About the Muriel I. Kauffman Women's Heart Center

Heart & Vascular | Women's Heart Care

Saint Luke’s established the Women’s Heart Center in 1994, the first of its kind in the United States to take a proactive role in addressing women’s heart health.

In 2004, we received a substantial gift from Kansas City philanthropist Julia Irene Kauffman. The Center was named in honor of her mother. In 2010, the new Muriel I. Kauffman Women's Heart Center was unveiled at Saint Luke's Hospital.

The facility allowed us to expand our services, including community health programs, cooking classes, and more. Here, women receive the latest state-of-the-art care based on proven, multidisciplinary research-based protocols.
