When Three Become One – CHMG HeartCare
Eagle Cardiology, LeBauer HeartCare and The Southeastern Heart and Vascular Center have joined forces to become Cone Health Medical Group HeartCare, the Piedmont Triad’s largest cardiovascular practice. This newly formed practice with more than 30 providers allows patients in Alamance, Forsyth, Guilford, Randolph and Rockingham counties to receive state-of-the-art, world class cardiovascular care with multiple convenient locations.
“A few years ago executive leaders, surgeons, cardiologists and administrators came together to decide what the bold new future of cardiology and cardiovascular services would look like at Cone Health,” says Jake Hochrein, MD, division chief, CHMG HeartCare. “And we agreed that we needed to become one integrated practice to offer cutting-edge therapies for our communities; something that we couldn’t accomplish operating as competitors.”
All three cardiovascular practices have established and respected reputations in the Piedmont Triad and now offer patients even more in-depth transformative and innovative care by working seamlessly together.
Now, with eight different locations, CHMG HeartCare, is the most extensive provider of cardiovascular care in the Piedmont Triad, serving more than 1,000 patients each day. Additionally, CHMG HeartCare offers both inpatient and outpatient care across multiple facilities. Comprehensive inpatient care is offered at Alamance Regional Medical Center, Annie Penn Hospital, Wesley Long Hospital, The Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital and Women’s Hospital. Our patients are now able to receive superior coordinated care across diagnostic areas and physician practices, and therapeutic treatment close to home with their current doctors or other doctors in the Cone Health network.
“The formation of CHMG HeartCare and the resulting physician collaboration is bringing advanced cardiovascular diagnosis and treatment options to patients in our communities,” says Rich Lundy, vice president, Heart and Vascular Center and Imaging Services. “Cone Health Heart and Vascular Center is nationally recognized for high-quality and excellent outcomes. With the formation of CHMG HeartCare and the added benefits it brings, Cone Health truly is the destination for all things cardiovascular.”
