Dr. Chung is an invasive cardiologist and a nationally recognized heart failure specialist. He is the Director of Heart Failure for both the Ohio Heart and Vascular Center and The Christ Hospital Lindner Center for Research and Education. Currently, Dr. Chung serves as the Heart and Vascular Service Line Director and Chief of Cardiology at The Christ Hospital.

He was born in South Korea and came to the United States when he was 11 years old. After his family settled in the New England area, he was educated at Philips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, after which he attended Yale for his undergraduate degree. He graduated from medical school at the University of Massachusetts subsequently completing an internal medicine residency at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York and University of Massachusetts Medical Center. He then remained at University of Massachusetts for his fellowship in cardiovascular diseases, followed by additional training in transplantation at Columbia University. In 2000, he joined Ohio Heart and Vascular Center to establish the Heart Failure Program.

As a specialist in advanced heart failure and mechanical support, Dr. Chung is excited about the future of the arena and the technologies that are being made. As a clinical researcher, most of his own research revolves around strategies and methods to improve patient care. This spans new technologies, new ways of delivering health care, and improving protocols that are implemented in hospitals. Information technology and outcomes research are also areas of interest for Dr. Chung.

"The concept of treating heart failure has evolved dramatically since the 1990s. Heart failure used to be a death sentence; worse than most cancers, but now we have many tools to take care of such patients. These days, I now look at heart failure a little bit like diabetes. It's a chronic disease you can treat-never cure, but treat effectively-and people can have long, fruitful lives."

Dr. Chung and his wife, Kim Miller, an internal medicine physician at McGrath Health Center of Xavier University, met in medical school. They have two children.
