The Ocala Heart Institute began its affiliation with Munroe Regional Medical Center in 1988. As the Ocala Heart and Vascular Institute has grown, we now have many affiliated hospitals throughout Florida in addition to Ocala with locations in Leesburg, Citrus, Venice, Winter Haven and Stuart. Year after year our doctors and affiliated hospitals gain recognition and receive numerous awards for excellence in the work they perform. The cardiac program in Venice has been recognized for four consecutive years as a Top 100 Cardiovascular program nationally, and this year, both Venice and Stuart are both rated in the Top 50 Hospitals for Heart Care by Thomson Reuters, a well-respected independent medical rating company.
