Alabama Cardiovascular Group to open office in Sylacauga


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Alabama Cardiovascular Group (ACG), an affiliate of Grandview Health, will open an office in Sylacauga on Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2016. The office will be located in the Medical Office Building at 209 W. Spring Street, Suite 304.

“We are excited about this opportunity and look forward to working with, and alongside, the outstanding medical staff at Coosa Valley and to expanding our services in the Sylacauga community,” said Joaquin Arciniegas, MD, senior partner with ACG. “Our goals are to make access to services more convenient for patients and to provide excellent patient care for those we serve.”

The new office will be open Monday through Friday and staffed by cardiologists Juan Bernal, MD, FACC; Hasan Guven, MD, FACC; Byron Jones, MD, FACC; David Schultz, MD, PhD; and James Taylor, MD, FACC. These five cardiologists have a collective 100 years of experience. Jeff Herald, Nurse Practitioner, will also be in the office daily.

ACG will offer a full array of inpatient and outpatient cardiology services, including invasive and non-invasive procedures.

“It is our pleasure to welcome the entire team of ACG to Coosa Valley Medical Center” said Glenn C. Sisk, CEO of Coosa Valley Medical Center. “This group of physicians has a long history of providing high quality, compassionate cardiovascular care to patients throughout Alabama. In particular, they have worked very effectively in other markets to allow patients the opportunity to receive care close to home and we believe this philosophy will be well-received in our community. We have been fortunate to recruit many fine physicians to CVMC over the years and the addition of ACG further advances our efforts to deliver care at the highest level.”

ACG is comprised of 13 cardiologists and five nurse practitioners. The group’s primary office is located on the campus of Grandview Medical Center, just off Highway 280, in Birmingham. ACG also has offices in Pell City, Trussville, Fultondale and the Southside of Birmingham.
