Virginia’s Story: “The doctor that was on call pretty much saved my life.”

Danbury Hospital

Virginia - a resident of Norwalk, CT - came home one day after grocery shopping and felt tired.  After resting for a while, she put her groceries away, made dinner for her husband, and then experienced a heart attack without realizing it.

She called 9-1-1 and the ambulance drove her to Norwalk Hospital for emergency heart attack care.  After getting a stent, which saved her life, Virginia continues to visit Norwalk Hospital for cardiac rehabilitation and to share her story with fellow heart attack survivors.
