The heart is a muscular organ about the size of a fist, located at the center of our chest that pumps blood through the network of arteries and veins. It pumps around 6 liters of blood per minute. The heart’s vital performance can be affected by a number of factors, causing it to beat too slow, too fast, or even cause it to fail. Aside from physical ailments, emotions such as joy, sadness, and grief can positively or negatively affect the heart’s performance and health.
Figuratively, the deepest and most noble thoughts and feelings, as well as the darker ones, have been attributed to originating from the heart. Matters of the heart are the most important things in our lives and move us deeply. They bring us joy and laughter, along with sadness and tears. They are things that touch our hearts, fill our hearts, and break our hearts. They are what makes us fully human. Matters of the heart connect us to each other and to God.
This exhibition showcases new and original works of art by Dr. Julio Rodriguez-Lopez (renowned vascular surgeon) in acrylic paint with some new watercolor features. These pieces in essence merge the clinical with the metaphorical presentations of the heart and reveal the connection between both.

Hospitals are required to be joint commission accredited in order to provide the safest and appropriate care for their patients. But Accreditation is not required for outpatient centers such as Western Vascular Institute. Western Vascular requests these audits and subjects themselves to intense scrutiny to show our patients our continued commitment to quality care & outcomes in vein and artery treatments.
Are All Vein and Vascular centers accredited?
No, in fact, Western Vascular Institute is the only Vein and Vascular group in Arizona providing in-office care, dedicated to peripheral vascular disease accredited by The Joint Commission.
We believe that quality is the result of excellent work without compromise.
