Storm delays heart team

Storms over the central Pacific have forced a delay in our PIMA heart team trip to Christmas Island, headed by cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. David Moore of Baylor Heart Hospital in Plano, Texas.

“Dr. Moore and his team, including echo technician James Rampoldi, were turned back at the airport gate in Honolulu November 24 when the once-a-week Fiji Airways flight to Christmas Island was canceled due to dangerous storm conditions over the central Pacific Island,’ said PIMA president Carlton Smith.

He said the trip has now been rescheduled for March 8-15.
