Shahid Chamran Specialize Center of Cardiovascular Diseases is located on the Eastern side of city of Isfahan, 5 Km away from Bozorgmehr bridge in Salman-e-Farsi (3rd Moshtagh) avenue on the banks of Zayandeh-Roud river.
This center covers an expanse of 11 hectares, donated by a philanthropist named Mr. Haj Abbas Foroughi Abari in year 1968. The first buildings in this complex as a hospital for tuberculous patients in three blocks and 3 floors and one administrative block with total area of 5000 square meters including were constructed shortly after by the Ministry of Health of that time.
This complex became operational on July 1966 for providing services to tuberculous patients and after the decision by ministry of health on 1976 regarding lack of separation between tuberculous patients and other patients after the start of treatment, along with the general medicine ward, the initial center of heart surgery was started by two specialized heart surgeons including Dr. Mohammadali Nafisi from Iran and Dr. Lazman from United States as well as two interns including Dr. Ismaeil Nourmohammadi and Dr. Gholamreza Behdadfar. In 1983, due to the large number of burn patients as a result of Iran – Iran war and lack of specialized burn treatment centers, the burn ward was also added to which center which covered patients including war victims as well as patients from southern and south western regions of Iran. In the year 1985 and with the start of Dr. Masoud Pourmoghadas’ tenure as the president of Chamran educational and treatment center, rapid changes were made to turn this center into a comprehensive center for treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
Due to changes made in this period, the burn treatment ward was transferred to Imam Mousa Kazim Accidents and Burn Hospital in 1989, after which old buildings were rebuilt and converted to new heart surgery and specialized cardiovascular wards.
This center currently operates with 224 active beds with average occupation rate of 82.24% and average hospitalization duration of 4.13 days with all necessary specializations and equipment for treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
