Our role in revolutionizing cardiology care dates back to 1968. Researchers at Aurora Health Care pioneered a procedure allowing blood flow to bypass clogged arteries (coronary artery bypass grafting or CABG). Today, CABG is the gold standard for heart attack care in hospitals worldwide. Learn more about our history of research innovation.
