The Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute (TCAI) at St. David’s Medical Center now has a state-of-the-art Electrophysiology Center dedicated to treating patients with cardiac arrhythmias, including A Fib.
“The need for specialized care for patients with cardiac rhythm disorders has increased tremendously,” Dr. Andrea Natale, executive medical director of TCAI and national medical director of cardiac electrophysiology for HCA Healthcare, said. “The newly expanded space will allow us to better serve our patients who come from all across North America, in addition to a growing number of people traveling to Austin from Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East seeking care at TCAI.”
The new 72,000-square-foot center includes six electrophysiology labs, each equipped with the latest technology to treat complex arrhythmias; a dozen dedicated beds for pre-procedure preparation; eight beds for post-procedure recovery; 20 private patient rooms; and four private patient suites with adjoining family suites.
Led by Dr. Natale, a preeminent global leader in electrophysiology, TCAI is one of the largest electrophysiology practices in the U.S., providing unparalleled experience, expertise and exceptional care. With this incomparable combination, TCAI successfully treats thousands of patients each year, restoring their quality of life.
