Takes a lot of heart

Houston Chronicle - - FROM THE COVER -

Re­gard­ing “Things … I just couldn’t imag­ine’” (Page A1, May 27), hats off to the Hous­ton Chron­i­cle for its series on Dr. O.H. “Bud” Fra­zier, Bay­lor St. Luke’s Med­i­cal Cen­ter and the Texas Heart In­sti­tute. In­ves­tiga­tive jour­nal­ism in­volves high ex­penses, is time in­ten­sive with un­cer­tain re­sults and risks defama­tion lit­i­ga­tion.

Your un­cov­er­ing of the hid­den truths about the sto­ried Texas Heart In­sti­tute and Bay­lor St. Luke’s Med­i­cal Cen­ter’s out­comes for heart trans­plants has made your read­ers more knowl­edge­able, en­abled pa­tients to make more in­formed treat­ment de­ci­sions and pos­si­bly spared some fam­i­lies and pa­tients from un­nec­es­sary heartache and grief.

Ge­orge B. Green, Hous­ton
