The Heart of St. Francis | E3

The staff at St. Francis is devastated to learn of the COVID-related death of their longtime co-worker, Segundo. Dr. Richard Shlofmitz especially takes the loss hard as Segundo was like a fourth son to him. Richard promotes the Shlofmitz Heart Foundation in media interviews. The foundation was established to help Long Island hospitals emerge stronger from the pandemic.  Edmond returns to have another stent put in before his PET scan, and his wife Mary discusses the love she and Edmond share, their shared joys, and sorrows, and what keeps their marriage strong.   Dr. Joseph Levine performs a Watchman procedure, explaining how a small device is inserted into the heart to help prevent blood clots. He has taught approximately 10 other doctors in the area how to perform the same procedure. We meet Karen, the patient in Episode 2 who suffered a heart attack. She returns for a follow-up with Richard, and we learn that before coming to St. Francis, she originally visited another emergency room where she was told to wait in a wheelchair. Rather than wait, her husband rushed her to St. Francis instead. His decision proved to be a lifesaving one.
