About Pat and Jim Calhoun

Pat and Jim Calhoun standing next to the Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center signBoth Pat and Jim Calhoun lost parents to heart disease and, because of this, they have been instrumental in supporting cardiology research at UConn Health. In 2003, UConn officials announced that the cardiology program, including all patient services, education, and research, would be named in honor of the Calhouns for their ongoing passion and generosity in the fight against heart disease.

Jim put it best when he said, “We have to do all we can to make sure no child comes home to find a parent is no longer with them because they have died prematurely from heart disease.”


The Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center has received numerous awards for our treatment of heart failure, stroke, severe heart attacks, overall cardiovascular care, and many others.
