A world-first facility treats the complex, multisystem health needs of adults with this little-understood genetic disease

"I really like going because you can get all your tests done in one place," says Genevieve Dalglish. "I’m treated like gold. I like my doctors very much." Ms. Dalglish is talking about the Dalglish Family Hearts and Minds Clinic for adults, at the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC).

Unlike traditional clinic decor, there is very little metal. Instead, when you walk in, the foyer looks more like the entranceway of a home. There is carpet on the floor, and the waiting room looks more like a living room with a light-grey leather sectional couch. The lights are warm, not harsh, and the reception desk is neatly tucked away. Add some warmth with wood accents, and the Dalglish Clinic feels more like a comfortable, well-appointed condo than a medical clinic.
