Heart Plaza a reality for hospital system

NORMAN — A ribbon was cut Thursday, opening Norman Regional Health System’s new Heart Plaza.

The plaza is a two-story, 40,000-square-foot facility, adjacent to the HealthPlex at Interstate 35 and Tecumseh Road in north Norman, featuring many resources for heart patients in one location.

Robin Wiens Campbell, NRHS chair, said the facility — scheduled to open to patients in mid-April — is an effort to improve patient care.

“We’re excited about having all the doctors in one place, for one thing, and all the providers, the testing will all be in one place, the visits to the doctors, cardiac rehab — it’ll be nice to have that consolidated so people will know this is the place they go to for heart care,” she said.

Located next to the HealthPlex, which houses the Norman Heart Hospital and emergency Chest Pain Center, the Heart Plaza offers outpatient heart and vascular care.

Services at the Heart Plaza will include cardiology and cardiovascular surgery physician offices; outpatient heart-related diagnostic services such as ultrasound, nuclear medicine scans and stress EKGs; anti-coagulation clinic; cardiac rehabilitation work-out area; and, opening in May, the Norman Regional Hyperbaric and Wound Care Center.

The Heart Plaza will house Norman Regional cardiologists Drs. Paul Ayers, Jeffrey Crook, Archana Gautam, Katherine Hays, Muhammad Salim, Michael Sellers and Michael Villano, as well as cardio-vascular surgeon Dr. Kyle Toal.
