Research

At Spectrum Health, we understand that research and innovation lead to the development of new treatments, drugs and use of medical devices that benefit patients who are diagnosed with the most challenging health conditions, including complex heart and vascular diseases.


At Spectrum Health’s Fred and Lena Meijer Heart Center, we not only provide a wide variety of cardiovascular services, we are dedicated to research uncovering the miracles of cardiac tissue regeneration. Stephan Jovinge, MD, is Spectrum Health’s Medical Director of Cardiovascular Research and he has dedicated his career to finding ways the human heart can repair itself. Dr. Jovinge, and his colleagues, work collaboratively with the VanAndel Research Institute to uncover cardiac treatments of the future.
