Our passion to improve patient care also drives our innovation. This year, UF Health Jacksonville became the first hospital in the world to implant a regenerative bio envelope with a cardiac defibrillator. One of our UF Health cardiologists worked with a vendor to create the tailor-made pouch, which prevents a patient’s body from having an inflammatory response or causing calcification around the device.
This level of innovation and collaboration is how UF Health continues to positively impact patients and improve health care. It is through your ingenuity that we will solve many of our most pressing health-related problems. Through our commitment to transform lives, prevent disease and restore people to full physical and mental health, we can make the delivery of care more effective — and efficient.
