Rebecca Evan's Story
"My heart failed...but my doctors didn't"
Rebecca Evans is a very lucky woman. "I was so fortunate to have been in Methodist Hospital when my heart stopped during emergency triple bypass surgery. Because if I wasn't, I might not be here today."
What saved Rebecca's life was the exceptional skill of the cardiac surgeons, and one of the world's most advanced cardiac support devices. It functioned like an artificial heart. Grafted on to Rebecca's own heart, the device allowed it to rest, heal and recover during a 10-day period - a period that included extraordinary care from Methodist's amazing cardiac staff, with two personal, around-the-clock intensive care nurses.
Rebecca is just one of the thousands of success stories of the Methodist Cardiology program. During the past 12 months alone, we performed nearly 350 open-heart surgeries, an extensive number for any size hospital.
We specialize in:
- Coronary Bypass
- Valve Replacement
- Balloon Angioplasty
When it comes to diagnosing and stopping a heart attack, the Methodist Hospital Chest Pain Center team is one of the best in the country. And because of our Cardiology program's extraordinary success rate, shortened lengths of stay and reduced costs, we're fast becoming the first choice of patients and doctors alike.
Methodist provides highly advanced and comprehensive care combined with the extra personal attention and compassion you deserve. Rebecca Evans says it best. "There were a lot of patients in the hospital, but the staff made me feel as if I were the only one. It was truly about me."
