Will the new Heart and Vascular Institute have a full time, permanent cardiac surgeon, or will a temporary, part-time surgeon from Stanford come down? Will the Camino Medical Group patients be required to use this Institute instead of their new office building?
The hospital is currently working those details out. According to what they told me, the heart and vascular staff - including doctors, surgeons, nurses, technicians, etc. - have agreed to work together more closely. It's a merging of resources. They will also have offices and spaces located more closely together in the new hospital so they can coordinate better.
I have not heard anything about Camino Medical Group patients being required to use different facilities.
Hope this helps.
Susan, Thanks for the info, but you didn't answer my question concerning a new heart surgeon, or whether the new institute will continue to have a temporary cardiac surgeon from Stanford. Is that the way the institute at Massachussetts General does it? Also, I didn't realize the cardiologists were moving their offices to the institute. They haven't notified their patients yet of the move.
You have some great questions.
Hopefully someone from the hospital would be kind enough to answer your questions on this community forum.
I do not have the answers at this time.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
