Heart Associates of Oregon
The Heart Associates cardiologists Jay Chappell, M.D., Samuel Lau, M.D. and Soo Park, M.D., perform a variety of diagnostic and interventional heart procedures in the Heart Center, including pacemaker implants, stent placements, tranesophageal echocardiography, and percutaneous PFO and ASD closures.

Our surgeons and cardiologists work as a team alongside our cardiac nurses and technologists to help ensure patients and their families are comfortable, safe and informed throughout their procedures and surgeries. Whether patients are on the heart unit for surgery or other cardiac treatments, they stay in the same unit from admission through discharge.
To show our commitment to cardiovascular care, McKenzie-Willamette Medical Center is a participant with the American College of Cardiology. We maintain compliance with national heart disease treatment guidelines and standards of care, as part of our continuous quality improvement program. Read more in our Heart Center Brochure.
"We are always pleased to offer new technology at the McKenzie-Willamette Heart Center." Dr. Jay Chappell.
Under the medical leadership of cardiologist Jay Chappell, M.D., the Heart Center has pioneered many advanced technologies.
- In 2008 Dr. Samuel Lau performed the first percutaneous closure of a patent foramen ovale (PFO) to be done in Springfield.
- In Lane County, the COGNISTM cardiac resynchronization defibrillator (CRT-D) was first implanted at McKenzie-Willamette.
- In the fall of 2009, Dr. Jay Chappell was the first cardiologist in the area to implant a pacemaker equipped with wireless technology. The device offers automatic test results and complete diagnostics that can be monitored remotely for regularly scheduled checks, and alerts the physician of any patient or device abnormalities.
