About Northwest Cardiologists
Northwest Cardiologists was founded in 1990. In 2000, the expansion began adding additional cardiovascular specialists with specific areas of expertise, and extended from Hillsboro to Portland. Maintaining admitting privileges at both Tuality Community Hospital and Providence St. Vincent Hospital improved continuity of care between inpatient and outpatient settings, and allowed the practice to participate in most health plans. It was one of the first cardiovascular practices in Oregon to incorporate a full EHR in 2000, improving accuracy and communication among the providers, staff, and patient records. This single specialty, independent group better serves independent physicians and their patients, while maintaining collaborative relationships with hospital administrations. The emphasis on value, quality, easy access, guidelines based, compassionate care have remained the key to their success.
