Guests will be whisked away to far-off lands when they attend SCH’s upcoming Tropical Paradise, Annual Gala on October 26, 2019. Chaired by Drs. Frederman Concepcion and Rosibell Arcia-Diaz, this year’s event will be held at the Hilton Chicago. The gala will feature elegant dining, themed entertainment, dancing to tropical rhythms, and a large silent auction with one-of a kind items benefitting SCH Cardiology.
Our Cardiovascular Services team at Swedish Covenant is committed to providing each patient with comprehensive care. By coupling the most advanced technology with open communication between primary care physicians and a team of heart specialists to identify and treat a range of heart and vascular conditions, SCH physicians and medical staff work together to provide a continuum of care that ensures the best possible outcomes for our patients.
It’s important to have a team of doctors who really care about you, just ask Carlos Mendez. Last year, Carlos experienced a slight pain in his chest while exercising. He went to see his SCH primary care physician who suggested he see a cardiologist. A stress test was performed, followed by an angiogram, and then quadruple bypass surgery. After surgery, he completed his recovery in the cardiac rehabilitation program at SCH’s Galter LifeCenter. Carlos is now feeling great, back to work, doing the things he loves and spending time with his family. According to Carlos, “There was an amazing team approach; my primary doctor was in constant contact with the cardiologist and surgeon and since Galter is part of SCH, all of my doctors knew exactly how my cardiac rehabilitation was progressing and made suggestions to the Rehab staff.”
In order to continue providing the highest level of cardiovascular care, all proceeds from Swedish Covenant Health’s upcoming Annual Gala, Tropical Paradise, will benefit the Cardiology Department and its services. Thanks to our generous Elite sponsors of this year’s Gala; Title Sponsor, SCH Medical Staff, Platinum Sponsor, Medical Express Ambulance Service, and Diamond Sponsors, Continental Electrical Construction Company, Covenant Ministries of Benevolence, Covenant Trust Company, North Park University, and PNC.
