Chuck Gerity, a retired police officer and Holy Name Medical Center's vice president of operations, never thought a heart attack could happen to him. He exercises and visits the doctor regularly, so when he experienced symptoms, he couldn't believe it was anything serious. Chuck's wife, however, was alarmed, and called 911 -- just before he collapsed. After receiving care by the first responders in his town, Chuck was transported to Holy Name, where one of the Medical Center's cardiologists performed a cardiac catheterization and implanted a stent. It saved Chuck's life -- a life he appreciates now, more than ever. Learn more at HolyName.org/cardiovascularservices/
