The family of an Ohio woman who died of a heart attack after being treated at Wheeling Hospital (WV) in 2009 has been awarded $4.2 million by an Ohio County jury. The lawsuit was filed against Dr. Stephen Heirendt and EMPG of West Virginia, Inc.
The woman went to Wheeling Hospital, complaining of chest pains, where she was treated by Heirendt. The suit claimed that the doctor did not follow appropriate standards of care, ultimately leading to her heart attack 11 days later. The woman was 43-years-old.
