Heart Group merges with Sanger

Heart Group of the Carolinas has merged with Sanger Heart and Vascular Institute, effective Sept. 1.

The practice will adopt the Sanger name, but office locations will remain the same at CMC-NorthEast in Concord and at 307 Yadkin Street in Albemarle. The group’s 10 physicians and six mid-level providers will continue seeing existing patients and welcome new ones.

Dr. Patrick Anonick, who has been president of Heart Group, said the merger will give patients “greater access to more integrated providers and services.” He noted that Sanger recently received national accreditation to implant ventricular assist devices, or VADs, that preserve heart function in patients who cannot receive a heart transplant.
