An Open-Heart Program for Chesapeake

Chesapeake Regional Healthcare is on a mission to bring advanced interventional cardiology and open heart surgery to our community in 2019. We recently submitted an application to the state that would allow us to build an operating room for cardiac surgery.

Heart disease is the #1 cause of death in our area, and our residents deserve timely access to life-saving services close to home; and this includes our friends in northeast North Carolina. Let’s not wait any longer. Help us show the Virginia Department of Health how much this community wants an open heart surgery program!

Here’s how you can help

We are hoping to send 20,000 letters to the Virginia Department of Health before November 10. Write a letter addressed to Mr. Peter Boswell about why you support CRH’s application and/or about any experience you may have had at CRH and with heart disease.

Send the letter to

Virginia Department of Health

Attn: Mr. Peter Boswell
9960 Mayland Dr., Ste. 401

Need information for your letter? Submit your information and you'll get a helpful email with some tips.

Help us spread the word by sharing it with your family, friends and organizations and by signing our online petition
