New Hampshire heart patients may come south
Boston hospitals may see an influx of New Hampshire heart patients while Concord Hospital's 10-year-old cardiac surgery practice is shut down this summer, the Concord Monitor reports today.
The hospitals' two surgeons, who took jobs elsewhere, performed about 175 open-heart operations a year, the story says.
Possible contenders to help run Concord Hospital's heart surgery program in a future partnership include Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, the story said.
