Bring open-heart surgery to Chesapeake

The heart of the matter.

Heart disease is a leading cause of death in Hampton Roads, and Chesapeake Regional Healthcare is responding to the needs of the Southside. We plan to bring fully comprehensive cardiovascular services to our medical center with the addition of a state-of-the-art cardiovascular operating room. First, we need state approval.


Please write a letter addressed to State Health Commissioner, Dr. Norman Oliver, describing why you support CRH’s open-heart surgery application. Tell him, “We need an open-heart surgery program in Chesapeake.”
