Englewood Hospital and Medical Center is pleased to offer “The Institute for Patient Blood Management and Bloodless Medicine and Surgery at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center”, the structured program in the region for providing bloodless care. Englewood Hospital and Medical Center has been providing patients with high quality health care for well over a century.
Through The Institute for Patient Blood Management and Bloodless Medicine and Surgery, we at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center are proud to offer a progressive approach to blood management to all patients in our care. Our use of safe and effective transfusion-free medical and surgical techniques reduces the many risks that are associated with blood transfusions.
The Institute’s goals are to improve patient outcomes, respect the needs of patients for whom blood transfusion is not an option, and educate other medical professionals in how Patient Blood Management can improve medical and surgical outcomes for all healthcare consumers.
Since its inception in 1994, The Institute for Patient Blood Management and Bloodless Medicine and Surgery at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center has established itself as a world-recognized leader in patient blood management.
Physicians from every discipline have been specially trained and practice bloodless medicine and surgery at the Institute. Tens of thousands of patients from the US and abroad have received medical treatment and undergone highly complex procedures such as brain, open-heart, orthopedic and gastrointestinal surgeries without blood transfusions at Englewood Hospital.
Medical professionals from leading institutions across the country and throughout the world have come to the Medical Center to learn how our physicians use proven, effective alternatives to blood transfusion to improve patient outcomes. The U.S. government as well as governments of other countries have consulted with Englewood Hospital to learn how to apply blood management techniques in dealing with catastrophic situations when little or no blood is available.
