    gillprofThe UK Gill Heart Institute’s comprehensive approach to heart and vascular health begins with promoting cardiovascular wellness and extends to treating life-threatening complications with the newest therapies and devices. Our greatest asset is our faculty, a multidisciplinary clinical team that includes members from six services:

    • Adult cardiology
    • Pediatric cardiology
    • Cardiothoracic surgery
    • Vascular surgery
    • Cardiac radiology
    • Cardiac anesthesiology

    Our leading-edge facilities are available in the UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital, UK Good Samaritan Hospital, office locations at the Gill Heart Institute building on the UK campus, at Maxwell Street in downtown Lexington and at nearly a dozen outreach sites around the Commonwealth.

    The Gill Heart Institute serves as a local referral center for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. We offer the only advanced heart failure and transplantation program in the region, and we are one of 34 centers in the United States certified in the implantation of the SynCardia temporary Total Artificial Heart. The Gill Imaging Center, equipped with two 64-slice CT scanners, a 1.5 Tesla and a 3.0 Tesla MRI scanner, performs complex adult and pediatric cases in close collaboration between cardiology and radiology.

    Our complete cardiovascular care includes a cardiac rehabilitation program, leading-edge electrophysiology and interventional cardiology procedures, minimally-invasive approaches to structural heart disease and extensive surgical services for heart and vascular disease.  

    Our aim is to provide every patient with exceptionally compassionate care in the safest and most appropriate manner possible based on the best evidence and latest technological advances.
