Support the Heart and Vascular Center

Heart and Vascular Center

South Carolina has one of the highest death rates from heart disease, and our citizens suffer heart attacks at a younger age than those in many other states. Nearly one South Carolinian in two will die from heart and vascular problems.

To address this epidemic, the Medical University has developed a cardiovascular capability that ranks among America’s finest. Ours is the only comprehensive cardiovascular center in the state, offering the latest advances in pediatric and adult cardiology, interventional radiology, cardiovascular surgery and heart transplantation. Our cardiac program also includes programs in disease prevention, research, professional teaching, public health and community education.

The Heart & Vascular Center has great potential for growth in both basic research pertinent to cardiovascular disease and in clinical programs. Because the Medical University receives just 6.4 percent of its annual budget through state appropriations, private support will play a key role in our ability to fulfill this potential.
