Introduction to MHVI

Welcome to the MedStar Heart and Vascular Institute. 

While you are here, you will be cared for by a team of doctors, nurses, physician assistants and nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, pharmacists, and rehabilitation specialists – Each of us is an expert in what we do, which is to provide you with advanced care to help you get well.

We also have state of the art equipment that helps us care for you. While you are here, we can track your heart rate, blood pressure and respiratory rate. This and other equipment can be loud.  We would be happy to talk to you about what the different sounds mean and how the equipment is helping you. Our goal is to provide a restful, healing environment. 

Visitors are welcome here – we want your loved ones to be involved in your care as much as possible. There may be times where we will ask your loved ones to wait outside, but we will let you know when they can return. 

You can be certain that our team is working to provide you with the best possible care. We encourage you and your loved ones to ask questions. Please know that you are in the best of hands and that safe, patient-centered care is our number one priority.
