Doctors continue treating former Columbia Mayor at Providence Hospital
April 20, 2015
The family of Bob Coble released the following statement from Providence Hospital today.
As Dad’s doctors and nurses provide post-operative treatments, his vital signs are improving. We are particularly encouraged by his progress over the past 24-48 hours. But, Dad suffered a major heart attack and we know that his road to recovery will be a long one. Our family asks everyone to keep the well wishes and prayers coming as medical professionals continue to provide around-the-clock care for “Mayor Bob.”
Statehouse personnel and health care professionals at the complex took emergency action after Bob Coble became ill at the Capitol on the afternoon of Wednesday, April 15th. After doctors found blockage and determined that Coble had a heart attack, they performed quadruple coronary bypass surgery.
Bob Coble served as Mayor of the City of Columbia for 20 years. Thanks to his leadership and public service, he has received The Order of the Palmetto, Woodrow Wilson Award for Leadership in Historic Preservation and "Ambassador of the Year" from the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce.
