The Hispanic Cardiovascular Clinic at the Massachusetts General Hospital Corrigan Minehan Heart Center aims to help Hispanic patients improve both their heart health and their quality of life by expanding access to cardiovascular care for our Spanish-speaking patients in communities throughout the greater Boston area and New England. The Hispanic Cardiovascular Clinic helps patients navigate treatment for heart disease, including cardiology, cardiovascular testing, minimally invasive procedures, and cardiac surgery.
All providers at the Hispanic Cardiovascular Clinic provide culturally sensitive care in Spanish to overcome language barriers that might otherwise prevent patients from seeking the care they need. In addition, our staff help patients access testing, community services, financial assistance, and follow-up care with other providers when needed. We also connect patients with specialized care for related illnesses, such as diabetes and mental health conditions.
