The next decade brought tremendous growth in patient volumes. To meet this demand Metropolitan Cardiology Consultants expanded their geographic reach, clinical services, and number of cardiologists and providers. In time, Metropolitan Cardiology Consultants became the provider of comprehensive cardiovascular care to the communities served by Mercy Hospital, Unity Hospital, Buffalo Hospital, Elk Ridge Health Center, Maple Grove and newer clinic sites in St. Michael, Cokato, and Annandale. With a focus on high quality care, our cardiologists and cardiac surgeons became regional leaders in their field and helped to achieve national recognition for the hospitals in which they served.
With further expansion in clinical services and patient volumes, Metropolitan Heart and Vascular Institute was formed in 2007 when Metropolitan Cardiology Consultants, Twin Cities Heart and Lung, and Allina Health formed a strategic partnership to streamline and deliver cardiovascular services under one unified organization. In 2012, Minneapolis Vascular Physicians joined MHVI, bringing their expertise in vascular surgery to complete our array of cardiovascular services. Currently, MHVI serves as an integrated organization that allows various providers of cardiovascular services to deliver high quality patient-centered care in general cardiology, interventional cardiology, electrophysiology, cardiovascular surgery, peripheral vascular disease, noninvasive cardiovascular imaging, and cardiac rehabilitation.
