Bertrand Chaffee Hospital Foundation’s Garden Party to Spotlight the Heart Center at BCH

Springville, NY – April 26, 2024 – The Bertrand Chaffee Hospital Foundation is gearing up for its Annual Garden Party, set to take place on Monday, May 13, at the Springville Country Club. This year, the Foundation shines a spotlight on the Heart Center at BCH. This outpatient clinic, nestled within Bertrand Chaffee Hospital, offers consultations and advanced cardiac testing for a range of heart conditions. Collaborating seamlessly with prominent cardiologists from Buffalo, including those at the Gates Vascular Institute (GVI), the Heart Center ensures access cutting-edge care for our community. Among the dedicated team members are Dr. Nadeem Haq and Dr. Thomas Smith, alongside our very own Lauralee Sprague, NP-C, who provides compassionate care right here in our community.

“Continuing with the same cardiology team allowed me to experience exceptional healthcare seamlessly when my condition needed a more intensive treatment. Their expertise ensured consistent, personalized care.” – Claudia Miller
