TEAMWORK- Richard Howard Jr. M.D., left, cardiac interventionist, stands in the heart lab at Wellspan Gettysburg Hospital on Wednesday along with Alison Arrowood, nursing operations director; Bethany Lavin, clinical coordinator; and Ryan White, manager of invasive cardiology.

“Time is muscle” is the motto of Richard Howard Jr., MD, director of the new Interventional Cardiology Program at Wellspan Gettysburg Hospital’s Heart Center.

The new cardiac catheterization laboratory, open since Sept. 4, has already served many patients, and perhaps saving the lives of some.
