Concerns about clinical and operational impact are paramount to hospital and service line leaders everywhere, as a “new normal” in healthcare is established, though it’s changing day to day.

              COVID-19 News

              Corazon Medical Expert, Dr. Bob Biederman, Medical Director, CV Magnetic Resonance Imaging Center at Allegheny General Hospital, appeared on the local Pittsburgh news to discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the heart and lungs. Corazon has been working diligently with our clients on ways to adjust specialty CV and neuro programs now, and with strategies for the near-future when these specialty services will need to rebound and accept the deferred elective cases, in addition to patients who delayed treatment due to concerns over the pandemic.
