The renovated space is located in the building formerly known as the Backus Outpatient Care Center which also includes diagnostic imaging, endocrinology, arthritis and rheumatology services, pain management, rehabilitation services, wound care, and Quest laboratory services.

Dr. Howard L. Haronian, Heart & Vascular Institute Chief Medical Director and Vice President, East Region, said “the Heart & Vascular Institute is focused on increasing access to care in convenient, modern offices with one-stop coordinated care in the communities we serve.”
