Ellis Hospital Senior Director for Cardiovascular Services Jeff Winacott said "By allowing us to do these new higher procedures certainly the reimbursement is a lot higher, often times those types of procedures lead to additional procedures. So the hospital gains both from a financial perspective, from a technology perspective, and it also helps us recruit better physicians."

The hospital also suggests the suite will help physicians and staff to better diagnose and treat patients who suffer from heart arrhythmias, and related disorders.
