History of Tyumen Cardiology Research Center began in 1983 when the Ministry of Health of the USSR issued the regulation on “Establishing a cardiology clinic of Tomsk Branch of the All-Union Cardiology Scientific Center of the USSR Academy of Medical Sciences in Tyumen since the 1st of January, 1984”. The official opening of the cardiology clinic was held on May 21, 1985.
In 1985, the clinic of the Tomsk branch was transformed into independent branch. Three years later, the branch became independent institute and was transferred to the Siberian branch of the USSR Academy of Medical Sciences. The transformed institution was named Research Institute of Clinical and Preventive Cardiology.
In 1998, Research Institute of Clinical and Preventive Cardiology was reorganized into Tyumen Cardiology Center - Branch of Cardiology Research Institute of Tomsk Research Center of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences. At all times, Tyumen Cardiology Center was headed by prominent scientists and leaders who made great contribution to development of science and the organization of cardiac care in the region: Buganov A.A. (1984-1986), Vasiltsev Ya.S. (1986-1988), Antonov O.S. (1988-1991), Kuznetsov V.A. (1991-2017).
Now the institution is headed by M.I. Bessonova, Honored Physisian of the Russian Federation.
In the first years of the institution's existence, famous scientists, who were considered the luminaries of world cardiology of that time, came to Tyumen by the order of Evgeny Ivanovich Chazov, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences. He wanted them to help the young clinic to enhance the prestige of Russian cardiology.
After several reorganizations and changes of the name, in 1998 the clinic became Tyumen Cardiology Research Center - Branch of Tomsk National Research Medical Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences of Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences.
At present Tyumen Cardiology Research 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, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias.
