Why Doctors + Patients Choose the CVC

We know that choosing a hospital for your cardiac care can be an intimidating process. Here are a few reasons why patients and their doctors choose the Cardiovascular Center at Tufts Medical Center in downtown Boston for their cardiac care:

  • Over the last 5 years, we've preformed more heart transplants than any other hospital in Boston. 
  • The Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Association (HCMA) named Tufts Medical Center one of only four “Centers of Excellence” in the treatment of this condition, which can profoundly affect quality of life and lead to heart failure. 
  • The Medical Center’s collaborative approach and commitment to bringing together the perfect combination of specialists to treat any heart condition provide you with access to leading doctors in Cardiology, Cardiac Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Interventional Radiology and Anesthesiology.
  • For decades, the CVC has been the source of major advances in cardiovascular care, with doctors and scientists engaged in a wide range of groundbreaking clinical and basic science research.
  • Our expertise includes the latest advancements in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart disease. For example, the CVC was the first department of its kind in New England to surgically implant the HeartWare® Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) in patients.
