Patients celebrate new hearts with doctors

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN, Ohio - Surgeons and patients celebrated renewed hearts on Wednesday evening.

More than 70 patients who underwent heart surgery over the past year met with the heart and vascular team from Saint Elizabeth Health Center.

"We just wanted to see them outside of the hospital, in their normal clothes doing normal things, and so we invite them here," says cardiac surgeon Jeffrey Fulton. "So we invite them here, we have dinner with them, we converse with they. They thank us, we thank them." 

Humility of Mary Health Partners is an integrated health system and a region of Catholic Health Partners in Cincinnati.

It is the largest health system in Ohio, and one of the largest Catholic health systems in the United States.
