INTEGRIS Advanced Cardiac Care is the only ventricular assist device program in Oklahoma. Ventricular assist devices (VADs) are blood pumps which take over some or all of the function of the heart in people suffering from heart failure or who are awaiting a heart transplant. In conjunction with the Nazih Zuhdi Transplant Institute’s heart transplant program and the INTEGRIS Heart Hospital, INTEGRIS offers the most comprehensive heart failure program in Oklahoma.
OKC's Best Option for Treatment of Heart Failure
INTEGRIS Advanced Cardiac Care was awarded Joint Commission certification in August 2008. With this approval, our program offer VADs for destination therapy, that is, implantation of a VAD as a definitive treatment for heart failure. "We're proud to achieve this distinction" says Dr. James Long, director of the VAD program.
INTEGRIS Advanced Cardiac Care is conveniently located on the campus of INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center. Parking is available right in front of the building (Physician's Building C) or in the parking garage located right off of N.W. Expressway.
