Lourdes Health System Acquires South Jersey Heart Group

Lourdes Health System in Camden, N.J., has acquired South Jersey Heart Group, according to a Lourdes news release.

South Jersey Heart Group includes 17 cardiologists and five offices in southern New Jersey. The practice is the second cardiology group acquired by Lourdes this year. The hospital acquired Associated Cardiology Consultants in January.

"We are pleased to have South Jersey Heart Group join us as we develop a physician alignment model that not only makes good business sense, but also supports our vision of patient-centered care," said Alexander J. Hatala, President and CEO of the system. "South Jersey Heart Group, together with Associated Cardiovascular Consultants and members of our Cardiovascular Clinical Co-management model, are creating a true continuum of care where we can eliminate the financial and regulatory barriers that have previously separated hospital and physician office-based services. This will allow us to provide the highest quality and efficient care in the setting that is best for the patient."
