Audio: “The heart staff at Mesa Lutheran that developed the reputation for outstanding cardiac care came from Mesa Lutheran over to the Heart Hospital. We were starting with a new building, we were starting with new attitudes, we were starting with all kinds of new partnerships and arrangements, but we weren’t starting from scratch from an experience standpoint.”

Audio: “The unique partnership that was formed between the Heart Hospital and the physician/owners, even though they are not today financial owners, I think one of the best things to look back at is to notice that they are still emotional owners in that hospital.”
