Glen Garson, MD Named Director of Cardiac Catheterization Lab
Jordan Hospital and Tufts Medical Center (Tufts MC) are pleased to announce that Glen D. Garson, MD, FACC, has joined the cardiology staff as medical director of Jordan Hospital’s Cardiac Catheterization Lab.
Dr. Garson’s appointment provides Jordan Hospital with the ability to offer patients diagnostic cardiac catheterization on a full-time basis. Most recently, Dr. Garson served as a cardiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA. He is a clinical instructor at Tufts University School of Medicine and Harvard Medical School.
The diagnostic cardiac catheterization lab and cardiovascular program is part of Jordan Hospital’s clinical affiliation with Tufts MC. The full-service program provides Plymouth-area residents with the most state-of-the-art cardiac services available today—without the need to drive to Boston.
The Cardiac Catheterization Lab at Jordan Hospital allows physicians to determine if there is narrowing or blockage that requires treatment. The program also offers stress tests, echocardiograms, and stroke or other general cardiac care. Jordan Hospital’s cardiac arrhythmia specialists are also on-hand to provide advanced care to address an irregular heartbeat. While most care can be provided at Jordan Hospital, physicians can perform more advanced procedures at Tufts MC facilities, if needed.
“I am delighted to become part of the Jordan Hospital cardiovascular program,” says Glen D. Garson, MD, FACC. “I’m especially proud of my new association with the talented cardiologists and imaging specialists at Jordan Hospital. I’m looking forward to helping the cardiology program provide outstanding diagnostic cardiac catheterization care to those we serve.”
The addition of Dr. Garson to Jordan Hospital’s cardiovascular team allows the hospital to now offer full-service diagnostic cardiac catheterization care. “When an individual is having a cardiac need, having a diagnostic cardiac catheterization lab in the area is of great benefit when time is of the essence,” says James Fanale, MD, senior vice president, System Development, Jordan Hospital.
In additional to Dr. Garson’s clinical experience in cardiology, he has been a researcher on numerous cardiovascular clinical researchtrials and is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology.
Jordan Hospital is a not-for-profit organization serving 12-towns in Plymouth and Barnstable Counties.
