Hi, my name is Liz Vela and I am the heart valve clinic coordinator for University of Southern California.

Having spent a number of years as the patient advocate for Keck Hospital, I understand the unique needs of our patients and work with the entire CVTI staff to create an environment of “patient first” from the front desk to the operating room every step of the way. Together, with my dedicated staff, we pride ourselves on bringing our patients and their families the answers they need when they need them. We are here to help throughout the process. You can contact me at (866) 306-0952. I look forward to speaking with you.

Kind Regards,
Liz Vela
Clinic Manager, CVTI
Division of Cardiac Surgery
