First Cardiac Intervention in Bartow County Performed by Harbin Clinic Physician

The first cardiac intervention in Bartow County was performed this past Wednesday (January 26, 2011) at Cartersville Medical Center by Harbin Clinic Cardiologist Maxwell Prempeh, MD. A stent was placed in a blood vessel restoring normal blood flow to the heart and possibly preventing a future heart attack.

The procedure was performed in the hospital’s new cardiac catheterization laboratory, which operates in partnership with Harbin Clinic. Harbin Clinic cardiologists now provide cardiac catheterization interventions at Redmond Medical Center, Floyd Hospital, and Cartersville Medical Center. General cardiology services including treatment and testing are provided by Harbin cardiologists at Gordon Hospital in Calhoun. Cardiac surgery is performed at Redmond Medical Center.

Harbin Clinic is Georgia’s largest physician-owned multi-specialty group with approximately 200 providers in 20 locations throughout North West Georgia.
