Carle Tower fully occupied with all Carle Heart and Vascular Institute Services and 136 private hospital rooms

URBANA, Ill., Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Carle Foundation Hospital's new 400,000 square foot bed tower also home to Carle Heart and Vascular Institute is now fully occupied. Physicians are seeing patients in the Heart and Vascular Institute and hospital inpatients are in new, state of the art single rooms. 

"Carle Tower will allow us to elevate the level of care today and ensure that the community's future healthcare needs can be met," said James C. Leonard, MD, president and chief executive officer, The Carle Foundation. "This investment allows us to meet increasing demand and ever-changing patient needs."

Anchored by Carle Heart and Vascular Institute, Carle Tower is home to the largest heart center in downstate Illinois. All services are now under one roof where patients can be seen for testing, treatment, hospital and follow-up care. Carle now also offers the transcatheter aortic valve replacement or TAVR procedure, which is an advanced treatment for patients who are not ideal candidates for open heart surgery. The treatment helps alleviate symptoms of heart failure and saves patient lives. Carle Heart and Vascular Institute is one of few facilities in Illinois approved to offer TAVR.

"This move furthers our ongoing commitment to extend our national-caliber heart program by bringing together experts and technology to achieve the best outcomes for our patients," said Matthew Gibb, MD, medical director of Carle Heart and Vascular Institute. "The added resources will allow us to recruit top physicians bringing more advanced care to central Illinois."

Each room in Carle Tower is a single patient room.  Patients will appreciate on-site ground level parking with a covered drop off and valet parking.  Spacious rooms allow new technology and equipment to be easily moved about and each room includes a sleeper sofa allowing loved ones to be near at all hours to enhance patient healing and reduce recovery time. Families will also benefit from large and comfortable waiting areas with amenities to meet their needs

The facility includes an installation from local artists with two mosaics; one includes images of all of Carle's buildings in each community it serves, as well as personal and historic images from the region.  In what will bring a smile to many faces, the second mosaic includes artwork by pediatric patients and employees' children.

Carle Tower took 24-months to build and cost approximately $220 million, financed through cash and municipal bonds. The tower connects to Carle's existing facilities on every level. In the future, the building could be expanded by building out shell space on the top floor and by adding two additional floors above.  The building will also connect to Carle's Emergency Department, which is currently under expansion and is scheduled to open in 2014.
