Heart Center Renovations

by -

Upgraded Imaging Technology at the Nassif Heart Center

On Nov. 12, 2000, St. Luke’s opened the new Nassif Heart Center in Cedar Rapids. The 97,126-square-foot, four-floor center was specifically designed and built to serve as the center for St. Luke’s renowned heart care services. St. Luke’s is the leader in heart care services, offering two fully equipped cardiac catheterization labs, an electrophysiology lab, expanded vascular capabilities, and educational facilities for on-going patient support, and a cardiopulmonary rehabilitation area with walking track and specialized exercise equipment. In addition, St. Luke's Heart Center is located near the open-heart OR suites and Imaging, for the most comprehensive center in Cedar Rapids.

Heart Center Equipment Upgrades

As medical technology and innovation improves, enhancements are needed. St. Luke's completed a $5 million renovation of the Heart Center in 2020, which included $3 million in equipment upgrades and a new imaging system, which offers the latest in cardiovascular imaging technology. Patient rooms in the Heart Center were also upgraded, as were the nurse’s station, lobby and staff locker room, and a new consultation area was added.

St. Luke's Nassif Heart Center Lobby

St. Luke's Nassif Heart Center lobby was one of the areas upgraded during the 2020 renovations.

“The renovation began with a need to update our imaging technology in the catheterization labs. Imaging systems typically need to be updated every 10 years or so,” said Casey Greene, vice president and chief operating officer, UnityPoint Health – Cedar Rapids. “As the Cedar Rapids Heart Hospital, we are proud to invest in upgrades to our patient and team member areas.”

Best in the Nation Heart Care Services

St. Luke’s is one of the leading cardiac facilities in Iowa. In 2020, St. Luke’s performed nearly 1,700 diagnostic cardiac catheterizations, 27,000 diagnostic cardiology exams, 500 cardiac interventions, 260 open heart surgeries, 700 electrophysiology procedures and 6,100 outpatient cardiac rehab sessions. In addition, rating agencies, such as Health Grades and IBM Watson regularly rank St. Luke’s among the best in the nation with outstanding quality and patient outcomes.
