Southern Heart Specialists, P.C. (SHS) has merged into Emory Specialty Associates (ESA), a wholly owned subsidiary of Emory Healthcare. With this merger, SHS joins forces with Emory Healthcare and Emory University School of Medicine.
Opening its doors in 1975, SHS was the first office in south metro Atlanta to provide cardiovascular care on an outpatient basis. The practice has grown to include 13 physicians and a large group of nurses, technologists and staff members. SHS offers a wide range of cardiovascular specialties, including angiography, vascular ultrasound, coronary angioplasty, stenting, echocardiography, nuclear cardiology and electrophysiology.
SHS will continue to offer cardiology services and provide direct patient care at their offices in Riverdale, Stockbridge, Locust Grove and Fayetteville.
