Over the next few months, we will be enhancing our cardiac services to ensure that we continue to offer the best cardiology care to the local community.  We are currently focused on talent recruitment and exploring collaborations with other leading organizations in the Northwest.

This activity coincides with the transitions of several of our cardiology providers. Three cardiologists will be leaving Summit Medical Group Oregon – BMC over the next few months.

  • Rick Koch resigned, effective April 2nd.
  • Courtney Virgilio resigned and will be leaving April 30th.
  • Nahel Farraj has announced plans to pursue a once-in-a-lifetime fellowship opportunity, and will remain with us through mid-summer.

We wish all three cardiologists the best in their future endeavors and truly appreciate their service at Summit Medical Group Oregon – BMC.

You and your family’s medical care remains our top priority.  Over the next few months, Summit Medical Group Oregon – BMC will continue to offer the same diagnostic cardiology testing at the same high level of care you have come to know and trust.

BMC was the first to offer cardiology services to Central Oregon. As Summit Medical Group Oregon – BMC, we are committed to continuing a legacy of exceptional care, and poised to shape an exciting future direction to deliver comprehensive cardiology services for the community.

Thank you for trusting us with your medical care and we look forward to providing you with details about our new cardiology services in the near future.

Your medical records will remain at Summit Medical Group Oregon – BMC and copies of these records are available to you upon your request. If you are under active care, we can assist you in connecting with a new provider to ensure the continuity of your care.  Please contact our Cardiology Department at 541-382-2811.

    Dr. Virgilio provided excellent care for me and her care and referrals achieved results that were life changing. Your failure to keep her makes me question remaining with your medical group. I am a former medical malpractice lawyer who represented hospitals and doctors and I recognize excellent care when I see it. If she remains in this area I will follow her and not one of your cardiologists.

    Doctors Koch and Farraj saved my life (Thank you, guys!) I wish them the best of luck, and will follow them if they stay in the area.
    Let’s see now:
    1) My “Family Doctor” has left,
    2) My dermatologist is gone, and now
    3) My cardiologist has found it necessary to depart.
    “You and your family’s medical care remains our top priority.” Really? It appear$ $omething el$e might be your top priority. Thank$ for the thought.
