Mission The mission of the Texas Heart Institute is to reduce the devastating toll of cardiovascular disease through innovative programs in research, education and improved patient care.

Texas Heart Institute is a nonprofit organization founded by Dr. Denton A. Cooley in 1962. Its location in and affiliations with St. Luke's Medical Center and Texas Children's Hospital assured that all age groups would be treated and freed the Institute of the burden of financing a health care facility. Patient care information is available here.

Texas Heart Institute is a nonprofit organization in the truest sense. Unlike most institutions that have a source of operating revenue, Texas Heart Institute relies solely on government grants, research contracts and, above all, philanthropy. In fact, donations from grateful patients, foundations, corporations, physicians, and the general public account for more than half of the Institute's annual operating budget.
