Joining forces with nation’s leading heart program
MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute long ago earned the reputation as the best cardiovascular program in the region. In 2013, we forged a unique clinical and research alliance with the nation’s No. 1 heart program, the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute. The relationship has proven to be an excellent vehicle to build on the expertise of their institution and ours.
Between Cleveland Clinic and us, we have seen it all in terms of heart and vascular care. In leveraging both teams’ experience and leadership in the field, we can offer patients throughout the mid-Atlantic region better heart care than ever before.
We share best practices related to patient care, outcomes measurement, quality reporting and clinical research. For example, we worked with Cleveland Clinic to help them design a radial lounge based on our experience and success, and we are consulting with them on the design of our new electrophysiology labs.
The relationship promotes communication between scientists and clinicians for a blended approach to research, and we can offer more patients access to advanced treatments not available anywhere else by pooling our awareness efforts for clinical trials.
