The section performs ~ 15,000 procedures (7,600 patient encounters) per year. Facilities at the 545 bed tertiary care hospital and level one trauma center include four dedicated procedure suites including state-of-the-art cone beam-CT and rotational angiography. Procedures are also performed in adjacent CT and in the operating room when appropriate. A six-bay observation unit is adjacent to the procedural area and provides streamlined care for outpatients. In December 2016 the section will be moving to a new procedure space with state of the art angio equipment as well as enlarged patient holding rooms and adjacent clinic space. The section emphasizes a collaborative approach to patient care through close working relationships with medical and surgical services.
