Research Center Profile:
Holy Cross Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Research Institute
Holy Cross Hospital has long been recognized as the region’s premier provider of cardiac care. This distinction has been exemplified through our ability to move into the exciting and ever-changing arena of cardiovascular research through the Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Research Institute.
Due to the generosity of Jim and Jan Moran and the JM Family Enterprises, Inc., along with the vision of the Sisters of Mercy and the skilled dedication of our Physician Investigators and staff, our Research Institute is poised to contribute significantly to finding innovative ways to manage the damage caused by heart disease-and ceasing the far-reaching damage it inflicts on the lives of those affected in our community. We’re pursuing an advanced scientific and clinical research agenda, enabling Holy Cross Hospital and its physicians to offer patients access to advanced clinical therapies that would otherwise not be available in Fort Lauderdale, South Florida and beyond. We are committed to a culture of inclusion in which all people are welcomed, valued and celebrated.
