Cardiac Surgery

In a typical year, the Heart & Vascular Institute performs more than 1,000 cardiac surgeries. Our patients come first, but we also follow the numbers. Our Cardiovascular Data Management Center provides comprehensive and continuous quality improvement information, allowing us to compare our patient outcomes to state and national benchmarks. It makes us better, making your care even better.

We acknowledge our history, too. Doctors at Hartford Hospital, now part of the Heart & Vascular Institute, in 1984 became the first Connecticut hospital to perform a successful heart transplant. Since then, we’ve performed more than 250 heart transplants.
