Cardiology Patients in Central Massachusetts Choose UMass Memorial for Heart Disease Treatment
"I didn't realize I was having a heart attack when I went to the Emergency Department at UMass Memorial Medical Center with symptoms unlike anything I'd felt before. But it was a heart attack, and I collapsed at the entrance of the Emergency Department. The staff resuscitated me three times before I was brought to the Cath Lab and was implanted with a heart pump to help support my heart function. Thanks to the compassionate, excellent care of the UMass Memorial staff during my 12 days in the hospital, my recovery got off to a great start. And since my stay, the Cardiovascular Center where I've gotten my continued care has kept me on course, helping me to further recover my heart, returning me to a very active lifestyle."
