The Heart of the Matter

Diseases of the heart are the No. 1 non-accidental cause of death in Tioga County

 

by Joe Carreon - March 7, 2014

Diseases of the heart are the number one, non-accidental cause of death in Tioga County. Susquehanna Health and Cleveland Clinic are bringing new hope to the people of our area in battling these deadly trends.

The Cleveland Clinic has what is regarded by many to be the number one cardiovascular health program in the world. Dr. William McCauley, Dr. Bruce Lytle, and Dr. Michael Lazar shared how Susquehanna Health aspires to be the best of the best through this new affiliation.

Susquehanna Health announced their affiliation with Cleveland Clinic’s Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart and Vascular Institute. The affiliation combines the academic, clinical and research components of Cleveland Clinic with the regional leader in cardiac services in north-central Pennsylvania.

The Ohio-based Cleveland Clinic has been ranked No. 1 in heart care by U.S. News & World Report for 19 consecutive years.

“For nearly forty years, Susquehanna Health’s heart program has been a leader in this community. We are excited to add Cleveland Clinic’s quality and reputation to our own,” says Michael Lazar, MD, Medical Director of Susquehanna Health Heart & Vascular Institute. “I am honored to be a part of such a strong team of quality physicians both at Susquehanna Health and Cleveland Clinic. I look forward to incorporating their best practices and learning from our peers at Cleveland Clinic. Our patients will benefit from this affiliation as we grow our knowledge of cardiac care and the new treatments and therapies we can offer.”

“Collaborations like this are good for patients because they are evidence that their local healthcare provider is striving to provide them with the most advanced care and has a future-looking focus,” says Bruce Lytle, MD, Chairman, Cleveland Clinic Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute. “Susquehanna Health’s Heart & Vascular Institute is clearly committed to high quality patient care, and by affiliating with Cleveland Clinic, it is fostering relationships and building bridges that will allow it to continue raising the bar for heart care in north-central Pennsylvania.”

Once the program is fully implemented, Susquehanna Health patients will benefit from the latest development in research trends and shared treatment protocols and best practices offered through Cleveland Clinic. Beyond weekly regular communications such as Grand Rounds teleconferencing between the two organizations’ heart and vascular clinical staffs, plans for Susquehanna Health’s Heart & Vascular Institute’s team also include visits to Cleveland to view their operations and speak with representatives in related services such as Pharmacy, Respiratory Therapy and Cardiac Rehabilitation.
