After several reorganizations and changes of the name, in 1998 the clinic became a Branch of the Institute of Cardiology of Tomsk Scientific Center of the Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences and was called Tyumen Cardiology Center. Since 1991 Vadim Anatolievich Kuznetsov, MD, Professor, Honored scientist of the Russian Federation, has been the head of the Center.
At present Tyumen Cardiology Center is a unique scientific, medical and educational institution which is considered to be one of the largest and best equipped in Russia. It is recognized as a leader in the field of high-technology treatment of coronary artery disease, chronic heart failure, arrhythmias. Since 2004 it has been in the top five among 110 Russian clinics that specialize in the use of catheter techniques, regarding the number of angioplasties and stenting procedures being performed.
Over 20 years specialists at the Cardiology Center have been working according to the standards accepted in developed countries and have been inventing their own innovative methods of diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases. Our success in the field of high-technology treatment became possible due to international collaboration within which specialists from the Cardiology Center exchange experience with their foreign colleagues, take part in scientific symposia and congresses as well as receive training at the largest world clinics. The main advantage and distinction of Tyumen Cardiology Center’s activity is a unity of science and practical work. Owing to dynamic development of science the efficacy of cardiovascular diseases treatment constantly increases. In 2011 Tyumen Cardiology Center won the National Award «Purple Heart» in the nomination «Best Cardiology Clinic of the Year in Russia».

Zyrianov, M.I. Bessonova, T.Y. Gorbunova) in the Institution. Many young scientists that will become specialists of Tyumen Cardiology Center in the future, start their career through our residency and fellowship.
Tyumen Cardiology Center has a high performing marketing department. Its staff members annually conduct different prevention events. The main objective of these actions is to draw attention of the population of the region to the problem of cardiovascular diseases and their early detection.
The following events were held: “Be ahead of a disease and win a prize”, “To find and neutralize”, “Hypertension is a silent killer”. In 2005 within the celebration of the World Heart Day a football match between the team of interventional cardiologists of the Cardiology Center and the team of the patients who had been operated on there took place in Tyumen Cardiology Center.
The institution has been actively improving its material and technical basis. New equipment for diagnosis and treatment has been purchased. In 2008 a new operating room, the third one, was opened in the Cardiology Center. In 2013 a new electrophysiology/catheterization laboratory outfitted with the most modern angiography equipment started working in the Center. It will make high-technology medical help available for more patients who need it.
The Cardiology Center has actively worked on improvement of the patient care quality. Everything is done for maximum comfortable staying of patients at hospital. Workstations in other cities have been created so that more patients can consult a cardiologist and undergo assessment for high-technology treatment provided by Tyumen Cardiology Center. Due to realization of this project thousands of patients can undergo diagnosis and high-technology treatment at our Center. And though initially the Center was started to render cardiological care to the population of the Tyumen region, nowadays patients come from many other regions of Russia: Chelyabinsk, Omsk, Kurgan, Sverdlovsk, Perm.
