Mission Statement & History
Our mission is to Transform Cardiovascular Care and Improve Heart Health.
We function in consultation with the leadership of the ACC, as an adviser to local and state governmental and professional organizations concerning issues related to cardiovascular specialists. The VCACC keeps in mind the interests of the patients, physicians and the general public as we maintain a high level of social consciousness and involvement with socioeconomic issues which may influence access to high quality cardiovascular health care for all individuals.
The ACC is your professional home for tools and resources that support you in your efforts to provide high quality cardiovascular care to patients worldwide. From training through retirement, membership brings with it benefits that, purchased separately as a nonmember, would cost thousands and help you transform cardiovascular care and improve heart health.
The Virginia Chapter of the American College of Cardiology was recognized as the representative organization of cardiologists in the Commonwealth by the ACC Chapter Relations Committee in February 1989. John C. Quinn, MD, FACC, Governor at the time, was the first to hold the dual titles of ACC Governor for Virginia and President of the VA Chapter.
