Cardiac Universal Bed Unit

An Innovative Model of Care

The Henry Ford Allegiance Heart and Vascular Center was designed to promote healing. It features an innovative model of care called the Cardiac Universal Bed (CUB) Unit, which emphasizes patient safety and comfort, family privacy and modern technology. The special design of this unit allows you to stay in the same room from the time you leave surgery until you return home. This eliminates the physical stress and inconvenience of moving to different areas of the hospital.

Your care in the CUB Unit is more personalized, because you see the same physicians, physician assistants, nurses and staff throughout your stay. This promotes a consistent level of care that is proven to be safer for patients and decrease the length of their hospital stay.

Eating one or two servings of fish rich in Omega-3 fatty acids per week, like salmon or tuna, decreases your risk for heart disease and even heart attack.
