Heart & Vascular Center

Heart & Vascular Center Leadership

Brigham and Women’s Hospital is proud to have a rich legacy in cardiovascular care and research. For nearly a century, we have been the epicenter for innovation and discovery in this field. The depth and breadth of our achievements span every facet of cardiovascular care, from performing the first successful valve surgery in the world to being the first to prove aspirin can prevent a heart attack.

Under the clinical leadership of Dr. John Keaney and Dr. Mandeep Mehra, our Heart & Vascular Center is poised to better integrate all of our cardiovascular services and serve as a catalyst for further advances in care and research.

As a cardiologist and president of Brigham and Women's Hospital, I am confident that our Heart & Vascular Center will continue to lead the way in shaping cardiovascular care for generations to come
