Mission and Name


VCU Health Pauley Heart Center’s mission is to:

  • Practice the highest quality, cost-effective cardiovascular care in a comprehensive, innovative environment that is individualized and sensitive to a diverse population.
  • Enhance scientific knowledge and care through creative and pioneering investigation.
  • Provide comprehensive education and training to students and all professionals with enthusiasm and respect.


VCU Heart Center was renamed VCU Health Pauley Heart Center in 2006 to recognize a $5 million gift from the Pauley Family Foundation. The designation places the heart center among only a few named major heart centers across the country.

The Pauley Family Foundation, led by Dorothy A. and Stanley F. Pauley, was impressed with the staff’s dedication and care when Mr. Pauley was a patient and wanted to give back. Their gift supported an expansion in staffing and an investment in technology to treat heart disease.
