Mid-Workout, Hadassah Doctor Sprints to Save a Life

Thursday, Jun 19 2014

One recent Friday afternoon, Dr. Haim Danenberg, Director of Interventional Cardiology at the Hadassah Medical Organization, was out for a run, cell phone strapped to his forearm, as is his tradition. When he received the call that he was needed for emergency heart surgery, he immediately came to Hadassah’s Catheterization Laboratory to greet Michael Kosofsky, who just suffered a heart attack.

Mr. Kosofsky, a 54-year-old insurance broker and father of four, had been playing basketball with his friends when he felt a sudden heavy pressure on his chest and collapsed on the court. The ambulance crew brought Mr. Kosofsky straight to Hadassah’s Catheterization Lab, where Dr. Danenberg, also a father of four, was waiting for him.

Said Kosofsky, originally from Maplewood, New Jersey: "I need to thank God and his Hadassah agents on this earth."
