Invasive Cardiologist Needed Near Southeast Metro
Heart Center is a hospital-owned practice seeking a Board Certified/Board Eligible Invasive Cardiologist to join our established group in Decatur, AL . Our Decatur office is located on the campus of Decatur Morgan Hospital and currently has four Cardiologists. One of our physicians will be transferring to a Heart Center facility closer to his home, which will provide you with an established patient base upon arrival. Our group needs a new partner with strong Cath skills. We also read all nuclear and Echo studies. Permanent Pacemaker placement would be a plus.
Call is 1:4, however, call back is minimal as the Cath Lab isn’t open 24/7, giving our physicians an excellent work/life balance.
We are the dominant cardiology group in North Alabama, owning more than 90% of the market with an excellent payor mix. Physicians are employed by HH Heart Center, LLC which is a wholly-owned entity of Huntsville Hospital, one of the largest non-profit health care systems in the nation (with 881 beds), serving all of North Alabama and Southern Tennessee.

Decatur General grew into a 273 bed acute care hospital with an additional 64 bed behavioral health facility, with a medical staff of more than 200 physicians and more than 1000 employees. Parkway Medical Center, also an acute care facility, became licensed for 120 beds, with a medical staff of 175 physicians and more than 400 employees. Each hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission and together serve more than 250,000 people in 5 counties. Despite this growth, in early 2012, it became clear that there was a need for one unified, not-for-profit healthcare delivery system in Morgan County. Huntsville Hospital System, purchased Parkway Medical Center, and later entered into a lease arrangement with Decatur General to form Decatur Morgan Hospital. The entity currently has four locations in Morgan County - the Decatur General Campus, Parkway Campus, West Campus and the Danville Road Campus and there is room for continued facility growth. The goal is to provide the best, most effective healthcare that meets the needs of our community while reducing duplication of services. As the organizational structure continues to evolve, one thing is certain; our customers can rely on the same high quality care and services that they have always known.
Even though the delivery of healthcare has and will continue to change, our mission has not. We are committed to caring for our patients. With the help of our physicians, nurses, healthcare professionals, and volunteers, we will continue to deliver the highest quality and most compassionate health services for our community. Caring for the community is a privilege we take seriously.
