New Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Centre

An all-encompassing campus to serve as a model of health care delivery, innovation and apprenticeship that can change the future of global health.

This is why we are launching the next chapter of the Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Foundation. With it, we seek to truly alter the landscape of cardiac care.

The new Magdi Yacoub Global Heart Centre will expand the scale of our impact beyond Aswan to Cairo – and it will serve as a model and template for others to follow.

The new centre will add 300 beds to our health network while expanding the scale of our research and training programs. Being centrally located in Egypts hub of Cairo will allow us to improve our connectedness to other countries, provide better access to care, and increase opportunities for medical and research collaboration.

Building such an impressive and impactful Centre of Excellence in a resource-poor and vulnerable community will not only show others what is possible in developing contexts. It will challenge them to do more on behalf of vulnerable populations and forgotten communities – whether that is to implement a similar model of care, research and education, or to innovate a new solution for greater health and well-being.

Changes like these are better called revolutions, going beyond simple medicine or vaccinations to invest in skilled practitioners who can provide ongoing quality care to patients, dedicating time and resources to medical and scientific discovery, and transferring knowledge to the next generation of providers who can ensure that impact is sustained and long-lasting.
