Penn State Health to acquire 112-member cardiology group

Hershey, Pa.-based Penn State Health revealed plans May 3 to acquire Berks Cardiologists, which maintains locations in Wyomissing, Pa., and Pottsville, Pa.

The Penn State Health board of directors voted May 2 to approve the terms of the agreement.

Officials said the affiliation will allow practicing physicians at Berks Cardiology to offer specialized cardiac care to residents closer to home, including at the Penn State Heart and Vascular Institute, the region's only transplant center.

The agreement, which may go into effect as early as Aug. 1, will incorporate all 112 Berks Cardiologists employees, including 14 physicians, and transition them into Penn State Health employees.
