ORLive Presents: Advances in Cardiac Care Featuring Dr. Mehmet Oz

Live Webcast: From Bon Secours St. Francis Health System: August 22, 2008 at 2:30 PM EDT (18:30 UTC)

GREENVILLE, SC--(Marketwire - August 12, 2008) - Join leading cardiac specialists from Bon Secours St. Francis Health System in Greenville, South Carolina as they host a live webcast featuring the latest advances in cardiac care. This webcast will include commentary from world renowned cardiac surgeon and best-selling author Dr. Mehmet Oz, to showcase how cutting edge technology at St. Francis is helping save lives. Some of the areas highlighted during the program will include the new cardiac catheterization lab at St. Francis, and the state-of-the-art 64-slice CT scan which is changing how physicians diagnose heart disease and chest pain.

Dr. Oz relates, "One of the most important things I look for when I evaluate a healing community, and I think St. Francis has that raw material, is how well they provide the holistic care to their patients. Do you go past just the automatic, reflexive, life-saving intervention you made on somebody to open a closed artery and make sure it doesn't happen again? Do you educate the community? Do you see each patient as part of an army that can go home and share the lessons you've shared with them, so they can pass on the information. And if we can do this intelligently, we can build an America that's a lot healthier to live in."
