Inova Heart and Vascular Institute-Schaufeld Family Heart Center
Heart disease and stroke rank among the leading causes of death in Northern Virginia. The cardiovascular specialists at the Schaufeld Family Heart Center, Loudoun County’s home for Inova Heart and Vascular Institute, see more than 3,200 patients a year — making it the most utilized heart unit throughout all Inova.
Thanks to breakthroughs in diagnostic and non-invasive technologies, our specialists have dramatically decreased the average “door-to-balloon” time for heart attack patients to below 65 minutes, well under the national benchmark of 90 minutes. Philanthropic support will more than double the size of the Center to accommodate four additional procedure rooms, pre-op and recovery rooms and expanded patient bays for an enhanced healing environment. In addition, your philanthropy helps recruit specialists and expand technologies to strengthen our capacity to predict, prevent and prescribe personalized treatments.
