A Heartfelt Mission: Unveiling the Virginia Heart Attack Coalition's New Vision and Mission

In the heart of Virginia, a transformative wave is sweeping across the cardiovascular care landscape, promising a future where every resident has access to the highest quality of heart care. The Virginia Heart Attack Coalition (VHAC) is proud to unveil its new mission and vision statements, markers of our renewed commitment to revolutionize cardiovascular health across the state. 

Our Vision: A Heart-Healthy Virginia for All

At VHAC, we dream of a Virginia where geography and socio-economic status do not determine the quality of cardiovascular care one receives. Our vision is clear: "All Virginians should have access to high-quality, patient-centered, equitable cardiovascular care." This vision guides our actions, our strategies, and our collaborations. It is a promise to our communities that we will strive tirelessly to ensure every heart in Virginia is cared for with the highest standards of excellence and equity.

Our Mission: Collaboration, Education, and Improvement

To bring our vision to life, we have articulated a mission that reflects our pathway to change: "To continuously improve cardiovascular systems of care in Virginia through education and data-driven collaboration with healthcare professionals and organizations, community partners, and patients."

This mission is a call to action. It is a pledge to foster a culture of continuous improvement and learning. We believe that by bringing together healthcare professionals, organizations, community partners, and patients in a shared effort, we can overcome the barriers to equitable care. Through education and collaboration, we aim to empower every member of our community with the knowledge and resources to fight heart disease effectively.

Why This Matters Now

Heart disease remains a leading cause of death in Virginia and across the United States. Despite advancements in medical technology and knowledge, significant gaps in care persist, particularly in underserved communities. Our new mission and vision are responses to this urgent challenge. They reflect our commitment to not only address these disparities but to eradicate them. 

Join Us on This Heartfelt Journey

The road ahead is long, and the challenges are significant, but the potential impact of our collective efforts is monumental. We invite you, whether you are a healthcare professional, a community partner, or someone passionate about heart health, to join us. Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can ensure that every Virginian has the chance to live a life unburdened by heart disease.

Looking Forward

As we embark on this journey to transform cardiovascular care in Virginia, we are filled with hope. We are motivated by the lives we can save and the communities we can uplift. Our mission and vision are not just words; they are a blueprint for a healthier, heartier Virginia.
