MILLION RAISED TO DATE
The Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC) has established a world-class centre in cardiovascular care that is one of the largest programs of its kind, and a major referral centre offering resources and expertise to deal with the most complex patient cases.
With the launch of the Building the Future Campaign, the evolution of the PMCC will focus on the development of human resources and the creation and evaluation of ground-breaking therapies. The Campaign will establish Centres of Excellence which will support the efforts to grow, differentiate and impact cardiac care worldwide.
Peter Munk Cardiac Centre Chair in Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics
Creating a collaborative Centre of Excellence in Cardiac Valve therapy that is program focused, rather than provider based, is a novel approach that will maintain and strengthen our valve program on the international stage, and will provide durable leadership in a core area of cardiovascular care. The Centre will focus on advancing the field of complex valve repair by multidisciplinary teams that include Cardiologists, Cardiac Surgeons, Vascular Surgeons, Medical Imaging Physicians and Cardiac Anaesthesiologists. The establishment of the Peter Munk Cardiac Centred Chair in Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics will continue the legacy of Dr. Tirone David. This Chair will allow the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre to attract an individual who will be at the forefront of the development and evaluation of new technologies that are used to repair cardiac valves. It is anticipated that the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre Chair in Advanced Cardiac Therapeutics will also be the Head of the Division of Cardiac Surgery at University Health Network.

Endovascular Simulation Centre
Mentice VIST™ is a high fidelity endovascular simulator that provides relevant, realistic hands-on training for angiographic and interventional procedures. The cases available on the VIST™ facilitate the development of equipment handling skills and clinical decision making abilities. Multiple access options and a variety of patient scenarios challenge the learner’s procedural capabilities. With the Mentice VIST™ system, physicians can practice peripheral vascular, renal, carotid and coronary interventions, percutaneous heart valve replacement and endovascular stent graft repairs. This simulation centre will allow students, residents and staff to learn and practice the catheter based skills that will be necessary to deliver care for patients with cardiac and vascular disease. In the future, students will learn in a simulation centre before doing procedures in the operating room or cardiac catherization laboratory.

Chair in Peri-operative Cardiovascular Patient Safety
Over the last 5 years the UHN Department of Anaesthesia and Pain Management has developed a set of unique, world class Peri-operative Information Management tools, with a data base that currently has 15,000 patients. The Chair in Cardiovascular Peri-operative Patient Safety will build upon these recent advances in anaesthesia information technology, and capture in one place the totality of each patient’s peri-operative experience. Using these tools and data, the Chair will identify areas for improvement, and direct clinical trials, education and clinic decision support. The comprehensive peri-operative database will enable continued monitoring of outcomes and the evaluation of each intervention’s effectiveness in real time.
