Mishawaka, Ind. (April 3, 2013) – In order to serve patients in a more collaborative and comprehensive manner, Midwest Cardiovascular Specialists has joined the Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center (SJRMC) health system. Effective on April 1, 2013, the following cardiologists became part of the Saint Joseph Physician Network, a group of medical practices owned and operated by SJRMC:
Farid Jalinous, MD, FACC, FSCAI
Sachin Patel, MD, FACC
William Sarnat, MD, FACC
Ajazuddin Shaikh, MD, FACC
Ashfaq Turk, MD, FACC
The newly affiliated practice, now named Midwest Cardiology, is one of the largest and most extensively trained medical practices in Michiana that consists entirely of board certified cardiologists. This transition offers new opportunities for both physicians and patients.
“The team of cardiologists at Midwest has a reputation for being the first to introduce the latest, most advanced cardiovascular procedures, treatments and tests to patients in Michiana,” said Lori Price, Administrator of the Saint Joseph Physician Network. “Saint Joseph looks forward to working even more closely with these expert physicians as we set a new standard for heart and vascular care in our community.”
Midwest Cardiology provides a full range of cardiovascular services, including risk assessments, stress testing, renal artery stents, vascular ultrasounds and more. The practice also participates in more national heart and cardiovascular research than any other group, individual or practice in Northern Indiana.
Services will continue to be provided at the same location, in the Medical Office Building attached to the Mishawaka hospital. Patients of the physicians listed above do not need to reschedule future appointments. The change will not cause any disruption in care or treatment.
