A group of ten cardiologists practicing under the name Tennova Heart is joining Tennova Healthcare – Cleveland.  Tennova Heart was established last year to coordinate cardiology care and related services across a network of five east Tennessee hospitals in Knoxville, Jefferson City, LaFollette and Newport. Joining with Tennova Healthcare – Cleveland expands the network to six cooperating hospitals.

 

Interventional cardiologist Dr. Robert Martyn will begin seeing patients in Cleveland on July 15 in the Tennova Heart clinic at 2253 Chambliss Ave NW, Suite 301.

In the coming weeks, cardiologists Dr. Yasir Akhtar, Dr. Fahd Chaudhry, Dr. Clint Doiron, Dr. Malcom Foster, Dr. Osareme Irivbogbe, Dr. William Lindsay, Dr. Ravi Mehta, Dr. Barry Michelson, and Dr. Steven Reed will join Dr. Martyn.   

 

Tennova Healthcare – Cleveland has steadily grown cardiac services over the past several years through physician and staff recruitment and capital investments in equipment and facilities, including a second catheterization lab for the STEMI program. Cleveland’s program will grow with the addition of Tennova Heart clinicians who provide a range of inpatient and outpatient cardiovascular services – from advanced treatments and testing to research and rehabilitation. 

 

With a private practice in the region since 2013, Malcom Foster, MD, FACC has watched the steady growth at the hospital and he welcomes the opportunity to be formally affiliated with the cardiology program at Tennova Healthcare – Cleveland.

 

“We look forward to bringing our advanced level of cardiology services to the Cleveland community.  My colleagues and I feel confident in the efforts that Tennova Healthcare – Cleveland has put in place over the past few years to grow their cardiac capabilities and this is the next step to continue cardiology advancement in the region,” said Malcom Foster, MD FACC Interventional Cardiologist Tennova Heart.  

 

“We are dedicating significant resources to grow vital cardiac services for residents of Bradley County and the surrounding communities. Bringing the experienced cardiologists of Tennova Heart to Cleveland is another big step to increase local access for patients to receive the care they need close to home”, states JT Barnhart, CEO Tennova Healthcare – Cleveland.
