Through a unique collaborative agreement with Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), Mid-Columbia Medical Center in recent years has dramatically expanded the availability of cardiology care in the region. The collaboration enabled MCMC in 2009 to recruit and establish the region’s first full-time cardiologist, David Guarraia, M.D. Dr. Guarraia was joined in 2011 by Kevin Wei, M.D. and in 2015 by Bassel Beitinjaneh, M.D.
In addition to their cardiology practices at Water’s Edge, all three MCMC heart specialists also serve on the cardiology faculty at OHSU, providing their patients with an important link to the state’s only academic health center.
MCMC and OHSU continue to work together exploring additional opportunities to offer accessible, high-quality cardiovascular care to the communities we serve.
