ABOUT OUR AFFILIATION
When a community hospital and local cardiologists can collaborate with a major academic medical center to extend heart care options for patients, everybody benefits. A renewed affiliation between Hanover Hospital Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center
means residents of Hanover and the surrounding region can now be seen for both common and complex heart conditions without going far from home.
Experts from Penn State Hershey Heart and Vascular Institute
(PSHVI) are seeing patients at Hanover Hospital and at Penn State Hershey Heart and Vascular Institute—Hanover (Hillside Medical Center, 250 Fame Avenue, Hanover, Suite 101) on a regular basis for advanced diagnostics, consultations, and follow-up care for rhythm disorders, heart failure, and other cardiovascular conditions. Primary care physicians can conveniently refer their patients to Hanover, knowing that further interventions can be quickly arranged at the Medical Center in Hershey (or elsewhere) if necessary.
Diagnostic cardiac catheterization
Heart failure consultation/follow-up

This affiliation also offers increased access to clinical studies that are providing new knowledge that may, one day, lead to better treatments and even a cure for heart disease.
