A Message from Our Executive Director, Patrick M. McCarthy, MD
At Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute our goal is to achieve superior results for all of our patients and to help them return to normal activities while improving their overall quality of life. We believe that clinical outcomes should be a major consideration in helping patients and referring physicians decide where to seek and refer care.
