At M Health Fairview Southdale Hospital, patients and families have access to some of the area's most advanced heart services at M Health Fairview Southdale Hospital. These include a nationally recognized emergency heart attack program, state-of-the-art imaging services, a women’s heart program, and our CORE program for heart failure and vascular disease management. University of Minnesota Health Heart Care cardiologists and specialists see patients seven days a week at the 6405 France Ave. S building at M Health Fairview Southdale Hospital.
As part of M Health Fairview Southdale Hospital’s Comprehensive Stroke Center, the University of Minnesota Health offers Telestroke technology for patients being evaluated for a stroke. This technology allows stroke specialists to evaluate the patient and plan treatment even when the doctors are miles away. With telestroke technology, it enables neurologists to coordinate with the on-site care team and examine patients in real time via video conferencing and review the results of brain-imaging tests conducted in a patient’s local emergency department. Doctors have the ability to manipulate the camera position remotely—which helps when examining patients and diagnosing stroke symptoms—and can review the results of brain-imaging tests conducted in the local emergency department.
