Hamill announced Wednesday night at a public forum. The hospital expects to receive state certification Thursday to begin performing angioplasty, or surgery on clogged blood vessels, in nonemergency situations, Hamill said. The hospital has been performing angioplasty on patients suffering from heart attacks for one year as of this week, Hamill said.

The meeting had been set for Tuesday, but council members decided against the meeting, Breichner said. The council has several city matters to discuss and it is still uncertain whether Mayor Robert E. Bruchey II will be well enough to attend Tuesday's council work session.
