DECEMBER 27, 2004 - Posted at 7:14 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas Children's Hospital officials say that patients shouldn't experience an interruption in care in the wake of the death of the hospital's chief pediatric heart surgeon.

Nationally-renowned surgeon Dr. Jonathon Drummond Webb was found dead of an apparent suicide early yesterday morning.  Hospital President Dr. Jonathon Bates said that two of the surgeon's partners, Dr. Steve Van Devanter and Dr. Michael Immamura, would be able to take over patient care.

Bates called Drummon-Webb a tireless surgeon who would stop at nothing to help his patients.  He said the doctor would be remembered for his dedication and extraordinary skills.
