Owensboro Health is collaborating with the cardiology experts of Cincinnati Children’s and Kentucky Children’s Hospital to bring “the most advanced congenital heart care closer to you” as part of the Joint Heart Program. 

Three cardiologists from The Joint Heart Program are now accepting referrals for diagnosis and treatment of a full range of heart conditions for children, teens and adults born with heart defects.

These patients will be seen at the Owensboro Health Pleasant Valley Medical Office Building (attached to Owensboro Health Regional Hospital) on Wednesdays.

Services offered include new patient and follow-up appointments, syncope evaluation and management, pediatric preventive cardiology, adult congenital heart care, and cardiac care for pregnant women. The site will also offer in-office testing such as EKGs, echocardiograms, 24-hour Holter and 14-day event monitors, and 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitors. 

“Owensboro Health is proud to bring world-renowned heart care to children and adults in our community,” said Dr. Francis DuFrayne, Chief Medical Officer. “Our work with Cincinnati Children’s will be another strong partnership, similar to what we have with UK HealthCare and UofL Health, all of which elevate the level of care available locally.” 

Dr. Keller, medical director of Cincinnati Children’s Greater Louisville and Western Kentucky heart practice, said: “Cincinnati Children’s is committed to expanding services to the communities that request our care. We’re excited to bring pediatric and adult congenital heart care to Owensboro and the surrounding communities, in collaboration with Kentucky Children’s Hospital and Owensboro Health, so that patients and families can access world-class care closer to home.”

Participating cardiologists:

  • Dr. Bradley Keller — Specializes in pediatric and adult congenital heart disease.
  • Dr. Craig Alexander — Specializes in pediatric and adult congenital heart disease, pregnancy complicated by heart disease.
  • Dr. Shaun Mohan — Specializes in pediatric cardiology and pediatric electrophysiology.
