Research has led to breakthroughs in lifesaving procedures and devices like the defibrillator, stents and the artificial heart. Because of our reputation for excellence in heart and vascular care, we’re frequently offered opportunities to help investigate the next generation of new discoveries.
People who participate in a clinical trial may be able to benefit from treatments while they are still in the investigational phase. And for all patients, our reputation for innovation means we can offer the newest care as soon as it becomes available.
