Cardiac Care- Tyler Heart Institute  

A Special Message from the Medical Director of the Tyler Heart Institute

Every Beat Counts...

Dr. Richard Gray, THI Medical DirectorRichard J. Gray, M.D.,
Medical Director of Tyler
Heart Institute

I want to welcome you to our Tyler Heart Institute web site. I hope you find it informative and easy to navigate. We have recently made changes to reflect our growing programs and to make it easier to use. 

It has been three short years since the initiation of interventional cardiology and open-heart surgery at Community Hospital. Those are just two components of a very longstanding cardiac program that includes prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. We are very proud of our quality results, which compare favorably to national scores. I encourage you to check these out on the web site. I attribute this success to the highly experienced and committed team of doctors, nurses, and staff that we have been fortunate to assemble. The biggest goal of the Tyler Heart Institute is to provide high-quality, results-driven care with outstanding service. Your experience should feel seamless - from prevention to diagnosis to treatment to recovery.

I know that no one comes to a healthcare facility just to say hello, but if you do find yourself at Community Hospital or want to learn more about heart disease and our outstanding program, I invite you to come and meet me in person. Although I have been a cardiologist for many years, I am relatively new to Community Hospital, and I look forward to talking with you. Please stop by the hospital information desk, where someone can help guide you to my office. My door is almost always open.  I hope you will drop in. My direct phone line is (831) 622-8069 and my e-mail address is:  Or if you prefer, call Val Brown our administrative assistant at (831) 625-4538 and ask her to set up a formal appointment to learn more.

Best regards.
