Ribbon-cutting held at new Heart and Vascular Institute clinic

A ribbon-cutting and open house on Thursday, May 10, celebrated the new Penn State Hershey Heart and Vascular Institute-Hanover. The opening marks a significant expansion of Penn State Hershey’s heart and vascular services in the Hanover community. The practice is located in Hillside Medical Center at 250 Fame Ave., Suite 101. Among those on hand for the ribbon-cutting were Harold L. Paz, CEO of Penn State Hershey Medical Center and dean of Penn State College of Medicine; and Larry Sinoway, director of Penn State Hershey Heart and Vascular Institute.

The expansion of care is part of Penn State Hershey’s broader and continuing effort to provide people with greater access to highly specialized care where they live. Nearly a dozen cardiac physicians will hold regularly scheduled office hours in Hanover. Penn State Hershey continues to work with Hanover Hospital to provide York and Adams County cardiology patients with increased access to clinical studies and enhanced, specialized care. Since 2006, a team of Penn State Hershey cardiologists has provided consultations for advanced heart failure, rhythm disorders, interventional cardiology, and pediatric cardiology needs in Hanover. In addition, interventional Penn State Hershey cardiologists provide cardiac catheterization services at Hanover Hospital.
