Cardiac Catheterization & Open Heart Surgery

William Bond loves to travel, especially to Arizona, where several of his family members live. But the Arizona trip he’d planned for October was unexpectedly cancelled, due to chest pain that led him to the Allegiance Heart and Vascular Center for open-heart surgery.

William appreciated being able to stay in one large, private room for his entire stay at the Heart and Vascular Center— which he found “very comfortable and accommodating.” He also appreciated the staff who cared for him. “They made sure I knew what to expect every day, and they had me up and walking the day after surgery,” he said. “Someone was always there for me.”

His transition back home also went smoothly, William said. “Before I left the hospital, the nurses arranged to have physical therapists and nurses come to my home. They took care of everything so I could focus on getting better.”
