Join Rutland Regional Medical Center physicians, staff, local business and community members to learn more about the vital programs and services that improve the health and wellness of our region.

On Wednesday, February 6 from 5:30-7 p.m. at Roots the Restaurant, 55 Washington Street in Rutland, physicians and staff from the Rutland Heart Center will be featured. Enjoy great food, cash bar and exciting raffles.

Learn more about the “Imagine…a Healthy Heart” campaign to purchase a new nuclear medicine camera for the Rutland Heart Center. This new camera will enhance the patient experience and provide our cardiologists with efficient, more precise images for better outcomes.

“At Rutland Heart Center, we perform a nuclear medicine study on approximately 750 patients each year. This is a noninvasive, safe and painless imaging test used to evaluate patients. Having the new nuclear medicine camera means our cardiologists will be using the best technology to diagnose, our patients will have a better experience, and our health-care system will be more efficient.” said Dr. Michael Robertello.

If you stay for dinner after the mixer, Roots the Restaurant will donate 15 percent of all proceeds to the “Imagine…a Healthy Heart” campaign. Make your reservation online at
