For the first time in School of Medicine history, the Divisions of Cardiology and Cardiothoracic Surgery and the vascular surgery service of the Department of Surgery have joined together to form the new Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Heart & Vascular Center.
Nine floors are now dedicated to treating heart and vascular patients, in addition to the cardiac procedure center and the cardiac diagnostic lab. Seven of these floors are located in Queeny Tower and the adjacent Rand Johnson building. The Queeny Tower lobby has been renovated and is the new Heart & Vascular Center lobby.
“Having a single point of entry makes access much easier for our heart and vascular patients,” says Douglas L. Mann, MD, the Tobias and Hortense Lewin Professor of Medicine and chief of the Cardiovascular Division at the School of Medicine and chief of cardiology at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. “Patients receive their care from an integrated team of physicians and nurses who are national leaders in the treatment of heart and vascular disease.”
