Focusing on population health

Caring for the people of South Florida begins with a focus on population health, which is a medical approach that addresses common conditions and lifestyle factors among a specific community, in order to best prevent and treat prevalent disease states.

Knowing what services that local residents need most informs our investments in healthcare Centers of Excellence – like the Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute, for example. It’s here that we provide a TotalHEART Care Program known for high-quality services and excellent outcomes.

A key component of TotalHEART Care is treating acquired heart disease in adults suffering from cardiac conditions exacerbated by age, lifestyle habits and genetics. The fact that our population requires these types of services is not unusual in a diverse community anywhere in America today.

We also do very delicate work in pediatric cardiovascular medicine, caring for children of all ages who have congenital heart abnormalities. The Memorial team can even perform heart surgery while a child is still in the womb. The sophistication and magnitude of our services never ceases to amaze me!

The people who follow this career path – Nurses, Surgical Technologists, and Echocardiography Technologists – are uniquely skilled and highly valued. If you have experience in and passion for cardiac care, I encourage you to read on and see how you can join us.
