Northwest Washington | Where do doctors go when they need heart surgery
From September 25, 2012. Five years ago, when Earl Beegle suspected he was having a heart attack, he insisted that the EMTs take him to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett. His suspicions were correct, and he says Providence saved his life. This past year, when Earl needed heart surgery to repair an atrial valve, he again specified Providence. Why is Earl so picky about where he receives his care? Because after working as a physician for 32 years, he says you learn what's truly important in a hospital — and that's the knowledge and experience of the entire medical team.
