VCU Health Pauley Heart Center opens clinic in Tappahannock


Heart patients in Virginia’s upper Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck can now access VCU Health Pauley Heart Center closer to home.


VCU Health Pauley Heart Center at Tappahannock, located next to VCU Health Tappahannock Hospital, is now offering a full-time cardiology presence to treat patients with cardiovascular problems, including coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, heart rhythm disorders and hypertension.


The new clinic opened March 29. Routine tests such as cardiac imaging and stress tests will be performed inside VCU Health Tappahannock Hospital, while complex procedures will be performed at the VCU Medical Center campus in downtown Richmond.


In addition to patient services, Pauley will work with emergency teams and primary care physicians already established in the Tappahannock community, providing them with 24/7 access to board-certified cardiologists.


Archer Baskerville, M.D., Stephen Hunley, M.D., Michael Kelly, M.D., Michael Lenhart, M.D., and Mohammed Makkiya, M.D., make up the Pauley Tappahannock heart team, with Lenhart serving as medical director. Each has over 25 years of experience in cardiac care.


Greg Hundley, M.D., Pauley Heart Center director and chair of the Division of Cardiology, has led the development of innovative cardiology therapies and treatments for over 25 years. Having expanded the care and services of Pauley to regions throughout Virginia, Hundley is excited to share his team’s expertise with patients in the Tappahannock community.


“Our desire is to build a consistent cardiac care presence in the upper Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck communities,” he said. “With this, we can not only provide exceptional patient services, but assist local physicians in determining whether a cardiac emergency requires transfer to our Richmond facilities for more advanced care.”


“This partnership [with Pauley] will allow us to skillfully meet the needs of patients who may be safely and effectively treated here, close to home,” said Liz Martin, president of VCU Health Tappahannock Hospital. “Our work with Pauley Heart Center will enhance access and continuity for patients who may need a higher level of care due to the complexity of their condition.”


New clinic in Williamsburg


Williamsburg, Virginia, residents and William & Mary students, faculty and staff have increased access to comprehensive health care services including cardiac care. A new medical office at 332 N. Henry St. in Williamsburg offers services previously found at VCU Health’s 1162 Professional Drive location.


Called VCU Health at William & Mary, the new clinic has 22 exam rooms and is part of a long-term, 10-year strategic partnership between W&M and VCU Health System. Cardiac care, including chronic disease management, heart health assessments and risk reduction, is being provided by VCU Health Pauley Heart Center physicians Kenneth Ellenbogen, M.D., Jayanthi N. Koneru, M.D., and Rachit D. Shah, M.D.


This is the most comprehensive collegiate partnership of its kind for VCU Health System. “Advancing the health, wellness and well-being of all people we serve is a commitment that VCU and William & Mary share,” said Michael Rao, Ph.D., president of VCU and VCU Health System. “This partnership makes academic health care more accessible to everyone who calls Williamsburg home.”
