Alberto Bello and his wife, Barbara, were running errands when he suddenly felt excruciating pain in his shoulders and broke out in a severe sweat. Before they made it out of the store, Alberto had to sit down due to chest pains and numbness in his left arm.
Alberto was rushed to the hospital. It turns out, he was experiencing a heart attack. Upon arriving at the hospital, the whole STEMI (ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction) team and Dr. Paul Gilmore were ready for him. “From the second I arrived, everyone was compassionate, caring and truly eased my way into accepting what was next for me,” said Alberto.
"Today, thanks in large part to my Providence care team, I'm back to doing what I love – running 5K’s, hiking, gardening, working on projects at home and traveling with my wife."
