Shipley Cardiothoracic Center – Added Advanced Provider Positions to the office setting.

As a center of excellence, we strive to ensure the best outcome for each patient. Many of our patient population have complex medical problems. We know that we can provide great care through holistic patient assessment. A patient’s risk for surgery is defined by potentially modifiable factors. Advanced Providers play a vital role in reviewing the patients’ medical history and current clinical condition. Many of our patients benefit from optimization of other chronic illnesses prior to undergoing cardiac or thoracic surgery. Common areas of optimization include cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, anemia, endocrine, malnutrition, infectious processes, cognitive dysfunction, frailty, and even emotional readiness. Optimization for CT surgery patients occur at the inpatient and outpatient phases of care. Attention to detail makes a tremendous difference in the patient experience. Each patient has unique medical, emotional, and psychosocial elements to their current condition that makes a great impact on the overall care provided in terms of patient safety. Shipley unprecedented strength comes from the staff connection to the patient, teamwork and shared goal to deliver high quality care.
