I know his work. I'd go to kdmc for anything heart related.

KDMC has closed down several areas of their hospital. I have heard that Cardiac Rehab is one of them. Will this affect the care and reputation of their Heart Institute? Will it still be the "best heart hospital" in our area?

KDMC is under investigation for conducting needless cardiac procedures for many years.

Paulis has quit ( retired) and they have in fact closed some of their departments. Some staff have been forced to take time off and lay offs will begin this month.

Why would anyone go there for any type of procedure???

I'm not sure. I can only confidently say that I wouldn't feel comfortable at smmc for a loved one from personal experience. Good luck

I wouldn't feel comfortable at kdmc. SMMC gets KDMC's patients all the time. What kind of hospital are they that transfers their patients out to another?
And Dr Joseph is a great doctor.

Google his name on healthgrades.com and you will see where he had a malpractice lawsuit settlement in 2011 for $100,000.

Bonnie, my Mother had a pacemaker implant from Dr.Joesph. I highly recommend Dr. Joesph, he is a very bright and caring doctor. Dr. Joesph beside manners are second to none! A lot of replies on here are trying to persuade you, to either go to Kings Daughters, or SMMC.. St.Marys is still to this day, the number #1 heart institute in the tri-state area..
