We are a GREAT TEAM
HM CIEC is the Comprehensive Centre for Cardiovascular Diseases created in 2013 by HM Hospitales group. In a short time it has become the private flagship centre at national level in treatments for cardiovascular diseases. Our seat is located at University HM Montepríncipe hospital and comprehends all cardiology activity of HM hospitals and clinics in the Region of Madrid.
HM CIEC enables the exclusive work of a highly qualified team of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and nursing staff every day all year-round.
This pioneering and ambitious project, unique in the domain of Spanish private health care, develops multidisciplinary and comprehensively the professional experience of national and international renowned cardiologists in the different fields of cardiovascular diseases.
HM CIEC has access to
• Clinical care protocols through specialised units.
• Cardiovascular research lines supported by HM Hospitales Research Foundation in which participate shared professionals with the Spanish National Cardiovascular Research Centre
(CNIC) led by Dr Valentín Fuster.
• Undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes associated to the prestigious Medical School of San Pablo CEU University.
HM CIEC applies unified protocols for care, research and teaching in the field of cardiovascular disease.
We are your HEART
HM CIEC places the patient at the centre of care through personalised medicine based on scientific evidence and with a series of pillars that make us unique.
Personalised assistance for each patient since arrival. Through our CardioCare service, we take responsibility for assisting you throughout the process of your disease and for working in coordination with the medical team. In addition, to achieve the greatest level of confidence between doctor and patient, the relevant practitioners and the nursing staff complete the daily communication with the patient and relatives about the therapeutic and diagnostic protocols applied.
Multidisciplinary cooperation within HM CIEC for specific cardiac pathologies (Heart Team) with many specialists such as internal medicine doctors, endocrinologists, radiologists, pathologists and physiotherapists.
Translational research to apply to the patient the most effective and innovative measures, both from the diagnostic and therapeutic point of view, proven in clinical trials.
High investment in technology that goes from genetic tests to predict cardiovascular risk to state-of-the-art cardiac imaging equipment. Some of the equipment we have is unique in Spain, such as the simultaneously acquired PET-MRI with very high field and 3 Tesla that studies the cardiac function and anatomy. We also have cardiac electrophysiology labs equipped with the latest robotic tools.
Strong teaching determination that enables the transfer of knowledge through continuous training and refresher courses.
HM CIEC promotes a multidisciplinary collaboration in complex pathologies of the cardiovascular system, allowing the best diagnostic and therapeutic approach.
