The Heart of St. Francis | E5

Having a racehorse named after him, Dr. Richard Shlofmitz admits, has been one of the more amusing perks of his job. Richard shares the excitement felt by family and staff when they gathered around the TV to watch Shlofmitz (the horse) come from dead last to win his first race. Alicia returns for her follow-up appointment following her CardioMEMS procedure. She discusses what life as a heart patient is like, the impact it has had on her marriage and her plans to have children, and her commitment to living life positively. Edmond finally has his TAVR procedure. Richard reflects on Edmond’s journey—how what started as an exploratory angiogram to check for blockage in the arteries eventually uncovered lung cancer—and how Edmond is doing today. Dr. Ziad Ali visits the DeMatteis Center for Cardiac Research and Education to discuss advances in state-of-the-art technology and the exciting future of heart procedures. The staff gather for a dinner in honor of a special guest, Dr. Nicholson. Richard invites Dr. Nicholson to see what St. Francis is all about, emphasizing how everyone works together to bring patient care and cardiology to another level.
