Hospital’s History

Carondelet Heart & Vascular Institute (CHVI), on the campus of St. Mary’s Hospital, is a premier regional destination for modern cardiovascular care. CHVI Physicians also serve the needs of patients on the campus of St. Joseph’s Hospital. As a part of the Institute’s relocation and expansion in 2013, Carondelet invested $17 million into new construction, renovations and technology to forward the Institute’s vision to be “nationally recognized as a premier destination for modern cardiovascular care through clinical excellence, research, and physician education.” Later this year, the Institute will introduce a sophisticated cardiovascular hybrid operating suite that is the first-of-its-kind in North America! CHVI combines an exceptional patient and family experience with specialized medical expertise to ensure quality outcomes. The use of minimally invasive surgical techniques helps speed the healing process and allows patients to return to their favorite activities quickly. Locating CHVI on the campus of a tertiary medical center, with a full complement of medical specialties, allows for the highest quality of care for patients facing a variety of health needs and provides more immediate access by regional patients via Interstates 10 and 19.

Hospital’s History
Carondelet St. Joseph’s Hospital is an acute care tertiary facility founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in 1961. The hospital has grown considerably over the last 50+ years, offering many cutting-edge services, programs and technologies. In April 2013, the Carondelet Joint Replacement Center opened at the hospital. This premier center for total joint replacement of knees, hips, shoulders and ankles differs from other programs in its multi-disciplinary approach. Prior to surgery, patients undergo a physical assessment in Carondelet’s acclaimed CARE Clinic; attend Joint Camp where they learn what to expect before, during and after surgery; and receive their own individual program coordinator to walk them through every stage of their care and recovery. The Joint Replacement Center includes an on-site physical therapy gym and pool, and is the only facility of its kind in Southern Arizona offering inpatient aquatic therapy. St. Joseph’s Hospital is also home to the renowned Carondelet Neurological Institute, the largest and most comprehensive program in Southern Arizona dedicated to the treatment of neurological disorders and injuries.
