Our History

Founded in 1947 by Nobel Prize Winner Dr. Bernard Lown, the Lown Cardiovascular Group has a rich history of compassionate, non-invasive care and treatment of all types of cardiovascular disease and conditions.

Through the years the Lown Group has been home to some of the world’s leading physicians in the cardiovascular field, physicians who have spent countless hours researching and treating heart disease and conditions.

Dr. Lown has devoted over fifty years to the practice of medicine, the field of cardiology, and the betterment of humankind. He is the author of The Lost Art of Healing and Prescription for Survival: A Doctor’s Journey to End Nuclear Madness.

In 2012 we introduced the groundbreaking Boston Heart program, a fee-based membership program that ensure our patients will be able to receive the the time, attention and high level of care necessary for their cardiac health and well-being.


Medicine is the art of engagement with the human condition rather than with the disease.
