Cardiac care finds a new home in ChathamCardiac care finds a new home in Chatham

The Oppenheim Medical Building is home to a new CCHC Cardiovascular Care Center

A new Chatham location improves access to cardiovascular care for the outer- and lower-Cape community. Cape Cod Healthcare Cardiovascular Center opened in Chatham at the Oppenheim Medical Building on June 23, 2021. The new practice is led by established cardiologist Elissa Thompson, MD, who will provide office cardiology services at the Main Street location.

Dr. Thompson has seen patients on the lower Cape since 2016 at the CCHC Cardiovascular Center in Harwich at the Fontaine Outpatient Center and will continue to practice at the CCHC Cardiovascular Center in Hyannis in addition to the new Chatham location.

Oppenheim Medical Building is located at 1629 Main Street, Chatham, and is a facility that was funded with support from a generous gift provided by David and Gail Oppenheim.  In addition to the new cardiology services, outpatient rehabilitation services and lab services are also provided at the Oppenheim Medical Building.

“I am excited to be a part of this initiative that will benefit a community where I live and work, and support the growing need for exceptional healthcare,” said Dr. Thompson. “It is an honor to have helped build a superior program that is now ready to expand cardiac services to the most at-risk and underserved.”

Future plans may include providing some cardiac services, like Echocardiograms and Stress Tests, according to Thompson.

“The addition of cardiology services at the Oppenheim Medical Building in Chatham represents our commitment to increased access to the highest quality care for our community,” said Michael Lauf, president and CEO, Cape Cod Healthcare. “We extend our sincere gratitude to the Oppenheim family and others who continue to support our mission to provide the best possible care for our patients on Cape Cod.”
