Four Windsor skilled nursing centers were proud co-sponsors of a recent Continuum of Care dinner held for 30 Salinas area cardiologists, internists and general practitioners. Held at Monterey’s Intercontinental Hotel, guests heard keynote speaker Manny Villafana, Chairman and CEO of Kips Bay Medical, trace the transition from the initial heart valve to valves used today. Mr. Villafana also discussed his latest contribution, the eSVS Mesh system for CABG patients.
Windsor is a key player in the Continuum of Care program, partnering with Philips Respironics, Family in Home Caregiving, Alliance Home Health and Care Medical to provide quality and excellence in patient healthcare.
250,000 Americans annually receive a life saving medical device developed by Villafana. An entrepreneur, having first founded a company that revolutionized the pacemaker industry by introducing a long life lithium iodine pacemaker, Villafana subsequently founded St. Jude Medical, Inc., where he led their development of a novel Nitinol heart valve that dominates the mechanical valve replacement market; an exciting development that reduces repeat surgeries.
Windsor is dedicated to sponsoring future Continuum of Care events and to providing the Salinas medical community with information about cutting edge topics.
