SMMC Welcomes New Cardiology Group
“Dr. Masrani and Dr. Robbins are well regarded by their loyal, well-established patient base throughout Wyandotte and Leavenworth counties,” said Samuel H. Turner, President & CEO. “We are honored for the opportunity to continue providing hospital care to their patients. This decision also aligns with our goal of building a regional cardiac program. “
SMMC has received the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Get With The Guidelines Gold Sustained Performance Achievement Recognition for Coronary Artery Disease, Congestive Heart Failure and Stroke. In addition, SMMC qualified for AHA’s Mission: Lifeline Recognition for heart attack care. In 2010, the hospital once again achieved Chest Pain Center Accreditation for another three years and was designated a Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission for Primary Stroke Centers.
In addition to its team of 14 cardiologists, SMMC has two well-respected cardiothoracic surgeons on staff; Clarke Henry, Jr., MD, FACS, and Kevin Mayor, MD, FACS.
