RVMC cardiologist honored

Dr. Brian Gross, a cardiologist and leader in developing heart care in the Rogue Valley, will be honored by Asante Health System at the annual Carpenter Awards on Saturday, May 5, at Rogue Valley Medical Center.

The Carpenter Award each year recognizes community leaders who have had a positive and significant influence in improving medical care in Jackson County.

Hospital officials commended him for making Rogue Valley Medical Center a leader in heart care and saving thousands of lives in Southern Oregon and Northern California.

Gross is credited with establishing a collaborative system that enlisted multiple hospitals and emergency response teams and has resulted in a reduced death rate for heart attack. In the nine-county South Oregon region, the rate is 3.4 percent compared with 8 to 12 percent nationally.
