"I knew I was in trouble that morning. When I arrived at Baystate Franklin, they confirmed it,” says David Ahearn from Greenfield. “Pretty soon I was in an ambulance and on my way to Baystate Medical Center, where the head of Cardiac Catheterization was waiting for me at the door.
Ahearn’s share his story, including why he feels “very lucky.”
"After a stent was inserted, it wasn't long before I was back home, where I've been receiving regular care at Baystate Heart & Vascular in Greenfield ever since,” he says.
"I think all of us in this region should know that we have this level of heart experts right here in Greenfield—and that they are connected to an advanced, comprehensive heart program in Springfield. That connection saved my life."
