Translating Research into Patient Care

Suburban Hospital’s ability to translate medical research findings into direct patient care is what sets us apart. We participate with Johns Hopkins Medicine and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) studies in groundbreaking research and put it into practice quickly and seamlessly.

Scientists involved in the NIH-Suburban Hospital Cardiac Research Initiative have been using normal volunteers and chest-pain patients from Suburban Hospital's Emergency/Trauma Center to evaluate numerous methods to diagnose heart attacks faster and more accurately.

The initial results suggest that MRI technology fulfills that objective, paving the way for faster treatment that could reduce or prevent permanent heart damage. The NIH-Suburban Hospital study lays the groundwork for what could be a dramatic change in how heart attacks are diagnosed and how rapidly patients receive treatment.
