MountainView Hospital is pleased to announce that it has opened Las Vegas Heart Associates, a cardiology practice offering the full spectrum of cardiovascular care for the Las Vegas valley.
The practice currently employs six cardiologists and is located on the campus of MountainView Hospital. The clinic is at 2880 N. Tenaya Way, Suite 100, 89128.
"By employing a group of cardiologists, we will be able to continue to raise the bar of the quality of care that is delivered to our heart patients, at every stage of their care," said Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Chief Executive Officer. "The physicians who have joined the practice are experts in their field, and we are lucky to have them join us at MountainView."
Among the areas of specialty, the practice will cover cardiology, interventional cardiology, sports cardiology (adult), heart failure and will provide in-office Echo testing. A full list of services can be found here. The cardiology program at MountainView will continue to be an "open" model, meaning affiliated community physicians will still practice at MountainView and will continue to be an integral part of the patient care continuum.
Las Vegas Heart Associates offers comprehensive patient management using the latest techniques, equipment and procedures. The clinic is part of the larger Las Vegas Heart Institute, which includes the MountainView Cardiovascular & Thoracic Surgery Associates and the hospital's outpatient cardiac rehab program. While common in other states, physician employment and hospital-owned clinics are rare in Nevada.
"We hope that by breaking the mold of how we deliver care, we will exceed the quality of that care we provide to patients," said Dr. Jeffery Levisman, board certified interventional cardiologist, Chief of Cardiology and Medical Director of Transcatheter Valve Replacement. "Our goal at Las Vegas Heart Associates is to provide patients access to the most comprehensive and total care, working with our team to achieve the very best outcomes."
MountainView Hospital has earned high marks for its quality heart care, including recognition from U.S. News & World Report as being a "high performing hospital" in the areas of heart failure and COPD (2019/2020). Additionally, the Society for Thoracic Surgeons has ranked MountainView as a three-star program (the highest rating available) for isolated valve repair and replacement (MVRR) procedures and mitral valve repairs and replacements with coronary artery bypass graft procedures (MVRR+CABG). MountainView also is a Joint Commission certified Chest Pain Center.
