WICHITA — Cypress Heart, which currently is with the Kansas Medical Center, is leaving to join a new cardiology group.
"Cypress Heart will be joining Heartland Cardiology April 1, 2013," says Heartland administrator Jane Robinson.
"That will make us the largest cardiology group in Wichita," she says. "We're excited about that."
This also is the biggest acquisition for Heartland since it was founded in 1994.
Heartland, which has eight physicians, has a main office at 551 N. Hillside. It also is on the west side at 8710 W. 13th.
Cypress Heart, which has six physicians, is at 9300 E. 29th St. North, which is where will it remain. Not all of its physicians are joining Heartland, though.
"We're not for sure the exact number yet," Robinson says.
Look for more details on the acquisition later today.

Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
