West Chester-Area residents are now able to receive more technologically advanced heart care closer to home at West Chester Hospital. Through a national research study, cardiologists with UC Health, Ohio Heart and Vascular Center, and Middletown Cardiovascular Associates will be providing coronary angioplasty and stenting services at West Chester Hospital.

“Together, the hospital and the cardiology staff are developing a more sophisticated heart care program to ensure quality care for patients in this area.” says Massoud Leesar, MD, medical director of the cardiac catheterization lab and UC Health cardiologist. “This is an important step for the hospital to provide this level of cardiac care service to the community. Emergency Medicine Squads will now be able to bring patients here that they were not previously able to do, saving time and potentially lives,” says Kevin Joseph, MD, interim president of West Chester Hospital and UC Health physician.

Cardiac services available include inpatient congestive heart failure care, cardiac imaging, electrophysiology, and coronary and peripheral angioplasty.
