Spire Cardiff Hospital is the leading provider of private healthcare in South Wales. Ensuring that we maintain our extremely high standards, we continually drive innovation and investment into our 66 bedded hospital.
As part of our growth and development we are delighted to announce our specialised Cardiac Catheterisation suite which we hope will be fully functional from early March 2014. This theatre will allow the hospital to develop its scope of practice to include cardiac angiography, cardiac angioplasty and stenting, whilst also developing a private electrophysiology service and cardiac failure clinic.
This is an exciting time for the hospital as this will be the only private hospital in Wales with this leading edge technology. Dr Nick Gerning Consultant Cardiologist and cardiology lead says, "It is a privilege that Spire Healthcare has the confidence to invest in us as clinicians. This type of technology will allow our private patients opportunity access to this cardiac diagnostic facility within a private hospital setting, which will support both our diagnostic capability and our therapeutic management of our patients."
Sarah Lloyd-Davies Head of Clinical Services, states: "We worked hard as a hospital to build our reputation in both cardiology and cardiac surgery, with this facility in place we will now be able to deliver end to end care for patient with cardiac disease. This should provide patient with confidence in the clinical care they will receive at Spire Cardiff Hospital."
Spire Cardiff Hospital successfully launched the cardiac surgery service three years ago with its new Intensive care unit and now undertakes a mix of complex surgical procedures including coronary artery vein graphs and valve repair and replacements.
This 2.9 million development will also makes a significant contribution to the local community with the contracts going to local firms to undertake the building development.
Nicola Amery Hospital Director says, "I’m also pleased that any project such as this also creates new job opportunities which in the current economic climate is a positive message to the local work force. Whilst most of these will be specialist roles such as, clinical physiology and radiology, there are also openings for nursing staff. We are continually looking to drive our clinical capabilities and therefore are delighted to be in this very positive position."
