Baltimore – LifeBridge Health has announced that interventional cardiologist Henry Sun, M.D., has been promoted to director of the LifeBridge Health Cardiovascular Institute (CVI), a multidisciplinary center offering comprehensive care for a full range of heart and vascular illnesses as well as conducting leading-edge cardiac research.

“Dr. Sun is an accomplished cardiologist and skilled administrator, who has proven himself to be a collaborative leader and strategic thinker. He is well respected by his colleagues, and having spent his entire career in Maryland, his knowledge of our state’s unique reimbursement system and established professional relationships with peers at other health systems, as well as his understanding of LifeBridge Health and the CVI itself, will be key assets in this new role,” says Matthew Poffenroth, M.D., chief physician executive and senior vice president at LifeBridge Health.

I am excited for the opportunity to bring all of our talents and energy together under one umbrella, to learn from each other and continue to bring the best for our patients,” says Dr. Sun.

He adds, “I am fortunate to work with talented and passionate healthcare professionals throughout the LifeBridge Health system.
