The East Texas Medical Center Regional Healthcare System and
Tyler Cardiovascular Consultants, P.A., have joined forces to bring
heart care to patients, announced Dianne Adelfio, vice president of
the ETMC Cardiovascular Institute.
CVC support staff are now ETMC team members, and the CVC
physicians became formally affiliated with ETMC, effective Aug. 15.
Tyler CVC physicians include Drs. Robert Carney, Brent Davis, David
Dick, David Hector, Raul Torres-Heisecke, Roderick Meese, Frank
Navetta, Robert Smith and Thaddeus Tolleson. These nine physicians
are also fellowship trained.
The physicians are located at Cardiac Plaza, a newly renovated
facility at 2401 SSE Loop 323 near McDonald Road (the former
location of Swann's Furniture for many years). Cardiac Plaza also
houses a diagnostic cardiovascular imaging center.
CVC physicians also see patients at ETMC hospitals in Athens,
Fairfield, Henderson, Jacksonville, Pittsburg and Quitman.
"We are proud to be affiliated with the ETMC Cardiovascular
Institute, and we look forward to new opportunities afforded by
this relationship as we continue to serve the patients of East
Texas," said Dr. Carney. "We believe the collaboration between CVC
and ETMC will further our shared mission of providing East Texans
with outstanding cardiac care."
Adelfio agrees: "The CVC group represents cardiac leadership in
East Texas, and to have this relationship with ETMC is a bonus for
our cardiac patients. We are so pleased that this respected group
of physicians with more than 25 years of experience in Tyler will
now be affiliated with ETMC."
Adelfio said she believes the relationship with Tyler CVC will
help streamline the process of care for cardiac patients,
enabling them to receive
outpatient diagnostics and care with a new level of efficiency and
