Elva has lived in Tillamook for 30 years and has become an integral part of the small community.

After a nuclear stress test showed that she needed to seek further help, Elva met with Dr. Chelsky at Northwest Regional Heart and Vascular in Tillamook and later went to the Portland campus for an angiogram. The angiogram determined that she needed bypass surgery. Dr. Molloy, Elva’s heart surgeon, made her feel confident that she would receive the best care and the best possible outcome.

Today, several months after a successful surgery, Elva is back home in Tillamook with more energy for the things she enjoys.

“The doctors and the nurses were outstanding because they were so professional and so caring.”
