In response to increased demand from patients, Metro Health is expanding its award-winning Heart & Vascular practice in Greenville. Metro Heart & Vascular is located at 1915 W. Washington St. in Greenville. The practice is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and will soon be expanding service hours. The development has more than doubled the size of the practice, which expanded from 2,300 square feet to 6,000 square feet. The expansion has also more than doubled the number of exam rooms, growing from three to eight. The practice offers consultative visits, nuclear cardiology, vascular ultrasound, echocardiography, stress testing and other services, as well as provides clinics for hypertension, Coumadin and device checks. Metro Heart & Vascular is growing rapidly in Greenville, said Mike Faas, president and CEO of Metro Health. Expanding the practice and our range of service will allow our physicians to continue to meet the needs of our patients. Metro Heart & Vascular opened in 2009. The practice currently includes eight cardiologists and is adding two additional cardiologists this month. The practice provides services at its main office inside Metro Health Hospital as well as in satellite offices in downtown Grand Rapids, Greenville, Sheridan, Holland and Allegan. The Greenville office is staffed by Dr. Paul Kovack, Dr. John Key and Paul Albright, P.A., as well as nurses and office staff. The team sees general cardiology patients as well as those struggling with vascular disease such as peripheral arterial disease, or PAD. PAD is a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries block the blood flow to arms and legs, causing numbness, leg pain and tissue damage and can lead to amputation. Metro Health Hospital has developed a nationally recognized specialty in the treatment of PAD and amputation prevention. Led by Dr. Jihad Mustapha, Metro Heart & Vascular physicians utilize leading-edge technology to clear blockages and restore circulation in even the most challenging of cases. The practice regularly attracts patients from around Michigan, across the U.S. and around the world.
