Advanced, Comprehensive Cardiovascular Care
On June 11, 2007, the $215 million University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center (CVC) clinical building opened its doors to a new way of treating and studying cardiovascular disease in Michigan and throughout the nation. Located at the corner of Ann and Observatory streets, at the heart of the U-M medical campus, the Center unites many of the people and programs dedicated to heart and vascular care that were once located throughout the medical center. On March 21, 2013, the University of Michigan's Board of Regents approved the naming of the CVC in honor of Samuel and Jean Frankel to recognize the couple's groundbreaking support of the University of Michigan CVC. The gift from the Samuel and Jean Frankel Foundation to the U-M Cardiovascular Center was announced anonymously when the Center opened in 2007, and the March 21, 2013, date marked the first time the donor had been named publicly.
From outpatient visits and tests to surgery and recovery, the Cardiovascular Center serves as a central location for coordinated, top-quality cardiovascular care from our highly skilled medical and surgical teams. Together with inpatient units in University Hospital, outpatient clinics located throughout the local area, and specialized care for children with congenital heart defects at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, the building makes U-M's nationally recognized cardiovascular care convenient and accessible to all.
The Frankel Cardiovascular Center is designed to create a calm and healing environment for patients and visitors. Indoor and outdoor healing gardens, rooms for quiet reflection, a patient education center, valet parking, a heart-healthy café and art-filled halls are just some of the features geared toward patients and families.
