PHOENIX (January 7 , 2013) – Abrazo Health announced today that Phoenix Baptist Hospital is now home to a new state - of - the - art Neuroscience expansion. The new suite will include all the latest equipment, including a Biplane Neuroangiography System. The Biplane Neuroangiography technology will allow surgeons to deliver potentially life - saving care to patients with speed and accuracy by providing enhanced visualizations of the brain and spine, treatment that reduces the risk of additional problems and will also expedite recovery.
This latest move by Phoenix Baptist Hospital adds to an already banner year, further advancing the care patients in need of neurological care. Earlier this year, the hospital was once again honored with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines® - Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award. The hospital has also earned honors of being placed on the Target Stroke: Honor Roll for a second year in recognition for their commitment to turning patient guidelines into lifelines.
Right now in the U.S., stroke is the fourth leading cause o f death among adults, and someone suffers from a stroke in this country every forty seconds, making need for such a technologically advanced center even greater. Dan Jones, CEO of Phoenix Baptist Hospital says, “This new neurosciences care suite is just further proof of our commitment to the best in quality care for the patients here in the valley and across the southwest. Stroke patients, head injury patients and spine injury patients will have access to the latest in technology and trained physicians here at Phoenix Baptist and our entire staff couldn’t be more excited to be bringing this all to the community.”
