Cardiac care options may expand in Alexandria


[Echo Press, May 09, 2014] Douglas County Hospital (DCH) has taken preliminary steps to provide cardiology services locally. DCH announced Wednesday it has signed a letter of intent to partner with Minneapolis Heart Institute to offer cardiac care services.

Currently, for cardiac events that can’t be treated locally, patients are transferred to other hospitals with capacity for a higher level of cardiac care.

Minneapolis Heart Institute, part of Allina Health, has an office at Alexandria Clinic and has been part of the clinic for 20 years.
