UT Southwestern Medical Center, already nationally recognized for
excellence in patient care, research, education and technological
innovation, is poised to take all of those areas to the next level when
it opens the William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital on campus later
this year. Transplant patients, as well as physicians, surgeons, and
all supporting team members, will benefit from the hospital’s
transplant-specific features, which are based on best practices gathered
from the nation’s top clinical facilities. Among these features:
- In-room monitors, allowing patients and their caregivers to review charts and images, such as X-rays, CT scans and MRIs.
- In-room videoconferencing enabling patients to communicate virtually with members of their care team, family and friends.
- Robotics in the operating rooms allowing for highly precise and minimally invasive procedures, including nephrectomies.
- Surgical suites connected by live video to pathology laboratories for real-time collaboration among care team members.
