St. Joseph’s Health Opens $32 Million Cardiovascular Center

After $32 million of investment and just under a year of construction, St. Joseph’s Health will be officially opening a new 45,000 square foot Cardiovascular Care Center that will allow the hospital to truly become a destination center for all cardiac services by providing a dedicated space for the integration of services to enhance the patient experience and provide the highest quality of efficient care. The newly named “St. Joseph’s Health Cardiovascular Institute” is the most awarded heart care program in the region and is ranked among the Top 15 heart surgery centers in the nation.

The Center will be named for A. John Merola, M.D. who has been closely aligned with St. Joseph’s Health for more than 50 years and helped create the family medicine residency program in the 1970s. Dr. Merola is Honorary Chairman for the 150th Anniversary Campaign and generously donated a $3 million contribution toward this project.
