A Lubbock hospital is partnering with another organization.

The Lubbock Heart Hospital is teaming with Symbion Healthcare to help expand their service lines beyond cardiac and vascular procedures to also include in-patient orthopedic and urology service as well.

Symbion, a national operator of surgical facilities, includes hospitals in Idaho, Colorado, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Austin, Texas.

“We look forward to working with Symbion Healthcare as they have extensive healthcare experience, and the partnership will allow Lubbock Heart Hospital to better serve west Texas and Eastern New Mexico,” said Roy Vinson, CEO of Lubbock Heart Hospital.

Lubbock Heart Hospital opened in December of 2003, includes 74-beds and is focused on the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
