CHI St. Vincent Expands Access to Cardiovascular Care in Southwest Arkansas with new Heart Clinic in De Queen

CHI St. Vincent Heart Institute, the state’s largest and most diverse network of heart specialists with more than 25 community locations across Central and Southwest Arkansas, announced the creation of a new clinic to begin serving patients in and around De Queen, Arkansas. Cardiologists Dr. Yuba Acharya and Dr. Srinivas Vengala will begin seeing patients on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at Heart Clinic Arkansas - De Queen located in the new Sevier County Medical Center at 960 US Hwy 71 beginning on April 11, 2023.

“Access to health care, or the lack thereof, can significantly influence both the quantity and quality of someone’s life,” said CHI St. Vincent Heart Institute President Marcia Atkinson. “We know that access to quality heart care is limited in rural parts of Southwest Arkansas. That’s why this step to ensure patients in De Queen and its surrounding communities have convenient access to our leading cardiologists is so important.”

Drs. Acharya’s and Vengala’s consistent presence in De Queen will now make quality heart care more convenient than ever for nearby communities. That care goes beyond merely treatment as they work to develop a plan that’s right for each unique patient so they can get back to the things that really matter in their lives.
