Vim & Vigor - Winter 2013 - Gwinnett Medical Center - (Page 2)
Our relationships with local
cardiology practices enhance the
care we can provide the community
winnett Medical Center's commitment
to quality cardiac care remains resolute.
And while this drive and passion for
the service has led to notable successes,
we will continue to expand and advance our cardiac offerings based on community needs.
Since the Strickland Heart Center opened in early 2012, we have been growing our program and will offer electrophysiology studies in spring 2014. Earlier
this year, we also welcomed two cardiology practices, CardioVascular Group and
Gwinnett Heart Specialists, to Gwinnett Medical Group.
Gwinnett Medical Group serves as a continuum of healthcare services, including primary and specialty care, set in easily accessible locations. Gwinnett Medical
Group physicians bring expertise and compassionate care to a range of specialties,
including these two cardiology practices.
CardioVascular Group and Gwinnett Heart Specialists provide services for
both the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease and are committed
to maintaining a high level of care through technology, innovation and excellence. Through relationships such as these, Gwinnett Medical Center continues to
expand its presence in our thriving market to provide patients a range of healthcare
options close to home.
CardioVascular Group is based in Lawrenceville and has locations in Atlanta,
Snellville, Buford, Duluth and Johns Creek. Gwinnett Heart Specialists is also
based in Lawrenceville and has locations in Dacula, Duluth, Loganville, Monroe
and Sugar Hill.
These two groups have long-term relationships with Gwinnett Medical Center.
And, in fact, many of the leading cardiologists within the practices were instrumental in championing and securing open heart services for our community.
We are extremely proud and humbled these practices selected Gwinnett Medical
Group to be their home. And beyond that, we are extremely proud and honored
that the Gwinnett community chooses us to be their healthcare provider.
