University of Minnesota Physicians and Edina-based Minnesota Heart Clinic (MHC) in October merged their cardiology programs, and with Fairview Health Services, they have established a new integrated cardiology program.
The merger brings together community and academic physicians to create one of the largest cardiology programs in the state. People 18 and older will be able to take advantage of a full continuum of care, from heart disease prevention and treatment to heart transplantation and access to the latest medical research.
Minnesota Heart Clinic will continue to see patients at the clinic’s current locations in Edina, Burnsville, Princeton, and Wyoming, Minnesota. Support and ancillary staff, including those in imaging, billing, and information services, will be employed by Fairview.
The merger will help University of Minnesota Physicians and Fairview’s hospitals and clinics meet growing patient demand for cardiovascular services statewide.
