Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. The good news? It is also one of the most preventable.
At UCLA Health, our 160 cardiovascular research laboratories, working together with teams of physicians and health care professionals, are united in a mission to understand the roots of this complex disease. We are designing therapies and interventions that do not just prevent heart disease but effectively treat it. Your generosity helps fuel this discovery.
Using the most advanced technology available, UCLA Health specialists can diagnose congenital heart disease as early as the 12th week of pregnancy.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, the Ahmanson/UCLA Adult Congenital Heart Disease Center provides state-of-the-art care and services to the growing number of patients with congenital heart disease who reach adulthood. In addition to providing patient-centered care, the Center serves as a leader in research and training related to adult congenital heart disease.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women, and because it often presents differently in women, it frequently takes longer for women to seek treatment and receive a diagnosis. The UCLA Women’s Cardiovascular Health Center offers a comprehensive array of cardiovascular healthcare services designed specifically for women, integrating the most recent medical and scientific advances.
Cardiac arrhythmias can be one of the earliest signs of heart trouble. Left untreated, serious arrhythmias can lead to heart attacks, stroke, and sudden death. The UCLA Cardiac Arrhythmia Center offers one of the most comprehensive programs in the United States to diagnose and treat complex arrhythmias. Our center’s vision is to provide the best possible care for patients of all ages and to advance teaching, research, and biomedical innovation.
The UCLA Advanced Heart Failure Program is leading the way in improving quality of life and survival rates for patients with advanced heart failure. The UCLA Advanced Heart Failure Program is an integrated service dedicated to providing comprehensive and easily accessible care for patients with advanced heart failure. The Program has decades of expertise in caring for the most critically ill patients, and is a world leader in providing advanced therapies through our Mechanical Circulatory Support and Heart Transplantation programs.
