South Hampton Community Hospital (SHCH) is pleased to announce its integration of a prominent Dallas Cardiovascular Medical Practice, Comprehensive Cardiac and Vascular Interventional Group or CCVIG, notably Mark Jenkins, M.D., Tu Le M.D., and Carl Horton, M.D.. The addition of CCVIG means that South Hampton Community Hospital will be able to implement a full service cardiac and vascular program that will meet the demands and needs of the community.

SHCH is located near Hwy 67 and Hampton Rd. in Dallas, Texas, which is surrounded by a population experiencing the highest incidence of heart disease, diabetes, and kidney disease in Texas. This alarming rate of untreated disease emphasizes the immediate need for CCVIG and SHCH to develop first-rate cardiovascular services to the community. Edward Downs, CEO of South Hampton Community Hospital is providing the leadership for this association which gives the community a reason to keep their healthcare close to home.

“This is an opportunity for both entities to get together and become something that’s bigger in this community to service the entire community. We will be a full-service hospital with nationally recognized physicians providing superior quality patient care. I can’t imagine any other group coming to the table to work with us than these phenomenal cardiologists,” stated Edward Downs.

“Often, life threatening diseases can be prevented through changes in our daily routines and by getting regular health care check-ups and screenings. I am pleased to see that South Hampton Community Hospital is expanding its services to help close the gap in health care disparities,” stated State Representative Helen Giddings.

“This is our community. These are our neighbors. We have got to take care of them. I want my city strong, my community strong. The partnership between CCVIG and SHCH brings together a community hospital wanting to keep our city strong and a premiere cardiology group wanting to close the gap on healthcare disparity,” stated Phil Romano acclaimed restaurateur, artist and member of the Dallas Business Hall of Fame.

As a member of the Steering Committee of the “Close the Gap” campaign, a national initiative of Boston Scientific Corporation aimed at decreasing healthcare disparities through education, awareness, and outreach programs, G. Mark Jenkins, M.D., Johns Hopkins trained and President of CCVIG, stated “CCVIG is excited about the association with SHCH. The mission of any cardiovascular program is to change lives and change communities. Through this association with SHCH, we are uniquely poised to address and eliminate the cardiovascular disparities in the South Dallas community.”

“CCVIG has always strived to be leaders in cardiovascular care. With the changing environment in healthcare, new means of healthcare delivery are needed. This is a tremendous step in the direction of overcoming the practice of fragmented care,” stated Dr. Le, UCLA trained and co-founder of CCVIG.

Carl Horton, M.D., member of CCVIG and University of Alabama – Birmingham trained Cardiologist added, “SHCH has shown a strong commitment to building a first rate cardiovascular program by purchasing state of the art equipment including cardiac catheterization and vascular laboratory suites, as well as modern cardiovascular imaging. They have also recruited experienced and highly qualified staff to ensure the best in patient care.”

SHCH’s mission is to provide quality, accessible healthcare within the community, as well as to provide a full range of needed services in a caring and courteous atmosphere, treating all patients with dignity and respect. The partnership of SHCH and CCVIG will prove to be the means by which the need for cardiovascular services within the community and the disparity of cardiovascular disease within this community is closed.
