Atrium Health’s Cardiac Lifeline to Residents of Belize Marks 10-Year Milestone

Friday, November 11, 2022

Submitted by



Before a Belizean hospital’s partnership with Atrium Health Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute, local patients would have to travel out of the country for cardiac surgical care, which was cost prohibitive for many. Now, surgeons travel to Belize six times a year to perform cardiac catheterizations and other heart surgeries, and to train local doctors. The program is currently celebrating its tenth year in operation and continues to make lifesaving care more accessible in Belize.
