Expanding Cardiology Services in Athol

May 13, 2010

Heywood Hospital is bringing additional cardiology services to the Athol region, according to an announcement from Heywood President and CEO Daniel Moen.

Cardiologists from Heywood Cardiology, a Heywood Medical Group (HMG) Practice, are now seeing patients at an office located at Athol Memorial Hospital several days a month. Dr. Rob Terlato and Dr. Michael Stauder began seeing patients at the Athol office on April 27, and plan to provide office hours one day per week initially, according to John DeMalia, Executive Director of the Heywood Medical Group. “Later this summer we are adding two additional cardiologists to our group, and plan to expand office hours at that time,” he said.

According to Moen, Heywood is investing in a major expansion of cardiology services. "We are fortunate to have some outstanding cardiologists at Heywood. It makes sense for us to expand their services into the Athol region for the convenience and comfort of residents in that area," he said.

Dr. Robert Terlato is a graduate of New York Medical College and completed his Internal Medicine residency and cardiology fellowship at UMass Memorial Health Care. Dr. Terlato practices general cardiology and is board certified in internal medicine and cardiology.

Dr. Michael Stauder is a graduate of Loyola University Chicago-Stritch School of Medicine. He completed his Internal Medicine residency at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and his cardiovascular fellowship at UMass Memorial Health Care. Dr. Stauder practices general cardiology, with an expertise in cardiac imaging. He is board certified in internal medicine, cardiology, nuclear cardiology and comprehensive adult echocardiography.

Drs. Terlato and Stauder provide all aspects of cardiac care including diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, valvular disorders, rhythm disorders, hypertension and cholesterol disorders. They also provide advanced diagnostic procedures such as nuclear and echocardiographic imaging, cardiac/coronary CT angiography, transesophageal echocardiography and cardiac catheterizations.
