Welcome to MCMC, Cardiologist David Johnson, MD, FACC
Heart Month is celebrated in the United States every February to help educate
Americans on facts about heart disease and the importance of a heart-healthy
lifestyle. This is MCMC’s first year celebrating Heart Month since
announcing our cardiology partnership with Adventist Health Portland’s
Northwest Regional Heart & Vascular Center.
MCMC has always been committed to ensuring that local residents have access
to quality health care close to home. And thanks to our partnership with
Adventist Health Portland, patients don’t have to travel outside
of the local area to get outstanding cardiac care.
Adventist Health Portland’s Northwest Regional Heart and Vascular
Center is a nationally recognized, regional leader in heart care, providing
advanced techniques in the fields of cardiology, interventional cardiology,
electrophysiology, cardiovascular surgery, and vascular care.
Since Sept. 1, Northwest Regional Heart and Vascular (NWRHV) cardiologists
have been serving MCMC patients in The Dalles and Hood River, providing
personalized care to prevent, diagnose, treat and manage heart conditions
to help patients live longer, healthier lives.
Today, I am pleased to announce that board-certified cardiologist David
Johnson, MD, FACC, will be joining the NWRHV team in The Dalles. Dr. Johnson
received his medical degree from The Ohio State University College of
Medicine and has been in practice for more than 20 years. He has relocated
to the Gorge. Please join me in welcoming Dr. Johnson to MCMC.
I am truly thrilled that we have been able to bring world-class heart care
to residents of the Columbia River Gorge. If you have not yet had an opportunity
to learn about NWRHV, I encourage you to visit their website at
Learn about heart disease and how to keep your heart healthy,
Happy Heart Month.
