Heart Institute History

The East Carolina Heart Institute is part of the continuing vision for comprehensive cardiovascular services that will serve eastern North Carolina and beyond. The Cardiovascular Center at Vidant Medical Center has already earned a reputation as one of the nation's premier institutions for groundbreaking heart care and research. Over the years, the center has earned a reputation for excellence in interventional cardiology, cardiac imaging and cardiac surgery.

In October 2008, the Heart Institute at ECU opened its doors to outpatients and research. Soon after, the Heart Institute at Vidant Medical Center began seeing patients in January 2009.

With the opening of the Heart Institute, the vision of comprehensive, state-of-the-art services, programs and facilities was realized. The Heart Institute focuses extraordinary expertise, technology and services on the devastating toll that cardiovascular disease now takes on Americans in all walks of life.

The Heart Institute is the first facility in North Carolina devoted exclusively to education, research, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
