We put patient care first with outstanding experiences and outcomes. We have several specialty services and resources to ensure patients receive the best treatment and care available anywhere.

At the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute, patient care of the utmost importance. We offer fully comprehensive services for adults who are in need of heart, lung or vascular services. Our team of specialists offer state-of-the-art diagnostics and advanced treatments, providing high-quality, innovative, and life-changing care that improves the health and well-being of our patients. Patients can be referred for consultation by their primary care physician or by cardiologists for specialized heart care situations. We also take self-referrals depending on insurance carrier. Most insurance plans require patients have a primary care physician coordinate referrals to specialists for heart conditions they cannot treat. Check with your insurance carrier to see what options they allow.
