  • Memorial Performs 50th Adult Heart Transplant

    After living what he describes as a health “rollercoaster” nearly his entire life, Alex Lacroix’s heart finally failed in late September.

    The North Miami resident had been living with end stage heart disease for more than two years, with a previously implanted left ventricular assist device (LVAD) helping his weakened heart pump enough blood to keep him alive.

    But, ultimately, even that technology wasn’t enough.

    “I had no choice but to be hospitalized until I got myself a transplant,” said the married father. “That’s how I ended up here under the care of all the great nurses and doctors who kept me afloat until I could get this wonderful miracle.”

    “Here” was the Memorial Transplant Institute at Memorial Regional Hospital and Lacroix’s “miracle” was the 50th adult heart transplant performed at the Hollywood facility, a successful surgery that took place November 3.

    I-Wen WangAfter a post-surgical stay for observation and recovery, Lacroix was home well before Thanksgiving and will enjoy the holiday season with family and friends. 

    “It (the transplant) was something I was expecting, something I wanted, but when it finally happened, I was like a kid with a new toy. But like a kid with a new toy, you find out you don’t even know how to play with it,” said Lacroix. 

    MCVI was the first facility in Broward County to offer heart transplantation services for adults and the more than 50 lives it has now saved in the past five years represent a significant milestone in the program’s development.

    “This is just one step in what we anticipate our program will become in terms of scope and services we can provide down the road,” said Memorial Healthcare System’s chief of adult heart transplants Dr. I-wen Wang, the cardiac surgeon that performed Lacroix’s procedure.  

    Lacroix’s speedy recovery (he was home just 2½ weeks after transplant) is due, in large part, to a team of specialists that worked on his case before, during, and after surgery. That included advanced heart failure cardiologists that specialize in transplants, cardiologists, electrophysiologists, a dedicated operating room staff, imaging experts, certified nurses, critical care specialists, and a support team that features social workers, psychologists, nutritionists, and pain management specialists.

    It’s a multi-disciplinary approach to total heart care that has delivered South Floridians outcomes that compare to the best in the U.S.  

    While Dr. Wang expects Memorial’s program to reach new heights as it grows and develops, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t appreciate the accomplishment at hand.

    “Every transplant is exciting to me and brings with it its own personal and professional happiness. Each brings a unique sense of personal triumph in how we’re able to help these patients.”

    Memorial ‘Family’ Helps Comedian Survive Brain Tumor

    “It’s actually starting to heal. There’s a scar there. And yeah, young Frankenstein. I’m alive! I’m alive!” jokes south Florida comedian Kyle Grooms, who had surgery at Memorial Neuroscience Institute to remove a benign brain tumor.

    “I’ve been doing standup comedy for 23 years, and thank God for Memorial because I can do it for much longer now,” he said.

    After having a seizure, Kyle was rushed to Memorial with tremors and weakness on his right side. A CAT scan showed a hemorrhage in his brain. Worried that his career and quality of life might be in jeopardy, Kyle trusted his Memorial neurosurgeon Clinton Burkett, MD, who told him surgery was the only option.

    Dr. Burkett performed a successful left frontal craniotomy. Kyle made a full recovery, and he remains impressed with his positive care experience at Memorial.

    “If you have to have a hospital experience, it should be like with family, and I felt like these people were extended family,” Kyle said.

  • Hospital Board Adopts Lowest Millage Rate Ever

    The Board of Commissioners of the South Broward Hospital District, which oversees the operations for Memorial Healthcare System, voted on a new millage rate during its September board meeting.

    The Board voted to adopt a millage rate of 0.1260.

    This is the ninth year in a row that the Board has voted to lower the overall millage rate for the District with 0.1260 resulting in the lowest rate in the history of the South Broward Hospital District. The 0.1260 millage rate represents a 10.92 percent decrease from last year’s rate of 0.1414. The resulting gross tax revenues are estimated to reach $7.8 million.

    “The South Broward Hospital District Board of Commissioners has had a long-standing philosophy of driving down the tax burden on the community, while continuing to deliver outstanding care to our patients and improving the overall health of the population we serve,” said Aurelio M. Fernandez, III, President and CEO, Memorial Healthcare System.

    After accounting for early payment discounts and a certain percentage of uncollectible taxes, the anticipated tax payments this year of $7.5 million will provide the District enough revenue to cover its governmental obligations, which include paying Broward County’s Medicaid Match program and community redevelopment agencies in several municipalities in south Broward County, as well as tax collector commissions and property appraiser fees.

    The newly adopted millage rate will leave no net tax revenue to fund uncompensated care. The District will use operating income to cover all uncompensated care costs for the entire Memorial Healthcare System, including its six hospitals and its eight Memorial Primary Care clinics. In fiscal year 2020, uncompensated care is projected to exceed $1.1 billion.

    This historic reduction comes at a time when Memorial Healthcare System continues to move health forward, seeking ways to better improve the overall health of the population it serves. In addition, it continues to train the doctors and nurses of the future, having welcomed its first class of physician residents through its Graduate Medical Education Program, and its first class of nurse residents.

    In fall of 2018, Memorial’s hospitals scored across-the-board A grades in patient safety from The Leapfrog Group, the national healthcare nonprofit organization that rates nearly 2,500 hospitals across the country in safety. And in December, Leapfrog named Memorial Hospital West and Memorial Hospital Miramar among its 2018 Top Hospitals.

    On the technological front, Memorial enhanced its online scheduling capabilities and installed convenient on-site kiosks, added new tools to Memorial MyChart, and continues its successful “Your Right to Know” initiative – providing consumers with an Amazon-like experience in obtaining medical procedure pricing information.

    Memorial also remains one of only a handful of public hospitals in the nation to achieve AA, Aa3 financial ratings by Standard and Poor’s and Moody’s, respectively.
