A grand opening celebration for The University of Toledo Heart and Vascular Center will take place Thursday, May 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. at UT Medical Center on Health Science Campus.

The Heart and Vascular Center is the community’s first integrated center for patient care, education and translational research in cardiac and vascular diseases.

The center will provide patients access to state-of-the-art facilities and nationally recognized cardiac and vascular specialists in a model that brings together multiple specialties, including cardiology, vascular medicine, vascular surgery, cardiac surgery and cardiac rehabilitation.

The celebration also will feature the recognition of seven of the area’s top physicians who practice at UTMC. Gold and Jim Hoffman, president of Key Bank, will pay tribute to the doctors.

Honorees include physicians nationally recognized by their peers for exceptional specialty care from a wide array of disciplines, including surgery, orthopedics, cardiology and pediatrics.

The celebration will close with remarks from UT President Lloyd Jacobs and Richard Stansley, chair of the UT Board of Trustees.

Tours of the Heart and Vascular Center will be available before and after the celebration.

This event is made possible with the support of Key Private Bank.
