Chris felt pressure in his chest and knew something was terribly wrong. Shortly after his arrival to our Nan and Howard Schow Emergency & Trauma Center, he lost consciousness: “I remember lying down for an x-ray…and awoke again 36 hours later,” he says. At age 32, Chris had experienced a major heart attack.

“I could count on one hand the true heroes I’ve met in life. But that all changed the day the incredible staff at Huntington Hospital saved Christopher’s life,” says Ken Davis, Chris’ father. “Huntington Hospital will always hold a special place in our hearts — they helped bring our son into the world, and 32 years later, they kept him in it.”

Chris is thriving today, thanks to the prompt, lifesaving care he received here. “Huntington Hospital saved my life and I’m still here because of that,” Chris says.
