For more than 30 years, the University of Arizona Sarver Heart Center has provided expert and compassionate care to patients and their families throughout Arizona and the Southwestern United States. Many lives have been saved not only in our hospitals every day, but also through our community-based prevention programs and by teaching compression-only CPR to thousands of individuals throughout Arizona and beyond via in-person training sessions and free online resources.

Our legacy includes hundreds of physicians and scientists trained at Sarver Heart Center, working to improve the lives of people throughout the world.

None of this would have been possible without you and other generous donors who have chosen to make charitable gifts to the Sarver Heart Center. Your support makes our heart beat. Thank you!

Arizona is facing a heart disease epidemic as our population ages. But our growing faculty of physicians, scientists and other caregivers are dedicated to training a greater number of future cardiologists and collaborating with each other to advance discoveries with the promise of longer and healthier lives for people with a range of cardiovascular conditions and heart disease risk.

Deborah Martinez and her family, husband, Frank, and son, Francisco, review CardioMEMS data with Angelica Lentner, NP “Sarver Heart Center cardiologists saved my life,” says Deborah Martinez (right), who suffers from a genetic condition that has caused her heart muscle to thicken. The Heart Failure Team recommended that Deborah receive a small implantable device that transmits her heart pressure via a cellphone signal to her care team who can make necessary changes to her medication quickly and easily.  CardioMEMS device is a small wire about 2" wide.

Deborah’s life has been transformed by donors like you and by the Sarver Heart Center’s commitment to innovative medicine.


Please make your next gift today to the Sarver Heart Center. Together, we will continue to innovate, advancing heart health and disease prevention while providing life-saving patient care.

Thank you.
