers digital mammography, breast needle localization, stereotactic breast core biopsies, galactograms, bone densitometry, ultrasonography and breast MRIs. You can make a donation designated toward these types of technological advancements that further women’s healthcare.
At the Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Center at Holy Cross, we offer the latest in high-tech cardiac care. We were the first Florida hospital to acquire the PRIME ECG, which offers potentially superior diagnostic capabilities, allowing physicians to gather critical cardiac information which may not be visible with the traditional 12-lead ECG. We are also the first Florida hospital to offer the 256 iCT for Cardiac CT Angiography. This provides doctors and patients a powerful tool in assessing heart disease and heart attack risk, providing the most detailed images of the heart allowing detection of life-threatening illnesses before they become life threatening. In addition, we have equipment that provides induced hypothermia, regular and stress echocardiography, nuclear stress tests, holter monitors, tilt table testing, cardiac catheterization, peripheral angiography and vascular ultrasounds and comprehensive electrophysiologic testing. We also have the only NOGA Imaging Systems in South Florida, which is essential to adult stem cell and other research. You can make a donation designated toward these types of technological advancements for cardiac care.
As part of the Michael and Dianne Bienes Comprehensive Cancer Center’s commitment to aggressively treat cancer while preserving patient quality of life, we offer the state-of-the-art Elekta Synergy® S. This is a radiation treatment system with an integrated 3D imaging system that allows physicians to more precisely target tumors with radiation beams. Elekta Synergy S provides unmatched clinical confidence to more aggressively treat tumors, lesions and malformations throughout the body, as well as sites in the brain, while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Read more about it here and please consider making a donation designated toward this type of technological advancement for cancer care.
The Holy Cross Orthopedic Institute was the first in the world to offer MAKOplasty, a minimally invasive partial knee resurfacing procedure used to treat early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee. In addition, we are the first hospital in Florida to offer patients multicompartmental knee resurfacing. The new MAKO RIOTM robotic arm system allows our expert surgeons to keep as much of the original knee as possible, while the MAKO Restoris system restores natural knee function. The RIO System now makes possible resurfacing of the medial, patellofemoral, or both components of the knee. Through the use of these types of robotic surgical systems, surgeons are able to performcomplex surgical procedures with minimal pain, shorter recovery times and minimalscarring. Help us continue to provide these important technological advancements by donating today.
Nurses and clinicians can learn procedures and protocols using simulated models of people in our upcoming Simulation Center. Our healthcare professionals currently utilize Sim Man, who mimicks real human conditions and emergencies of a male including heart attacks, stroke and commas and complications that may arise throughout, such as cardiac arrest. In a project that will be funded through philanthropy in four phases, an entire Center of simulation males, females and children will be created to help prepare healthcare professionals. We urge you to consider funding this important initiative for the advancement of the nursing profession.
