The video also features former NGMC/NGHC patient, and 1973 Masters Champion, Tommy Aaron. Mr. Aaron came to NGMC in 2007 after suffering stomach pains while swinging clubs and exercising. Cardiologists ran several tests and discovered his left artery, often called the "widow maker" for its common involvement with massive heart attacks, was 85 percent blocked. They quickly used a stent to expand the artery and increase blood flow, which the Gainesville native says saved his life.
"I’ve traveled the world during my career, but it’s nice to know that the #1 heart hospital in the state is waiting when I come home to Gainesville," says Aaron. "Northeast Georgia Medical Center is great!"
Northeast Georgia Medical Center is Georgia's #1 Heart Hospital for the sixth year in a row, according to HealthGrades®. Learn more about NGMC's ratings by visiting www.nghs.com/heart-services.
