Arun K. Singh, M.D., a renowned cardiac surgeon who has performed more than 15,000 open heart surgeries on adults and children, will sign his new book “Your Heart, My Hands” on Thursday, May 16 at South County Hospital. The signing will take place in the hospital’s main lobby from 5-7 p.m.
Proceeds from book sales will benefit cardiac rehabilitation programs at South County Health.
One of the most prolific cardiac surgeons in American history, Dr. Singh helped to build a nationally-recognized cardiac surgery program at Rhode Island Hospital. His memoir is being published this month by the Hachette Book Group.
“It’s a privilege to host Dr. Singh as he shares inspirational stories about his life in and out of medicine,” said Dr. Steven R. Fera of South County Cardiology. “Our practice is one of many that entrust patient lives to Dr. Singh because of his skill, experience, and talents as a surgeon.”
Books can be purchased and signed for $20 at the May 16 event. Anyone who donates $100 or more to the Frances McGillivray Tribute Campaign by May 1 will receive a signed copy of the book and the opportunity to honor a loved one on the Frances McGillivray Tribute wall plaque in the hospital main lobby.
