CCN brings 20 cardiologists to HealthCare Partners’ integrated system
LAS VEGAS – (April 17, 2012) HealthCare Partners Nevada, a leading physician-led medical group and specialist network, announced today the merger with Cardiovascular Consultants of Nevada (CCN). CCN is a 20-physician group of highly-skilled, experienced cardiologists specializing in all aspects of comprehensive and interventional heart care.
Effective April 17, all CCN cardiologists will operate in conjunction with HealthCare Partners, providing an extensive network of cardiology services to Southern Nevada. The new name of the combined clinics is Cardiovascular Consultants of Nevada HealthCare Partners Cardiology.
CCN has served Southern Nevada for 35 years, managing cardiovascular health in six clinics throughout Las Vegas, Henderson and Pahrump.
“We are delighted to join forces with a like-minded organization devoted to quality, affordable care in Southern Nevada,” said Robert Margolis, M.D. and Chief Executive Officer of HealthCare Partners LLC, the parent company of HealthCare Partners Nevada which is headquartered in Torrance, Calif. “Our partnership with Cardiovascular Consultants of Nevada is in line with the HealthCare Partners vision of providing the highest level of coordinated medical care.”
Amir Bacchus, M.D., co-founder and Chief Medical Officer of HealthCare Partners Nevada, says “Cardiology patients across Las Vegas, Henderson and Pahrump will now have improved access to affordable, quality care. We value the way that Cardiovascular Consultants of Nevada physicians share the HealthCare Partners commitment to delivering patient satisfaction and exceptional care.”
“I am very excited to work with such a well-known group of cardiologists,” said Dr. Stephen J. Portz, MD, F.A.C.C., chief of cardiology for HealthCare Partners Medical Group. “This new collaboration will provide Southern Nevadans unprecedented access to quality care and a number of new clinic options throughout the valley.”
Cardiologists will see patients at four main campuses strategically located around the valley, providing better access for cardiology patients. These campuses include the full-scale medical offices at the Summerlin Hospital Campus, Southern Hills, Sunrise Doctor’s Pavilion and at the Green Valley office in Henderson. Patients will also be seen on a limited schedule at Centennial Hills Hospital Medical Center in Las Vegas and at the HealthCare Partners’ cardiology clinic in Pahrump.
