You can help Bridgeport Hospital improve diagnostic capabilities for patients with chest pain, heart attacks, congestive heart failure and irregular heartbeats.

Bridgeport Hospital’s Joel E. Smilow Heart Institute, an important partner of the Heart and Vascular Center of Yale New Haven Health, provides nationally recognized, leading edge care to patients with heart disease.

Donors like you played an important role in the opening of the Hybrid Operating Room last year.  Because of you, our experienced cardiac and vascular surgeons offer minimally invasive cardiac surgery close to home.

Our physician and nursing leaders have asked for funding to upgrade our current nuclear camera to a newer, more advanced model that will clarify results and improve resolution to more accurately diagnose myocardial ischemia (low blood flow to the heart from a coronary blockage).

Philanthropy is crucial to the fulfillment of Bridgeport Hospital’s healthcare mission. Thank you for making a difference in the care of our patients.
