purchase of new echocardiography equipment.

A $30,000 gift from Middle Park Medical Foundation enabled Middle Park Medical Center to purchase state-of-the-art echocardiography equipment.

“This gift is made possible because of the generosity of all the people who participated in this year’s BASH event. The cardiology program is a large investment in our community, addressing both current needs and promoting the long-term health of our citizens and visitors,” said MPM Foundation Board Chair Jeff Miller.

The Cardiology program at Middle Park Medical Center means patients who need specialized cardiac care no longer have to take the highway to Denver. Dr. Peter Lemis, Board Certified Cardiologist, with Centura Health is in Granby every other Monday and always available to our physician and cardiac staff.

In addition, the Cardiology program offers cardiac imaging services like echocardiograms, stress tests and cardiac rehabilitation services

MPMC’s Cardiac Rehab program offers patients who have had a cardiac event, have undergone a cardiac intervention and require reconditioning through a monitored exercise program the expertise of specially trained medical professionals. The program is overseen by Alyson Morganstein, BSN, RN, NREMT-P, Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation Coordinator.

“This exciting and important service represents MPMC’s patient- centered approach to care,” says Melinda Graham, cardiac imaging technologist. “Fewer patients with heart disease will need to travel and service will be available for inpatients resulting in improved time to diagnosis.”

Director of Rehabilitation Services Sharon Justice was instrumental in meeting accreditation standards and overseeing the purchasing o new

equipment and technology.
