The Winter 2017 issue of West Virginia Executive magazine features an article on the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute (HVI).

Vinay Badhwar, MD, executive chair, is featured on the cover. An article titled "The Heart of West Virginia" describes the beginnings and rapid progress of the West Virginia HVI, which opened in June 2016.

The institute provides a comprehensive array of innovative heart and vascular services and specializes in repairing and replacing diseased heart valves using minimally invasive and robotic techniques, and complex interventional and structural heart cardiology procedures and advanced limb-preserving vascular techniques to reverse the chronic effects of peripheral artery disease.

Services include cardiac surgery, cardiology, vascular surgery, interventional radiology, thoracic surgery, cardiac anesthesia, and advanced imaging — all under one roof.

Members of the HVI team meet in a conference room in J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital's new southeast tower.
