Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation & Allina Health

The Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation (MHIF) is working to create a world without heart and vascular disease. Through groundbreaking clinical research, professional education and health behavior change programs, we are improving individuals’ quality of life and reducing the mortality rate associated with cardiovascular disease.

As the research, education and philanthropic arm of the Minneapolis Heart Institute, MHIF is an independent, not-for-profit, community-based foundation. Among the top ten clinical cardiovascular research and education institutions in the country, we conduct more than 100 clinical research studies in the course of a year. Locally, we have reduced the 30-day heart attack mortality rate by more than 50% for individuals within a 210 mile radius of Minneapolis. Building upon this protocol, our therapeutic hypothermia trial is further advancing emergency cardiac care services and has improved survival rate by 28%.

The Minneapolis Heart Institute® is recognized internationally as one of the world's leading providers of heart and vascular care. The Institute's programs, a number of which are conducted in conjunction with Abbott Northwestern Hospital, address the full range of heart and vascular health needs: prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.

The Minneapolis Heart Institute® at Abbott Northwestern Hospital is the largest integrated cardiovascular provider in Minnesota, treating more heart attack and heart failure patients than any hospital in Minnesota. Abbott Northwestern Hospital is part of Allina Hospitals & Clinics, a not-for-profit health care system of hospitals, clinics and other patient care services that provides exceptional care to communities throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin and employs more than 22,000 people.
