The new endovascular suite at Saint Joseph Hospital, Lexington, KY, combines the technology of a minimally invasive cath lab and an open heart operating room.

Saint Joseph Hospital, Lexington, Ky., opened a new endovascular suite in its surgical services area. The new suite offers minimally invasive alternatives to standard open surgical operations in caring for patients with a broad range of vascular disorders. Because the suite is in Saint Joseph’s surgical services area, the equipment to perform an open surgery is in the physician’s reach if a simple endovascular procedure becomes more complex. “It combines the technology of a minimally invasive cath lab and an open heart operating room in one,” said Dewayne Gossett, director of surgical services for Saint Joseph HealthCare.
