Success Stories

"The professional team at SOMC saved my life". David

David came into the SOMC emergency department knowing something was not right. He was quickly assessed by the SOMC team. David was having a heart attack. A major artery that supplies vital blood to the heart was blocked. A stent was inserted to open the blocked artery and restore blood flow. From the time David arrived at SOMC to the time a stent was placed was 73 minutes, well-below the American Heart Association standard of 90 minutes. Time is muscle. Now, thanks to SOMC Heart & Vascular Services, David says he has more time to spend doing the things that matter most.
