Two Nash UNC Health Care practices related to the treatment of heart disease are moving to a new location this month.

One of the UNC Cardiology at Nash practices and the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation program will be moving onto the Nash UNC Health Care campus this month while the other office of UNC Cardiology at Nash will remain on the Rocky Mount Medical Park. These new offices will be relocated behind the main hospital near the present location of Rocky Mount Eye Care Center in the building that formerly housed Boice-Willis Pediatrics.

The office of UNC Cardiology at Nash, which was previously located at 2412 Professional Drive, opened its new office on the Nash UNC Health Care campus on Monday.

Cardiologists practicing in the new office include Dr. Stephanie Martin, Dr. Michael Yeung, Dr. Ruihai Zhou, Dr. Carlos Espinoza, Dr. Zehra Husain and Nurse Practitioners Kellie Glover and Erica Mountjoy. Patients seeing Dr. Sid Shah for valve clinic appointments should also come to the new location, according to a press release from Nash UNC Health Care.

Current patients should have been notified about the move, but any questions can be directed to the practices at 252-962-2328.

Dr. Sudhir Prasada and Nurse Practitioner Phyllis Hayes are also now a part of UNC Cardiology at Nash after it was announced in April that these Boice Willis cardiology providers will be combining resources with UNC Cardiology at Nash. However, their patients will continue to be treated by them at their office at Boice-Willis Clinic’s location at Rocky Mount Medical Park on North Winstead Avenue.

Sarah Heenan, executive director at the Nash Heart Center on the Nash UNC campus, said the new move will be good for patients.

“Our patients will benefit from having closer collaboration among the cardiology team and an expanded offering of services, including a diuresis clinic for heart failure patients and outpatient procedures such as insertions of cardiac monitoring devices,” Heenan said in the release. “We are excited about the continued expansion of cardiology services in our community.”

Nash Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, which provides a wide variety of therapies and exercise equipment for patients recovering from heart attacks and other medical issues, will move from its location at 1051 Noell Lane, where it has been for roughly 20 years. It will be relocating to its new home on the Nash UNC Campus on July 15. Any patients with questions about the move should continue to call the office’s number of 252-962-3482.

“We are excited to have more space for our patients, new equipment and closer proximity to our cardiologist team to allow for easier consultation about patient care,” Mike Sohn, manager of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, said in the release. “Our patients will continue to receive cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitative care from the same providers at the new location.”

To find the location of the new office, patients will enter the hospital campus at 2460 Curtis Ellis Drive and take the first right at the traffic circle. They will then follow signs for Nash Medical Arts Mall, pass Nash Day Hospital and then veer left at the fork in front of the eye care building. The new location of these offices will be in the standalone, one story building on the left. The Nash Wound Care Center (with blue awning) is on the right side of the building, and UNC Cardiology at Nash and Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation will now be on the left side of the building, the release said.
