The Puerto Rico Chapter of the American College of Cardiology regrets to inform the untimely death of Dr. Raúl García Rinaldi. He is a pioneer in the Cardiovascular Surgery field in Puerto Rico and a world class surgeon who healed thousands of patients during his lifetime passion. We are left with his legacy, honor and dedication to always be nothing but our best. He was a surgeon of the people but above all his duty to preserve life. We are heartbroken and saddened but will continue to persevere during these troubling times to follow in his footsteps of a lifetime of service, teaching and nobility. The Puerto Rico Chapter of the American College of Cardiology, physician members and the Governing Board wish to all his family, friends, and colleagues that they may find solitude in his living heritage. Rest in peace my friend.
