Heart and Vascular Center

"Cardiovascular disease" describes diseases of the heart and blood vessels. Such diseases affect the heart's ability to function normally, and are the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. Some cardiovascular conditions are present at birth (congenital), while others develop over time.

The Dartmouth-Hitchcock Heart and Vascular Center offers highly integrated multidisciplinary care for cardiovascular conditions.
