North Bay Business Journal

Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital last week implanted an MRI-safe pacemaker into a patient, making it the first hospital north of the Golden Gate Bridge to do so, according to the hospital and the medical device maker.

Minneapolis-based Medtronic, whose cardiovascular division is based in Santa Rosa, created the Revo MRI SureScan pacing system, which the company said is the only pacemaker in the country designed for use in an MRI environment.
