New name, same great care — Pruellage Center delivers
St. Anthony’s Heart and Surgical Pavilion has been renamed in honor of the late John K. “Jack” Pruellage, a dedicated member of the medical center’s board of directors and former chairman of the Lewis, Rice & Fingersh law firm.
The state-of-the-art facility is home to St. Anthony’s Heart Specialty Center and boasts four cardiac catheterization labs, three Interventional Radiology suites, two electrophysiology labs, one endovascular operating room and the Heart Evaluation and Rapid Treatment (H.E.A.R.T.) Unit.
At age 38, Scott Zarinelli collapsed suddenly while playing soccer. He was rushed to St. Anthony’s Emergency Department, where physicians discovered he was having a heart attack. Within minutes, he was in the Cardiac Catheterization Lab, where doctors cleared his blocked artery.
That lifesaving care enabled Scott to return to his home in south St. Louis County, where he is enjoying life with his wife and three children.
