Hartford, CT-based St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center officials said they hope they will be able to resume all heart surgeries soon but are waiting for a "final decision" from state regulators. The hospital suspended all non-emergency cardiac surgeries July 2 at the recommendation of the Connecticut Department of Public Health. In a statement, hospital officials said they have given the health department "all the documentation requested and necessary to verify the quality of our cardiac surgery programs."
