Munroe Regional continues to make a profound impact on the quality of life in our community. We are the sole provider of obstetrical services in Marion County, with nearly 3,000 births annually. We are also the sole provider of hospital pediatrics care.
Cardiovascular disease is the primary burden of illness in Marion County, and Munroe Regional has responded to this need by developing a nationally recognized heart program over the last 20 years. From inception in 1988, our open-heart surgery program has performed over 11,000 procedures with outcomes that rival the best in the nation. Our cardiac catheterization program is recognized as the #1 Cath Program in Florida for Coronary Interventions for the second straight year and top 4% in the nation by HealthGrades.
Support for the care of the most ill patients is vital to the health of any community and our intensive care units are recognized as among the best in the nation. The Association of Critical Care Nurses has awarded Munroe Regional's ICU with their Beacon Award as a best in class program. Only five organizations in the country, and none in Florida, have equaled this achievement. Beginning in 2009, our intensive care units will be enhanced by maintaining a critical care trained physician in the units on a continuous, 24 hours a day basis. Few hospitals can provide this kind of service.
Quality is not an outcome, but is a journey.
