January 13 2022 – As reported by Delray Medical Center this marks another milestone becoming the first hospital in Palm Beach County to use the new Ensite X EP System for cardiovascular EP procedures.  This technology uses HD images to collect data providing accurate and linear visualization for physicians to map out any area of the heart.  Electrophysiologist Dr. Yoel Vivas was the first physician in the county to use this new system at the hospital.
