ACC Sets New Vision for the Future

As part of its 2019-2023 Strategic Plan development process, the ACC’s Board of Trustees recently reaffirmed the College’s mission to transform cardiovascular care and improve heart health, while creating and approving a new vision statement that envisions “a world where innovation and knowledge optimize cardiovascular care and outcomes.” The aspirational statement was developed with input from members, staff and external experts representing over 54 organizations, including 28 health systems, 16 universities and 10 companies like IBM and Google. “This new vision will serve as the guidepost for all the College’s efforts going forward,” said ACC President Mary Norine Walsh, MD, FACC. “Even more importantly, it will help ACC leaders, members and staff as they continue to develop and finalize the next strategic plan and update the College’s core values and strategic goals.” Read more about the new vision on
