About Us

The East Carolina Heart Institute is a unique partnership that includes Vidant Medical Center and East Carolina University along with cardiovascular experts in private practice, academic medicine and research.

First of its kind

The East Carolina Heart Institute is the first of its kind in North Carolina devoted exclusively to education, research, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases. It features world-class physicians, researchers and clinicians who are redefining the way cardiovascular care is delivered.

The Heart Institute is located at the geographic center of eastern North Carolina, a region in which cardiovascular disease is more prevalent than any other place in the nation. Driven by this compelling need, the highly trained specialists here work tirelessly to develop new and better approaches to caring for heart patients and their families. As a result, physicians and staff with Vidant Medical Center have developed particular expertise in treating cardiovascular disease. The hospital, as an academic medical center, and East Carolina University are committed to educating health professionals not only here but also worldwide.

Cardiovascular Services at Vidant Medical Center have long been established as well integrated, internationally recognized programs that span the continuum of care from prevention and diagnosis to treatment and rehabilitation. Top-notch teams of physicians and researchers affiliated with Vidant Medical Center and ECU have received international acclaim for advances in minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgery. East Carolina University instructs physicians from around the globe in the use of the robotic da Vinci® Surgical System. As a result, patients here can take advantage of a variety of options — some that were pioneered here.
