In just a few weeks, people in Hastings won't have to travel far to get heart healthcare.
Starting March First, Mary Lanning Hospital and Bryan Heart will be bringing full cardiology services to Hastings.
Officials say this is an excellent opportunity to keep these services as local as possible so area patients can get help before it becomes a problem.
"I'm excited from that standpoint to be able to offer this service to patients," said Mary Lanning Hospital's Shawn Riggs. "To be able to catch them before they get to the stage where they live, going to have to have open heart surgery, stroke or some other complicating issue, so I'm excited because I think we'll be able to catch patients on the front end."
The new office is located in the medical services building on the second floor.
