The Beat Goes on February 25 to Support Jennie Edmundson Cardiovascular Program

Mark your calendar to support the Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital Foundation ( Cardiovascular Patient Care Fund by participating in the virtual Dance to the Beat fundraiser on Thursday, February 25. The purpose of Dance to the Beat is twofold: The first goal is to raise funds to help cardiovascular patients cover some of the uninsured costs of their care, such as transportation and medication. The second is to raise awareness of the importance of exercise, nutrition, and other factors that improve cardiac health.

“Without the support of our sponsors, we couldn’t accomplish either goal,” said Jennie Edmundson Foundation Vice President and Chief Philanthropy Officer Tara Slevin.

The care team at Methodist Jennie Edmundson’s Cardiovascular Center is part of an advanced cardiology services network that stretches throughout southwest Iowa and the metro Omaha area to deliver timely, individualized procedures, treatments and therapies, along with education aimed at preventing heart disease. The team includes three cardiologists: Robert Armbruster, M.D., Joseph Ayoub, M.D., and Thomas Brandt, M.D. Together with cardiac-care nurses and other medical professionals, the cardiologists actively partner with the caregivers at other hospitals throughout the region and with the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) first responders who answer the 911 calls every day.

The Jennie Edmundson Hospital Foundation is indebted to the longtime support they have received from large and small communities across southwest Iowa and the Omaha metro area.
