Baptist Health and Arkansas Cardiology are entering into a new partnership to form the Baptist Health Heart Institute, which will offer the state’s most comprehensive array of cardiovascular services.
This new approach to cardiovascular care combines the resources of leading cardiovascular specialists with the top health-care professionals and latest cutting-edge technology from the state’s leading healthcare provider.
“The state’s first open-heart surgery performed at a private hospital was at Baptist Health in 1966 and the state’s first heart transplantation surgery in 1989. Since 1964, Baptist Health physicians have performed more heart surgeries and cardiac procedures than any other staff in the state,” said Russ Harrington, President and CEO of Baptist Health.
“Our partnership with Arkansas Cardiology begins the next chapter in Baptist Health’s long history of groundbreaking cardiac care and strengthens the level of comprehensive cardiovascular services available in Arkansas,” Harrington said.
