 A sound heart is music to your ears

Heart & Vascular Institute

Don Caldwell is well-known in the Lubbock community primarily for his activities in the music industry. He owns and operates a recording studio here in town and until recently owned historic venue the Cactus Theatre, which brings different regional acts to town as well as hosting up-and-coming local artists.

Caldwell has suffered multiple heart attacks in 2010. After his second heart attack, physicians at the Covenant Heart and Vascular Institute performed a double bypass and his right lung collapsed. Caldwell credits our cardiac team for saving his life and has undergone ongoing treatment with us over the last six years including receiving a pacemaker. His story was followed closely by the media back in 2010 and Caldwell remains visible in the community. While he sold the Cactus Theatre earlier this year, he still operates his recording studio and helps provide acts for the theatre.
