Join us for some Heart R&R

Kentucky Heart Institute open house May 16

Join us for a little Heart R&R at an open house from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 16, at the Kentucky Heart Institute (KHI) offices, on the second floor of Medical Plaza B, 613 23rd St., Ashland.

The open house celebrates completion of renovation work, which began last fall. The new space provides a larger waiting area, additional exam rooms, and private areas for patient check-in and discharge. Physicians and staff of the three practices that comprise the KHI – Cardiothoracic Surgeons of Kentucky, Kentucky Heart & Vascular Physicians and Comprehensive Heart & Vascular Associates – will participate in the event.

Educational talks with heart and vascular specialists will be presented:

  • 1:30-1:50 p.m. “Heart Arrhythmias & Their Treatment”
    Electrophysiologist Bipin Nagra, M.D.
  • 2:30-2:50 p.m. “KDMC’s Hybrid Operating Room”
    Endovascular/vascular surgeon Omran Abul-Khoudoud, M.D.
  • 3:30-3:50 p.m. “Cardiac Testing”
    Cardiologist Chris Epling, D.O.

In addition to tours of the newly renovated offices, participants will have the opportunity to tour the cardiac catheterization laboratories at King’s Daughters, learn about our new hybrid operating room where cardiothoracic surgeons and cardiologists can work together as a team and learn more about the Kentucky Heart Foundation.

The open house also will include giveaway items, refreshments and a chance to win a Kentucky State Park getaway – it’s all about Heart R&R, after all!

• Comprehensive Cardiac Workup: Designed to detect common diseases of the heart and vascular system. Includes individual consultation with physicians and nurses. Appointments are required and may be made by calling 1.888.377.KDMC (5362).
