Heart specialist Dr. Chauncey Crandall was chosen as one of the Palm Beach Elite 100 in 2010, in part for his work as an interventional cardiologist at the prominent Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic in Palm Beach County, Florida.
The Palm Beach Elite 100, a part of the Palm Beach Daily News, are considered to be “100 People Who Get Things Done”. They represent leaders in many fields, including medicine and health, business, the arts, faith, education, law, and more.
The reasons for his being chosen are numerous. While Dr. Crandall repairs hearts during his work life, in his personal time, he participates in missionary work and helps fund medical clinics worldwide. He founded the nonprofit Chadwick Foundation in the memory of his son Chad, who died in 2004 at age 15 following a battle with leukemia.
Dr. Chauncey Crandall is Chief of the Cardiac Transplant Program at the Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic, where he practices interventional, vascular, and transplant cardiology. He received his medical post-graduate training at Yale University School of Medicine, and his cardiology fellowship training at Beth Israel hospital and Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York City.
In 1993, Dr. Crandall accepted a faculty appointment at Duke University and then relocated to Palm Beach, Florida, where he established the Duke University Cardiology Program affiliated within the cardiology division of Good Samaritan Hospital in the Palm Beach area. He is presently on staff at the Palm Beach Gardens, Good Samaritan, and Jupiter Hospitals.
He has conducted numerous research studies and published scientific research in several medical journals, including The Journal of the American College of Cardiology and Circulation. Additionally, as medical editor of the popular Newsmax Health publication Heart Health Report, Dr. Crandall is able to reach many thousands of readers monthly with his personal mission to provide health, healing, and hope. He is currently finishing his second book.
