Dr. Mukul S. Chandra Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Disease Prevention and Rehabilitation Center


Dr. Mukul S. Chandra was a beloved educator, community health advocate, and cardiologist at Premier Health. Dr. Chandra served as Medical Director of Cardiac Preventive Care and Research at Miami Valley Hospital and was an assistant clinical professor at Wright State University. He created HeartWorks, a convenient, affordable, and comprehensive evaluation of heart attack risk factors.  

Dr. Chandra cared deeply for so many. He was known for his kind words and warm smile, his compassionate and caring nature, and his extraordinary dedication. To honor his legacy and his profound commitment to improving the health and well-being of others, the Miami Valley Hospital Foundation is fundraising in his honor. 



In December 2022, the current cardiopulmonary patient rehab space at the Miami Valley Hospital main campus will be relocated to Miami Valley Hospital South in Centerville. The Miami Valley Hospital Foundation is conducting a fundraising campaign to defray the costs of the project and the completed facility will be named in honor of Dr. Chandra. 

Dr. Chandra was excited about the prospect of creating an improved cardiac and pulmonary rehab space. In keeping his dream alive, the Dr. Mukul S. Chandra Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Disease Prevention and Rehabilitation Center, will accommodate the growing needs of our community and provide greater access for the 250 patients who use this center every week. 

“This new center will be a fitting tribute to Dr. Chandra’s high standards of caring and clinical expertise,” said Jenny Lewis, president and CEO, Miami Valley Hospital Foundation. “Many patients currently participating in rehab were treated by Dr. Chandra. He was excited about creating a new space and his family is so grateful to help us fulfil his dream for his patients.  



The Dr. Mukul S. Chandra Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Disease Prevention and Rehabilitation Center offers both preventative and rehabilitative cardiac and pulmonary programming. Gifts will support renovation projects that will provide a larger workout area, additional pieces of exercise equipment, new technology, updated locker rooms, convenient access for patients with handicap accessibility, and ample parking spots adjacent to the facility. This site also allows for future growth and innovation. The new center will honor Dr. Chandra’s legacy and the patients he loved.   

The Miami Valley Hospital Foundation has committed to raise $500,000 for the project, which will include the cost of the renovation, the acquisition of new exercise equipment and innovative technologies, and to allow for future expansion of the rehab program for our community. To make a contribution, please click on the Make A Donation button.
