ALBUQUERQUE — Lovelace Health System announced last week it has acquired New Mexico Heart Institute (NMHI), the state’s largest private cardiology practice.

This transaction solidifies a long-standing relationship between the two entities, Lovelace Health System officials said in a press release last week.

“We are pleased to build upon our partnership with the well-respected and highly trained cardiac team of New Mexico Heart Institute,” said Ron Stern, president and CEO of Lovelace Health System. “Together, we have built one of the state’s most recognized and well-regarded cardiovascular programs.

“By fully integrating the Heart Hospital of New Mexico at Lovelace Medical Center and NMHI, we will be able to offer improved continuity of care and a more seamless patient experience. This partnership also provides an opportunity to better serve the rural communities of New Mexico where cardiology services can be scarce.”

NMHI currently serves patients in 25 New Mexico communities. As part of Lovelace, NMHI will retain its name and leadership, according to the press release.
