Our RiverBend Partners

Bay Area Hospital collaborates for cardiology services with the Oregon Health & Vascular Institute, part of Springfield’s Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend. By incorporating the services of OHVI’s interdisciplinary team, BAH gives patients access to seamless, comprehensive care, plus the expertise of one of Oregon’s largest cardiology programs.

OHVI cardiologists travel to Coos Bay to see patients and provide backup for Dr. Rick Latham in the Prefontaine Cardiovascular Center. In addition, the affiliation streamlines patient access to RiverBend’s services and resources.

OHVI is one of the Pacific Northwest’s the premier centers for providing state-of-the-art cardiovascular services. Physicians from four disciplines — cardiology, interventional radiology, vascular surgery and cardiovascular surgery — work together to determine each patient’s best treatment options.
