THE LIVES OF MANY
AT THE CARDIAC CENTRE
Since opening in 1997 the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre has become Canada’s premier cardiac centre. It is one of the largest multidisciplinary programs of its kind in the world, focusing on excellence in clinical care, research, innovation and teaching.
Heart disease impacts the lives of millions of Canadians and represents a major economic and societal burden around the world. There is good news: We are fixing broken hearts. For 20 years, the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre at University Health Network has been at the forefront of innovation, discovering newer and better ways to care for patients with heart disease.
We are a world leader in the diagnosis, care and treatment of both simple and complex cardiac and vascular disease. Home to many world and Canadian firsts, discoveries made at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre have redefined excellence in cardiovascular care worldwide. Innovative, multidisciplinary teams are changing and saving lives in ways deemed virtually impossible not that long ago.
Funds raised from the 2018 Have a Heart Charity Golf Tournament ‘The Triple Bypass’ will have a significant impact on the care patients receive at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre through helping us redevelop a very important operating facility: the cardiac catheterization laboratories with the most advanced imaging technology. A regional, national, and international referral centre for patients with the most complex heart disease, our team of experts in the cardiac catheterization laboratories together perform more than 10,000 life-saving procedures a year. This important investment in the cardiac catheterization laboratories will ultimately translate into quicker recovery time for our patients, leading to a shorter hospital stay. Proceeds from Have a Heart will help us continue to deliver the highest quality of care to treat patients with heart disease, transforming care across the country – and around the globe.
Transform the future of cardiac and vascular care for patients across Canada and around the world by integrating excellence in clinical care, research, innovation and teaching.
