Lancaster Heart & Vascular Institute
Bringing the latest clinical and research advances in heart and vascular care to the Lancaster community has been a cornerstone for Lancaster General Health and the Lancaster Heart & Stroke Foundation for many years. This tradition continues now under our newly formed Lancaster Heart & Vascular Institute, a centralized resource that brings together our clinical, programmatic and research efforts under one umbrella for better coordination and care.
Access to clinical research gives our patients and the community an opportunity to have the most up-to-date diagnostic and treatment techniques, and ultimately better outcomes. It also keeps our providers current on the latest evidenced-based approaches for the diagnosis and care of cardiovascular disease.
The merger of Lancaster General Health with the Lancaster Heart & Stroke Foundation demonstrates our continued commitment to expand and advance these research efforts both locally and regionally. With this merger, we will continue to rely on community support to advance programs and processes directed towards improving the health of the Lancaster community.
Oversight for these initiatives is provided by the Lancaster Heart & Vascular Institute Mission Committee, a group of interested community leaders, many of which were part of the previous Heart & Stroke Foundation board. The members of the Mission Committee provide leadership with the vision and stewardship of the community resources provided to us. Learn more about the Lancaster Heart & Vascular Institute.
