Maui Memorial Medical Center today announced the addition of two new cardiologists to the hospital’s Maui Heart & Vascular program.

Dr. Tracy Dorheim and Dr. Kimble Poon join the staff of the only hospital outside of Oahu to provide a full range of cardiac services, including open-heart surgery and angioplasty.

The MMMC heart program officially launched on August 15, 2011, creating an option for Maui patients to be treated on island, without having to travel to O’ahu for care.
