Dr. Cary L. Stowe Endowed Chair for Cardiovascular Surgery
In November 2016, the Foundation Board announced $1.25 million of an estate gift would be used to establish the Dr. Cary L. Stowe Endowed Chair for Cardiovascular Surgery.
Under Dr. Stowe’s leadership, Indian River Medical Center has created a heart program rivaling the quality and outcomes of major medical centers throughout the United States. Medical Director, Cardiovascular Surgery Services, Dr. Stowe was named a ‘Top Doctor’ by U.S. News & World Report. He is one of the country’s most highly regarded aortic, cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons. Dr. Stowe trained at the University of Alabama in Birmingham, Barnes Hospital at Washington University in St. Louis, Methodist Hospital in Houston, and Emory University in Atlanta. Board certified in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Stowe has performed more than 9,000 heart surgeries. He has held leadership positions in several national cardiovascular associations.
In looking to the future, the Foundation board has recognized there are endowment strategies which will allow Indian River Medical Center to sustain the level of excellence achieved through visionary leadership and philanthropic support. Sustaining the current caliber of leadership for the Welsh Heart Center is chief among those pivotal opportunities.
