People choose UC Davis Health when they want the best possible health-care team helping them manage — and overcome — heart or vascular disease.

Our specialists and subspecialists are passionate about providing the highest level of cardiac and blood vessel care. In addition to being caring clinicians, they are national leaders in developing and testing the next generation of cardiac and vascular therapies, technologies and surgical techniques, and then delivering them to patients worldwide. And the opening of our diagnostic and surgical facilities in 2010 brought our already state-of-the-art evaluation, treatment and surgical capabilities to a whole new level.

The result is integrated, seamless and current patient-centered services that can only be delivered at UC Davis Health — an academic medical center dedicated to advancing the health of heart and vascular patients in this region and beyond.

We hope you choose UC Davis Health for your heart and vascular care. We are ready to put together the team that provides the expertise, compassion and treatment options that work for you.
