Heart & Vascular Care

We believe that every patient, and every condition, merits the same comprehensive approach,delivered with compassionate care.

As one of the highest-volume heart and vascular programs in the United States, we understand quality isn’t necessarily measured by quantity. Numerous studies have shown that there is no substitute for experience. Indiana University Health Cardiovascular treats more heart and vascular patients than any other program in Indiana. IU Health Cardiovascular provides comprehensive services and is also a state and regional referral resource for the most complex, advanced heart, lung, and vascular disease problems. We encompass a rich tradition of providing cutting-edge care, including having performed the first private hospital cardiac transplant in the world, developed the technology that led to ultrasound of the heart, and being the first to invent and develop an implantable cardioverter.

IU Health Cardiovascular, in association with the Indiana University School of Medicine – one of the nation’s top-ranked academic teaching hospitals – is at the forefront of care, offering patients:

  • The most advanced heart and vascular care in the state, backed up by years of experience in successfully implementing new life-saving techniques
  • A broad spectrum of care, from the most common case to the most complex, through every subsequent stage of treatment and recovery
  • Multidisciplinary specialists, collaborating to deliver comprehensive treatment options for whole body health
  • Level One Emergency Programs that assure coordination and speed when you are faced with an emergency
  • Communication processes that keep your family physician informed at every stage of your care

There’s simply no substitute for experience. Facilities alone don’t produce great patient outcomes. IU Health Cardiovascular has both premier facilities and highly experienced heart and vascular care staff. With scores of state and national “firsts” in both pediatric and adult heart and vascular services, we treat the most complex cases – before birth and every day afterwards.

IU Health Cardiovascular provides comprehensive treatments—our highly skilled physicians excel at treating patients with the most common to the most complex conditions.
