Atlantis, Fl — On staff at JFK Medical Center since 2011, Dr. Marcos Nores is truly a HERO in the medical community. He exemplifies a professional, caring, skilled surgeon and leads our hospital’s largest service line as the Medical Director of our Heart & Vascular Institute, Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Director of the Valve Clinic.
Paving the way for the future of heart and vascular care in Palm Beach County, he began the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) Program in 2012, which has grown to become the largest TAVR Program in the state of Florida. Additionally, the Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement (TMVR) and Mitral Valve Repair programs followed soon after.
Seeing a need to accommodate patients with heart failure in South Florida, Dr. Nores envisioned JFK becoming a Heart Failure Center, and in 2016, The Advanced Heart Failure Center at JFK was established. Through his leadership and dedication, he was instrumental in recruiting the Heart Failure Center’s team of physicians, as well ancillary support staff. The program is rapidly growing, and is the most active in our community, helping patients live life to the fullest.
In 2017, Dr. Nores received the JFK HERO Physician Award for being trusted, caring and respectful, as well as providing outstanding service to his patients, colleagues, and staff alike.
As a teaching facility, Dr. Nores is a mentor to many. He collaborates on a multitude of research projects, both locally and nationally.
Committed to the advancement of cardiovascular care, Dr. Nores sits on the Cardiovascular Surgery Council and Cardiovascular Research Council through HCA Healthcare.
Making outstanding contributions to the medical community in Palm Beach County, we are appreciative for his surgical expertise, dedication, and drive to elevate cardiovascular care to new levels, and enhance the quality of care patients receive.
