Our mission is to provide the highest standard of cardiovascular clinical care to our community, training for the next generation of leaders in Cardiovascular Medicine while also promoting scientific discovery.

Our patient care enterprise consists of physicians and staff dedicated to comprehensively addressing our patients’ needs in acute cardiovascular medical care, disease prevention, and education.  Patient care is provided at the University, Memorial, and Marlboro Hospitals of UMass Memorial Health. Our Division has the most extensive service line of the Heart and Vascular Center of Excellence (Cardiovascular Medicine, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Cardiac Anesthesiology). The Heart and Vascular Center is geared to integrate all cardiovascular services in a unified center of excellence, providing a truly collaborative environment that promotes teamwork amongst all specialists to deliver advanced care for patients with cardiac and vascular conditions. Our Division has embraced a team-based approach involving physicians, physicians assistants, nurse practitioners, critical care nurses, nurse educators, nutritionists, and behavioral counselors to provide the best possible outcomes to our patient population.
