Mission and Vision
The vision of St. Vincent’s Regional Heart and Vascular Center is to be recognized as the premier provider of integrated, innovative cardiovascular services in the state of Connecticut. We will be defined by quality outcomes, education, research and our unwavering commitment to personalized patient care.
Tradition of innovation
With much recognition including national designations, St. Vincent’s cardiac program has a proud tradition of outstanding clinical results and a history of innovation, dating back to its introduction of emergency angioplasty to the area back in 1995. This emergency angioplasty, known as Primary Angioplasty for Myocardial Infarction, or PAMI, subsequently became the standard of care across the nation.
How is this relevant to you and your loved ones? It means that you can count on the medical professionals at St. Vincent’s to provide the highest level of care in a facility equipped with the latest technology yet still deliver personalized care.
Cutting-edge care close to home
St. Vincent’s, specialists perform the most advanced procedures usually only found within major academic facilities, while ensuring that each patient receives the individualized care available only in a community-based setting. The result is cutting-edge medicine in a comfortable and healing environment.
Many firsts have been recorded in the development of St. Vincent’s cardiac care, and currently, we are again on the cutting edge with our comprehensive atrial fibrillation program, as the only hospital in the tri-state area to have both the "5-box TT Maze" (one of the most effective minimally invasive surgeries to correct Atrial-fibrillation) and non-surgical treatment modalities for this condition. Such firsts are a dramatic illustration of our commitment to providing the highest level of care to our patients, with physicians who are experts in their field and staff who anticipate all the patient’s needs and create a warm and personal atmosphere.
Leader in minimally invasive approach
St. Vincent’s is not just a part of the movement to less invasive techniques for dealing with heart problems but a leader in this dramatic shift in how patients are treated. St. Vincent’s has been recognized as a top institution nationally for minimally invasive cardiac surgery, which for many conditions has replaced the “open heart” surgeries of the past, meaning less pain and a quicker recover for patients.
We are investing in the future of health care with the acquisition of the latest in technology such as non-invasive diagnostic testing equipment and with advanced training for our staff all to offer patients the best outcomes possible.
Helping patients stay healthy
In large part St. Vincent’s Regional Heart and Vascular Center’s mission is also to educate patients on prevention and wellness strategies to help them stay healthy and avoid interventions. But if a medical need arises, patients know they can trust St. Vincent’s to provide the highest quality of clinical expertise and technology, and a dedicated staff is at the ready to make their stay a patient-centered experience.
