CR Heart Center relocation brings physician group to downtown district


Mercy Medical Center is pleased to announce a new tenant in the hospital's 8th and 8th medical office building, 788 8th Street SE, Suite 400.  Cedar Rapids Heart Center, P.C. (CR Heart Center), which has operated in Hiawatha since 2007, will begin seeing patients in the new location on the office building's fourth floor, beginning Mon., Aug. 2.

CR Heart Center's change in location marks the latest medical group to establish practice within the boundaries of the recently proposed Downtown Medical District.

"We are extremely pleased to welcome a team of such superb heart specialists to the Mercy campus," says Tim Charles, president and CEO at Mercy.  "As Medical Director of Mercy's Cardiovascular Services and Medical Director of Cedar Rapids Heart Center, Dr. Cam Campbell has proven to be a great physician champion for our patients and an outstanding participant in many of our heart-related outreach efforts, such as 'Walk With a Doc' and numerous educational speaking opportunities.  CR Heart Center brings a wealth of expertise to Mercy and is a critical partner in the enhancement of the proposed Downtown Medical District."

CR Heart Center physicians are all board-certified.  Providers serving patients at the Center's new location include:

Dr. Cam Campbell, Medical Director, Dr. Henry Riter, Dr. Nick Hodgman, Dr. Dao Pham, Dr. Rick Ammar, Dr. Linda Lee, and  Jennifer Lee, ARNP.

CR Heart Center has also served patients in the Iowa City area for 23 years through Iowa City Heart Center, P.C., at 540 East Jefferson St., and at five satellite clinics in Washington, Fairfield, Mount Pleasant, Fort Madison and Dubuque.  The physician group was recently re-accredited for a three-year period by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Nuclear Medicine Laboratories.

CR Heart Center physicians will continue to see patients at Mercy Medical Center, St. Luke's Hospital and Virginia Gay Hospital in Vinton.  The physicians also provide medical support at Community Health Free Clinic.
