About the Frankel Cardiovascular Center Facility

The Samuel and Jean Frankel Cardiovascular Center is one of the largest facilities in the heart of the University of Michigan Medical Campus, yet it was designed to create a calm and healing environment for patients and visitors. Indoor and outdoor healing gardens, rooms for quiet reflection, a patient education center, valet parking, a heart-healthy café and art-filled halls are just some of the features geared toward patients and families.

On March 21, 2013, the University of Michigan's Board of Regents approved the naming of the Samuel and Jean Frankel Cardiovascular Center to recognize Samuel and Jean Frankel's groundbreaking support of the University of Michigan CVC. It is in this 350,000 square-foot, multidisciplinary facility that we can fulfill our vision of being the best academic heart and vascular center in the world.
