Our Cardiac Progressive Care Unit (CPCU) is a 35 bed cardiovascular stepdown unit.
We specialize in advanced heart failure, heart transplants, specialized cardiac surgeries such as TAVRs, and LVAD patients. We work very closely with CVICU because our patient population goes back and forth between us and CVICU.
The nurse to patient ratio is 1:4
What sets us apart from other progressive care or cardiac units is that we have a very specialized cardiac population. If you enjoy complex cardiac cases that involve IV cardiac drips and critical thinking this is the unit. We have an amazing team with many years of experience.
The culture on the unit is very positive and the staff treat each other like family. They are always planning off-site get togethers for team building.
