tors, and another nurse with a machine, to see my heart. They looked and talked, and Dr. My- ers sat right down next to me and asked, ‘Marion, how are you doing?’ So we just talked for a little while about how I felt. He was so very personable. Dr. Myers is very sweet. He also talked to Phil because he could see that Phil was upset. He is a good listener, he’s gentle, and he reassured Phil. I liked Dr. Myers from the first minute I talked to him.  “Everyone just took such good care of me. They put a call in and two more cardiologists came over to talk about what was happening. They decided I hadn’t had a heart attack but they found inflammation around my heart. “Pericarditis - that’s what caused my pain. Dr. Myers rec- ognized the symptoms and said that his father had this same condition several years ago. At this point, I knew I was going to be alright.  “I was released from the hos- pital and had to take medicine at home for about a week. Dr. Myers released me as a patient and I have been fine ever since. I have only ever had a general practitioner. I never had a heart doctor, but, if I ever need a heart doctor, I’ll be back to see Dr. Myers. The team in Dr. My- ers’ office is so wonderful. We laughed and joked a lot. They always gave me a chuckle.  “Later my daughter teased me, saying, ‘Mom, I know why you did it. I think you didn’t want to have the stress test and that’s why you blacked out.’ Of course I didn’t do that, it just happened that way. But, I wasn’t really looking forward to the stress test.  “Starting in the Emergency Department and including everyone in the Cardiac Stress Testing area, everyone was so personal and professional. You would have thought my last name was Beebe! During my stay there was never a minute that I didn’t think things weren’t being taken care of. It was quite an experience and it was a good one - it really was. I think about how I felt the night I went in and how I felt two days later when I came home, and it was like night and day.”  Beebe is the only hospital on Delmarva recognized by Healthgrades as America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Coronary Intervention Procedures in 2017. The recognition places Beebe among the Top 5 percent of hos- pitals in the nation for coronary intervention procedures. Jeffrey M. Fried, president & CEO, Beebe Healthcare, said, “Our cardiologists are always quick to point out that what they are able to do, in serving our com- munity, is only possible because we have such a wonderful team of nurses, clinicians, and other staff who support their efforts to provide the best possible care for their patients. It is an honor to have such a dedicated team of cardiac professionals in place at Beebe, and all of our team members across our organiza- tion take great pride in the cardiac programs our doctors and clinicians have developed over the years.”  As a community-owned, not- for-profit healthcare system, Beebe continues to depend on the generous support of in- dividuals, corporations, busi- nesses, and private foundations.

Ready to make his first step forward, he attended a bariatric seminar where he met Dr.Thomas Barnett, who inspired him to join the program. “There was something serious but very sincere about him. And I remember thinking it was rare.” The months leading up to his gastric sleeve surgery were challenging, but with Dr. Barnett and his team by his side, he’s now a proud graduate and advocate of the program. “Dr. Barnett didn’t just give me a new life —he gave me freedom.” I took his DEDICATION home with me.
