Mike Wilt, PA-C, joined Cyril Gunawardane, MD, FACC, at Cole Memorial’s cardiology office located at 1001 East Second Street in Coudersport. In addition, Steven Herrmann, MD, PhD, a board certified cardiology specialist, will practice here part-time.

As a result, Cole Memorial plans to add office hours to increase access to cardiology care in the region. Services are also available at the Port Allegany Community Health Center at 45 Pine Street.

“We are thrilled that Mike and Dr. Herrmann joined us,” says Cole’s Regional Health Center Director Lori Gross. “Our collaboration with the nationally recognized UPMC Hamot Heart and Vascular Institute resulted in bringing more cardiology providers for the patients in our area.”

He received his board certification as a Physician Assistant in 2006 and now brings 10 years of experience in internal and emergency medicine. In 2015, he was awarded his Cardiovascular Board Certification through the American Board of Cardiovascular Medicine.
