The Watchman Device, an alternative to long-term blood thinners to reduce the risk of stroke in patients with Atrial Fibrillation (AF or AFib), is now available at the Sue J. Sword Heart Center at Marian Regional Medical Center.
Congratulations Marian Regional Medical Center for being honored as a CommonSpirit Health LAAO (Watchman) Center of Excellence! Out of 21 CommonSpirit Health LAAO (Watchman) programs, only nine programs met the criteria for designation. Watchman is an implant that effectively reduces the risk of stroke by permanently closing off the left atrial appendage (LAA) to keep blood clots from escaping. The significance of becoming a CommonSpirit Health LAAO (Watchman) Center of Excellence is to ensure the delivery of optimal care for one of the newer technologies available to patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (a-fib). The designation process used pre-determined criteria from four domains of care: quality, research, stewardship, and patient selection. Great work!
