Cardiovascular Care Group Acquires Bakersfield Heart Hospital
The Cardiovascular Care Group (CCG) today announced it has finalized the acquisition of a majority interest in the Bakersfield (California) Heart Hospital from MedCath Corporation (NASDAQ: MDTH). It marks the second major acquisition by CCG this year as it continues to build a national network of regionally integrated delivery systems focused upon providing optimal care to patients with cardiovascular disease.
"We are committed to building centers of excellence in cardiovascular care that will transform the delivery of heart care from today's fragmented and inefficient approach into an integrated patient-centric system with superior outcomes and lower costs. We partner with exemplary practices and hospitals that value a team approach to care. We have found just that sort of extraordinary team at the Bakersfield Heart Hospital," said Harry R. Jacobson, MD, Chairman of the CCG Board.
