Chicago-based Rush opens clinic for chronic chest pain sufferers
Chicago Tribune, June 10, 2009
Chicago-based Rush University Medical Center's new Outpatient Chest Pain Center is being touted a way to leapfrog healthcare system bureaucracy. Gary Schaer, MD, director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at Rush, said he often hears of patients not getting the comprehensive follow-up care they need to improve a heart condition. That is one reason Schaer and his colleagues decided to open the clinic, now a one-stop shop where chest pain sufferers can be tested and evaluated in one day by Rush's cardiac experts.
