Coronary Artery Center
The Coronary Artery Center of Jiangsu Province Hospital was founded in 2011. It was originally developed from the Department of Cardiology, the only National Key Discipline of Jiangsu Province Hospital.
The center currently has 132 beds and employs 20 professionals, among whom 14 have senior professional titles, 9 are full professors, 5 are associate professors, 3 are doctoral supervisors and 9 are master tutors.
In the field of coronary intervention and grafting, the center act as a leading position in Jiangsu Province and is located in an advanced status in China. Additionally, the gene therapy for ischemic myocardiopathy of the center has a high level of academic influence over the world.
