On June 7, residents from Villa St. Benedict in Lisle listened to an informative presentation by Dominick Stella, MD, Interventional Cardiologist from Heart Care Centers and Medical Director of the Cardiac Cath Lab at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital. Accompanying Dr. Stella to VSB was his nurse, Nancy Lynch and a team from the hospital that included, Kathy Sievertsen (Business Development Director), Diane Tentler (Physician Liaison) and Lynne Vehlewald (Medical Liaison). The team brought appetizers and backpack goody bags for over 50 residents that were in attendance. Director of Nursing at Villa St. Benedict, Lori D’Auben, arranged for the event to be brought on campus.
Dr. Stella talked extensively about cardiovascular disease including risk factors, symptoms and available tests. He also discussed when to have major surgery and the full range of minimally invasive diagnostic/ therapeutic options. The residents asked very thoughtful questions and were able to interact directly with the doctor.
Adventist Bolingbrook which opened in 2008 is located just nine miles south of Villa St. Benedict. This newly-formed partnership between the hospital and VSB will bring even more interesting subjects to this senior community.
