LUH opens cardiology office at hospital

LONGMONT – Longmont United Hospital opened the new Milestone Cardiology Associates in an office at the west end of the hospital at 2030 Mountain View Ave. in Longmont.

Cardiologist Murry Drescher is heading the cardiology practice, which is part of Milestone Medical Group.

The hospital also has two catheterization laboratories and a three-dimensional cardio echo machine to serve its heart patients, Mitchell Carson, president and chief executive of Longmont United Hospital, said in a press statement.

“Adding another experienced cardiologist will make our award-winning cardiology services more accessible,” Carson said.
