Lisa and Andre, Gresham, OR
Our Beautiful Baby
"When we went into labor, the only thing we could think about was
getting to the Family Birth
Place. Once we arrived, it felt like we were home. The
birthing room was so comfortable, and the nurses took care of
everything so that all we had to focus on was giving birth to our
beautiful daughter. Our doctor had been there every step of the
way, and her command of that day was like a conductor."
Gammon, Portland, OR
"As a pilot being in optimal health is very important to me.
That's why when it came to my heart I chose the Northwest Regional Heart
Center at Adventist Medical Center."
Barbara Wells, Happy Valley, OR
Robotic Heart Surgery at Northwest Regional Heart and Vascular
When Barbara Wells had trouble breathing she came to Adventist
Medical Center. Her doctors quickly determined that the problem
was with her heart. After deciding that she would need heart
surgery she discussed the option of robotic-assisted surgery with
Dr. Tom Molloy of our Northwest Regional Heart
Center. Together they decided that robotic surgery was the
best option in her case. Dr. Molloy has performed more than 3400
open heart procedures and regularly performs robotic-assisted
minimally invasive hear surgery.
Barbara loves to tell people that she had heart surgery on
Tuesday and was home and feeling much better by Thursday. Barbara
has been so happy with her treatment that she decided to become a
volunteer at Adventist Medical Center. Today it's common to see
her smiling face walking the halls of the hospital providing
assistance to our other patients.
