The 472,000-square-foot pavilion combines the latest in technological advances with a focus on patient care to allow UC Davis to meet a growing community’s critical health needs. The new structure includes the Michael W. Chapman Emergency and Trauma Center, technology-enabled surgery suites that allow UC Davis surgical teams to collaborate with experts around the world in real-time using audio and video streaming capabilities, a world-class cardiovascular center, an expanded Firefighters Burn Institute Regional Burn Center, a robotic-enabled pathology laboratory, and advanced imaging services. The addition of the Surgery and Emergency Services Pavilion to UC Davis Medical Center ensures that UC Davis is well positioned now, and for decades to come, to care for the individuals and families it serves, whether they are in the Sacramento region, across the country or around the globe.
The need is significant. More than 81 million Americans over age 20 have one or more types of cardiovascular disease such as high blood pressure, coronary heart disease or congestive heart failure. Peripheral vascular disease is estimated to affect up to 10 million Americans. UC Davis Health System is improving cardiovascular health through state-of-the-art patient care, cutting-edge research, education and outreach.
