Heart Center is a hospital-owned practice seeking a Board Certified/Board Eligible Invasive Cardiologist to join our established group in Decatur, AL . Our Decatur office is located on the campus of Decatur Morgan Hospital and currently has four Cardiologists. One of our physicians will be transferring to a Heart Center facility closer to his home, which will provide you with an established patient base upon arrival. Our group needs a new partner with strong Cath skills. We also read all nuclear and Echo studies. Permanent Pacemaker placement would be a plus.
Call is 1:4, however, call back is minimal as the Cath Lab isn’t open 24/7, giving our physicians an excellent work/life balance.
We are the dominant cardiology group in North Alabama, owning more than 90% of the market with an excellent payor mix. Physicians are employed by HH Heart Center, LLC which is a wholly-owned entity of Huntsville Hospital, one of the largest non-profit health care systems in the nation (with 881 beds), serving all of North Alabama and Southern Tennessee. This provides the group access to a large base of patients supported by a referral base of 170+ primary care physicians.
New physicians can enjoy several amenities including an excellent starting salary and comprehensive benefits package.

Outdoor recreation is a year-round staple in Decatur. Folks take advantage of our location on the Tennessee River for boating, water skiing, and fishing from the first warm days of Spring through those late, lazy Fall days when the sun on the water beckons. In Decatur, one of the ways we build a strong community is providing wonderful city parks and recreation facilities. Point Mallard Park features 750 acres for recreational use with year-round activities, including the J. Gilmer Blackburn Aquatic Center, golf course, indoor ice rink, hiking/biking trails by the river, sports fields and campground. The Jack Allen Sports Complex is our new 77-acre park that provides 30 acres of laser-graded and irrigated soccer and football fields. Festivals throughout the year bring our citizens and neighbors from around the region together to celebrate with music, balloons, food and fun. Other ways to have fun in Decatur include the North Alabama Birding Trail, the Carnegie Visual Arts Center, the Princess Theatre Center for the Performing Arts, Riverwalk Marina, Wheeler Wildlife Refuge, two historic districts, and unique shopping and dining experiences.
