Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center Marks Tenth Anniversary

On July 31, 2011, UC San Diego opened the Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center (SCVC), the first healthcare facility in the region to offer a full continuum of cardiovascular services all under one roof. As we mark the 10th anniversary, the SCVC is the heart of our Cardiovascular Institute and continues to be in the vanguard of cardiovascular care. We are incredibly proud of all that the Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center team has achieved. Among the many highlights include:

  1. Being ranked #23 in the country for Heart & Heart Surgery by US News & World Report 2021
  2. The heart transplant program being ranked #2 in the nation for one-year patient survival rates among programs with 100 to 120 heart transplants performed annually
  3. The lung transplant program being ranked #1 in the nation for one-year patient survival rates among programs with 50 to 75 lung transplants performed annually
  4. Performing California’s first robotically assisted coronary stenting procedure
  5. Performing the heart transplant surgery from a donor after circulatory death (DCD) on the West Coast.

These represent just a few of the many achievements the Cardiovascular Institute team has garnered over the past 10 years thanks, in part, to the leadership of Ehtisham Mahmud, MD, and Michael Madani, MD. Please join us in recognizing the wonderful staff and faculty as well as all those who have contributed to the Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center’s success over the years. We are confident the Center will continue to deliver innovative, lifesaving care in the years to come. Happy 10th anniversary.
