Wellstar Community Report – July 2018 - June 2020

MATTHEWSCARE Deidra and Bow Matthews’ first experience with Wellstar Cobb Hospital was the birth of their children Chase and Canon. Over the years, that connection deepened as the family faced, and overcame, health challenges including Deidra’s bariatric revision surgery and Bow’s cardiomyopathy, a type of heart failure. Through it all, their physicians persisted in finding personalized solutions. When Bow’s condition proved resistant to treatment, his cardiologist, Ravi Edupuganti, M.D., urged him to get serious about making changes in diet and exercise. Bow felt empowered tomake a difference in his life, which led to action. The result was 84 pounds lost, health regained and confidence restored. From childbirth to broken bones and mended hearts, the Matthews family has enjoyed a close personal relationship with their Wellstar physicians. Their experience is proof that when patients and care partners work together, families are healthier and happier, too!

“Wellstar is the health system that gave me a second chance at life. A second chance to hold my wife and children. A second chance to fight.” – Bow Matthews
