Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Research Institute

The Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Research Institute at Holy Cross Hospital is a cardiovascular research center specializing in cutting-edge clinical trials for the diagnosis and treatment of heart, coronary artery and vascular disease. 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.

Our goal for doing research is to enhance the quality of life for all patients by furthering scientific and medical advancements. The Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Research Institute at Holy Cross Hospital will join the few community-based, non-teaching medical centers in the country to engage in academic and industry sponsored research collaborations.

Our vision is to:

  • Advance medical discoveries into efficacious therapies.
  • Derive beneficial therapies at a lower cost.
  • Offer these novel therapies earlier to the patients in our community.
  • Apply high-level, cutting-edge science to clinical practice.
  • Attract leading studies, therapies and physicians from around the world for the advancement of science and the betterment of patients.

The Institute has propelled Holy Cross Hospital to the leading edge of medicine. Holy Cross uses the most advanced technology and performs state-of-the-art procedures. But that is not enough for us. We insist upon finding the next generations of treatments. We demand to play a major role in the advancement of medical science, and it is all motivated by our mission to beat heart disease.

Because of this mission, we have attracted an unparalleled team of first-class physicians and a host of important clinical studies from around the world. This benefits not only science but also the people of our community. Thanks to the Research Institute, Holy Cross patients have access to the newest and most promising heart and vascular treatments which they would not have had at another community hospital.
