“Taking care of my heart is just the beginning of what this hospital means to me.”

—Kenny Hyden

Since Kenny Hyden was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat (Atrial Fibrillation), he’s trusted Gonzales Healthcare Systems to keep his heart in rhythm. Three times during the past several years, Dr. William Craig, a cardiologist with Gonzales Healthcare Systems, has performed electric cardioversion, an outpatient procedure that sends an electric shock to Kenny’s heart through electrodes.

“The first time I did it, I immediately had more energy and my complexion, which was pale, improved,” Kenny says. “Dr. Craig has led the way in bringing medical specialists to our hospital. Whether it’s your eyes, your brain, your bones or your foot, Gonzales Healthcare Systems now has a specialist to take care of almost every medical issue.”

As a result, Kenny goes to Gonzales Healthcare Systems for all of his medical needs. “I was the hospital’s first or second patient to be tested for sleep apnea,” he says. “I’ve had two colonoscopies there, and a neurologist diagnosed me with Parkinson’s and then helped me get it under control. And I think the world of Dr. David Meredith, who’s been my primary care physician for more than 20 years. If anyone from the hospital called me in the middle of the night and needed my help, I would be on my way in a flash. Everybody there is fantastic. I’d put their care up against anybody.”
