Gill Heart & Vascular Institute

The UK Gill Heart & Vascular Institute is at the forefront of the battle against heart disease and stroke in Kentucky. As a nationally recognized leader in the field, the institute employs a comprehensive approach – from promoting cardiovascular wellness to treating life-threatening complications with the newest therapies and devices – in pursuit of its mission to decrease the state’s high rate of heart disease and to advance heart and vascular care worldwide.

GHVI’s commitment to providing excellent cardiovascular care and leading-edge research is founded on UK HealthCare’s three pillars of academic healthcare:

  • Our high-quality, comprehensive clinical care is focused on patients and their families, delivering value to those we serve across the cardiovascular care continuum at convenient locations throughout Kentucky and beyond.
  • We prioritize leading-edge innovation and discovery research for current and future cardiovascular care while employing a bench-to-bedside approach, ensuring patients benefit from nearly real-time scientific advances.
  • As regional leaders in education, our greatest asset is our faculty and staff—a multidisciplinary team of physicians and scientists with expertise in myriad disciplines: cardiovascular medicine, cardiac and vascular surgery, radiology, anesthesiology, pharmacy, physiology, pharmacology, biomedical engineering, and more.
