WMHS Heart Institute Celebrates 10 Years of Service

logoIt’s Cause for Celebration!

The Heart Institute at the Western Maryland Health System is celebrating a decade of excellence in cardiac care.  Building upon our solid foundation of diagnostic cardiac services, we established the Heart Institute ten years ago, giving area residents quality open heart surgery and interventional cardiology services close to home.  Our highly skilled physicians and staff are committed to providing superior care and have received many accolades from patients for their exceptional care and compassion.

In recognition of our 10th anniversary of the WMHS Heart Institute, a reception was held on November 21 in the auditorium at the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center on Willowbrook Road.  Several hundred patients who had open heart surgery at WMHS turned out to celebrate with the physicians and staff from the Heart Institute.  Many patients brought their original heart pillow and had their photo taken with Dr. Mark Nelson.

Congratulations to the staff of the WMHS Heart Institute and to the 2,900 patients who have had their heart procedures at WMHS.
