We have established a partnership with Cape Fear Cardiology. Cape Fear is the group out of Wilmington who has had a clinic here in town, but we really haven’t had an active partnership with them in the past. We have agreed to a professional services arrangement in which they’ll be providing seven day a week coverage for us. They’ll be doing heart caths at our facility and providing support at the hospital as we look at some of our quality indicators that we want to improve on and reducing readmission. It’s a partnership that I’m proud of and I think is going to be a great service for the community.
