St. Boniface Hospital has Heart

Manitoba’s Cardiac Centre of Excellence is among Canada’s best

Dr. Davinder Jassal stopped by The Health Report on 680 CJOB to chat about Heart Month with co-hosts Greg Mackling, Vince Barletta, St. Boniface Hospital Foundation’s President & CEO, and Kris Gladwell, St. Boniface Hospital’s Vice President, Development.

Dr. Jassal works at the Albrechtsen Research Centre at St. Boniface Hospital. His research at the Institute of Cardiac Sciences focuses on using different non-invasive cardiovascular imaging technology to assess a variety of heart failure syndromes.

While giving some tips on how to protect your heart, Dr. Jassal also discussed the results of a newly-released report on the state of cardiac care in Canada.

According to the Canadian Institute for Health Information and the Canadian Cardiovascular Society’s Cardiac Care Quality Indicators Report, St. Boniface Hospital scores high, setting the pace for excellence in cardiac treatments and surgical procedures.

The Foundation is proud to support the work of our cardiac researchers and health care providers! It is thanks to donors like you that St. Boniface Hospital can continue to provide the highest quality of care using the best technology available.
