It Takes Heart to Heal One!

The Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Center at Holy Cross Health in Fort Lauderdale offers the latest, cutting-edge, top quality cardiac care in South Florida.


We put our hearts into protecting yours. We strive for excellence in all that we do — for you! We are proud to count among our firsts:

  • First organization in Broward County to achieve The Joint Commission's Advanced Certification in Heart Failure, meaning our Congestive Heart Failure program:
    • provides the next generation of heart failure care
    • has met and seeks to maintain The Joint Commission’s high standards in providing stroke or heart failure care.
  • First in Broward County to perform Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacements on high-risk patients and on patients who cannot undergo or are at high risk open heart surgery.
  • First in Broward County to offer Induced Hypothermia, which has shown to increase the odds of surviving cardiac arrest and has also shown to improve neurological outcomes after such an event.
  • First in Florida to utilize the iCT 256-slice scanner to offer Cardiac CT Angiography (CCTA). Compared to current standards of care, this state-of-the-art technology is faster, safer, offers clearer images and allows physicians the ability to detect life-threatening illnesses at an early stage, including heart disease, cancer, stroke and lung disease.
  • First in Broward County to implant Reveal LINQTM - the smallest (one third the size of a AAA battery) wireless, long-term, cardiac monitor available on the market.
  • First in the tri-county area to offer the Medtronics MyCareLinkTM Patient Monitor — a simplified remote monitoring system with global cellular technology that transmits patients’ cardiac device diagnostic data to their clinicians from nearly any location in the world where a cellular signal is available.
  • First in Florida to perform a Paravalvular Leak Closure using a transapical approach — an option for patients who are not suitable candidates for open heart surgery due to age or medical conditions.
  • First in Florida to use the Prime ECG Vest which, in select patients, may give physicians additional data beyond a traditional electrocardiogram.
  • Our Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP) Lab features a Philips Allura Xper FD10 fluoroscopy system and EP cockpit, which utilizes low frames per second while maintaining image quality, thus reducing radiation exposure to the patient, physician and staff. The EP Lab also utilizes rotational angiography as part of the fluoroscopy equipment, which also results in less radiation exposure.
  • Our team of 24/7 on-call Interventional Cardiologists stands ready to perform emergency cardiac procedures. Our outstanding cardiovascular team, utilizing state-of-the-art technology, can treat any heart and vascular condition, especially in an emergency.

The Jim Moran Legacy at Holy Cross Health

Jim Moran donated $1 million to Holy Cross Health for a cardiovascular intensive care unit after undergoing lifesaving open-heart surgery here in 1988. In 2000, Jim and Jan Moran and JM Family Enterprises contributed $6 million for the construction of the Jim Moran Heart and Vascular Center. The Center specializes in the education, prevention, detection and treatment of cardiac and vascular diseases. Not content to stop there, in 2006 they created a five-year, $26 million challenge -The Moran Challenge - and pledged $10 million to start an institute focusing on early-stage clinical trials in heart and vascular medicine. In essence, The Moran Challenge matches $1.00 for every $1.60 contributed, up to $16 million for this vital research.
