Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death in the United States. It claims nearly 700,000 lives every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. At Baptist Health, we’re committed to creating new surgical techniques and medical therapies that can help save those lives.

As a heart care facility, we offer our patients a unique experience. At the same time you receive the personal, attentive care expected at a smaller hospital, you also have access to leading-edge cardiovascular research. Our investigators at the Baptist Health Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute and Christine E. Lynn Heart and Vascular Institute conduct clinical trials that can give you early access to the latest technologies and treatments.

Most Lynn Heart and Vascular Institute cardiac research trials are available at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, while Miami Cardiac & Vascular Institute trials are available at locations throughout Miami-Dade County.

Our Cardiac Research Focus

The opportunity to improve heart health for patients inspires our investigators. They look for clinical trials that they believe have a chance to change healthcare for the better and benefit you the most. The National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Food & Drug Administration support many of these efforts.

Our researchers are part of interdisciplinary teams that focus on developing the next generation of technologies and treatments that will improve quality of life for all our patients. We currently have over 50 clinical trials underway that focus on a variety of areas, including:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiothoracic and vascular surgery
  • Electrophysiology
  • General cardiology
  • Lung conditions
  • 30+

    studies of minimally invasive devices and procedures.
  • 50

    clinical trials in all areas of cardiovascular care
Patient Benefits of Cardiovascular Research

Patient Benefits of Cardiovascular Research

We are proud that, over time, our Baptist Health Research efforts have created new evidence-based practices that improved patient care. Our goal is developing more minimally invasive treatment options that:

  • Improve outcomes
  • Improve quality of life
  • Reduce hospital stay time
  • Shorten recovery time

As a patient, you can be a part of the valuable work we do. If you’re interested, talk with your doctor about a cardiac research clinical trial that might be best for you.

Patient Protection

To protect our patients, every clinical trial undergoes rigorous review by the Baptist Health South Florida Institutional Review Board. Baptist Health Heart & Vascular Care has a dedicated research department that coordinates trials and works directly with patients enrolled in studies.  For more information about all Baptist Health Heart & Vascular Care research trials please contact us.
