History of Our Name

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.
