The Nation

March 12, 1985

Murray P. Haydon was moved from a coronary care unit at Humana Hospital Audubon to a room next to William J. Schroeder's, and the world's only surviving artificial heart recipients shook hands and spoke to each other for the first time. "We'll have to get together, now that we're neighbors," Haydon was reported as saying in Louisville, Ky. Schroeder, who received his Jarvik-7 pump Nov. 25, was in satisfactory condition. Haydon, who received his plastic and metal heart Feb. 17, remained in serious condition.
