Cardiovascular Medicine


At the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, we practice academic cardiovascular medicine in the true sense of the word–the dynamic integration of clinical practice, research, and education into one compassionate and innovative patient care. The tradition started in 1891 when the Ashbel Smith Building or more commonly known as "Old Red" opened its door to clinicians, medical students and researchers as the oldest medical school in the state of Texas. Just next to the Old Red was the original John Sealy Hospital, the university hospital of UTMB. It is our belief that for us to be able to provide our patients with truly outstanding cardiology care, it is necessary to also excel in cardiovascular research and education. All of our cardiologists are engaged in cardiovascular education of medical students, nurses, health-care professionals, residents and fellows. Many participate in clinical and basic science research to discover and innovate. Insights acquired in bench are brought to bedside to improve the care of our patients. Today, we celebrate the 130 years of excellence and continue to bring our knowledge, experience, innovation, and discovery to our patients.

Our Outpatient care is provided at four UTMB Health Cardiovascular Medicine clinic locations: UTMB Health Clinics (UHC) in Galveston; Primary and Specialty Care Clinic in Texas City; Specialty Care Center in Victory Lakes; and Multispecialty Center in League City. Our inpatient care is primarily provided at the Jennie Sealy Hospital on the Galveston main campus, UTMB League City, UTMB Clear Lake and UTMB Angleton Danbury campuses. The Jennie Sealy Hospital, UTMB League City and UTMB Clear Lake campuses feature the state-of-the-art Cardiac Catheterization and Electrophysiology Laboratories, the cutting-edge Heart Station and Echo Lab, and Coronary Care Unit and Step-down Unit.
