St. Petersburg, FL - Palms of Pasadena Hospital will be opening a state-of-the-art Cath Lab in October, 2017. We were proud to announce this important service line at our 3rd Annual Health & Wellness Fair. Over 250 attendees visited exhibit booths highlighting health and wellness materials, and information about the hospital’s many service lines.
In addition, 27 community vendors were on-hand to share health related resources. The South Pasadena Fire Department discussed fire safety with the community and the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office presented a K-9 dog demonstration.
To highlight our new Cath Lab, and educate the community on the prevention and treatment of heart disease, we partnered with Sharecare Reality Lab, a leader in visual health, to present 3D virtual demonstrations of the human heart.
The immersive presentations featured a heathy heart, various types of heart disease and the latest medical treatments. With unprecedented visual context, the simulations made viewers feel as if they were inside the human heart. Attendees were also able to explore the lungs and breast.
Participants raved about the 3-D virtual experience with comments like:
“The virtual reality experience was amazing, three dimensional, and very high resolution. It was exactly like being inside the organ. Amazing. It was interesting to see the progressive effects like the progress of disease and how they affected the organ.”
“Love the experience. This is unreal.”
“This was so cool—informative.”
Educating our community on prevention and wellness is one of our key priorities. We were proud to offer our community this cutting-edge experience in virtual technology, and share important healthcare information.
