FIRST OUT-PATIENT HEART HOSPITAL, NEW CANCER CENTER CELEBRATIONS AT PRESBYTERIAN

                   FIRST OUT-PATIENT HEART HOSPITAL,
           NEW CANCER CENTER CELEBRATIONS AT PRESBYTERIAN
    PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Presbyterian Medical Center of Philadelphia is reaching new heights for a healthier future.
    On Thursday, Nov. 21, with banners and balloons flying, a magician on stilts, mimes, and herald trumpeters, Presbyterian celebrates two strengths of its Medical Center, the Philadelphia Heart Institute and the Presbyterian Cancer Center.  Together they offer the latest surgical procedures, research, therapies and support to combat heart disease and cancer, the two leading causes of death in this country.
    Bernard L. Segal, M.D., director, hospital officials and trustees will break ground for the Delaware Valley's first out-patient heart hospital, the new Philadelphia Heart Institute, scheduled to open on Valentine's Day, 1993, on the Presbyterian campus in University City.  A leader in education and research in the causes, treatment and prevention of heart disease, the Philadelphia Heart Institute also has a range of patient care services unsurpassed by any other institution in the region.
    Opening the doors for "tomorrow's therapies today," James L. Weese, M.D., F.A.C.S., director, and Donna J. Glover, M.D., co-director, will dedicate the Presbyterian Cancer Center, the newest source of pride at Presbyterian, located at 39th and Filbert streets, Philadelphia.
    "It is our goal to provide aggressive, state-of-the-art technology cancer services," said Weese, a pioneer in treating previously inoperable tumors of the pancreas and liver.  Both Weese, who is chief of surgical oncology, and Glover, chief of oncology and hematology, have a strong commitment to clinical and immunotherapy research, and hope to expand the availability of treatment protocols offered.
    James D. O'Dell, chairman, and I. Donald Snook, president, Presbyterian Medical Center, will participate in the program with Segal, Weese, Glover and hospital officials.
    A reception to please the eye, the palate and the body will be followed by tours of the new facilities.
