Metro Health gains support for an open heart program
News

WYOMING, Mich. (WZZM)- A West Michigan hospital is gaining support from some major health systems for a new open heart program.  Metro Health announced that the University of Michigan Health System, Trinity Health and Borgess Hospital support the application. 

Metro has been working with Saint Mary's Health Care, Mercy Health Partners and several cardiologists to start the program in Kent County.

Metro Health's Ellen Bristol says, "We believe that choice is a very important part of healthcare.  Allowing us to have an open heart program would allow us to have more services offered in our hospital so that patients don't have to start treatment in our hospital and then get transferred downtown."

The hospital filed its application for an open heart program with the state Health Department in July.  It will soon go into the full review process.
