Cypress Heart to leave Kansas Medical Center for Heartland Cardiology

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.
