Texas Heart Institute
Reducing heart disease & advancing heart health through research, education and improved patient care.
The Texas Heart Institute (THI) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the devastating toll of cardiovascular disease through innovative and progressive programs in research, education and improved patient care.
Texas Heart Institute was founded by Dr. Denton A. Cooley in 1962. Its location in and affiliations with St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital 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.
THI 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.
