“Sutherland Cardiology Clinic has long been known for its focus on quality and service, making the clinic an ideal partner for Methodist,” said Gary S. Shorb, president and CEO, of MLH. “Together we expect to provide even greater coordination of care, offering improved value for patients and their families, referring physicians and payers.

SCC will continue to serve patients at their 7460 Wolf River Boulevard location and at satellite clinics throughout the region. The clinic name will not change, and patients and referring physicians can expect a seamless transition. MLH hospitals will continue to work closely with other hospitals in our service area, and SCC physicians will continue to provide quality cardiology care at other Memphis hospitals just as they always have.
