Gottsegen Hungarian Institute of Cardiology
Hungary, Budapest
Modern cardiology was born during the period of World War II, when the first heart operations were performed in the United States, Sweden and England and heart catheterization became a routine clinical procedure. There was only one specialist in Hungarian internal medicine, György Gottsegen, who recognized the advent of a new world in cardiology, realizing that without invasive diagnostics, modern cardiology could no longer exist. He was the founder of the Hungarian Institute of Cardiology in 1957 which was become the only centre in Hungary dedicated exclusively to cardiology. The clinical and scientific prestige of the Institute grew rapidly in Hungary and abroad necessitating a modern, more spacious building. In 1977, the Hungarian Institute of Cardiology moved to a modern new building which was already able to host the entire field of non-invasive and invasive cardiology, adult and pediatric cardiology and heart surgery as the largest cardiology centre in Hungary. The Department of Adult Cardiology of the Institute became the Department of Cardiology of the Semmelweis University.
