Comprehensive Cardiovascular Care (CCC) Group, the largest cardiology group in Wisconsin and one of the largest in the Midwest, has merged with Aurora Health Care, both of Milwaukee, in a deal that involves 15 interventional cardiologists, nine invasive cardiologists and eight electrophysiologists. The terms of the merger were not disclosed.
With the 39 cardiologists of CCC, Aurora will create a cardiovascular care specialty group practice that will provide heart care services for patients throughout eastern Wisconsin. CCC also includes one cardio-metabolic specialist and one research scientist. All will join Aurora, along with all 170 members of their staff.
The cardiologists also train the next generation of heart care specialists through a comprehensive cardiology fellowship program. Currently there are 23 fellows, ranking CCC's program, which will soon grow to 28 fellows.
