Shipley Cardiothoracic Center Expansion Builds on Revolutionary Approach to Heart, Lung Care

Shipley Cardiothoracic Center has officially opened its doors, ushering in a new phase for cardiothoracic care in Southwest Florida. The center, located at HealthPark Medical Center, is an innovative approach to the surgical treatment of heart and lung diseases with an emphasis on innovation, education and research.

Through cutting-edge treatment and dedication to patient care, the Shipley Center has made a difference in the lives of thousands of patients.
The 13,290 square-foot Shipley Center expansion establishes an innovation hub focused on patient care optimization, research, and learning opportunities for surgical clinical teams worldwide. The Shipley Center aims to improve patient outcomes through an in-depth understanding of individual patient risk factors, co-morbidities and personal health needs before surgery. The center will also include a component of health education to help patients understand how to stay healthy and potentially avoid surgery.
The center was made possible by an initial $2.5 million gift from Shipley Foundation, Inc., headed by Richard C. Shipley of Sanibel, and additional funds were raised through community donations.
The expansion also includes an educational conference center for surgeons and health care professionals that come from across the country to train with our team. This hub provides live-case teaching, simulators and destination and distance learning opportunities for health care professionals.
