A cardiologist specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases of the cardiovascular system. The cardiologist will carry out tests, and they may perform some procedures, such as heart catheterizations, angioplasty, or inserting a pacemaker.
Henderson Health Care contracts with Bryan Heart Institute and CHI Nebraska Heart Institute for cardiology services. Doctors hold weekly clinics and perform echocardiograms, EKGs, stress tests, and other diagnostic tests, to examine patients and to oversee patient rehabilitation.
Visiting cardiologists are:
CHI Health Nebraska Heart: Dr. Friesen & Dr. Jain
Bryan Heart Institute: Dr. Johnson, Dr. Baker, Dr. Kummer, Dr. Tessendorf, Dr. Meckel, & Dr. Anchan
“My husband and I were passing though on our way east to see family when my appendix ruptured. Luckily the hospital was a few miles away from our campground. The staff was very caring and attentive. I feel very fortunate that we were so close to this small, but wonderful hospital.”
