About Thomas I. Murtaugh, MD

Dr. Murtaugh provides excellent cardiology care for a variety of cardiovascular issues. He has a special interest in heart issues related to cancer treatment and cancer survivorship. A member of the International Cardioncology Society, Dr. Murtaugh serves as director of our Cardio-Oncology Program.

Holding certification in nuclear cardiology (advanced stress testing) and echocardiography (imaging the heart with sound waves), Dr. Murtaugh is also a member of The American College of Cardiology, The American Society of Echocardiography and the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology.

Dr. Murtaugh was born and raised in Scranton, Pennsylvania. His mother, Mary, ran a catering business out of their home while his father, Jack, managed a hospital kitchen. Over time Dr. Murtaugh worked in just about every area of a hospital including dietary, transporting, emergency room (orderly) and radiation therapy. With the assistance of a benefactor, he was able to attend the local prep school where the idea of becoming a doctor took hold; and then he went to Boston College where that dream became a reality.

At BC, he met his wife, Lisa. Tom and Lisa have been together ever since. Ironically, their first discussion was about the famous medical painting, "The Gross Clinic", by American painter Thomas Eakins. Lisa worked in the museum field before raising their two boys, Christopher and Andrew, full time.

Dr. Murtaugh loves skiing and can often be found praying for snow and cold. He is a huge fan of live standup comedy along with music (especially jazz). He is an amateur DJ and a two-time Ironman Louisville finisher (but just barely).
