Banner Heart Hospital in Mesa has opened a new heart care clinic, adding more areas for open-heart and vascular surgery, catheterization procedures and patient recovery.
The $29.8 million expansion will add two operating rooms, one catheterization lab and one electrophysiology lab. The plan also features vacant space for future use as catheterization labs.
The hospital already performs more than 6,000 catheterization procedures annually and more than 800 open-heart surgeries, making it the busiest open-heart center in the state, according to Banner Health. It is also home to a robotic surgery program with more than 300 procedures already completed.
