Modern Physician

Most cardiovascular practices are still owned primarily by physicians, but hospital ownership of practices continues to rise, and now the percentage of cardiologists employed by physician-owned practices is the same as the percentage employed by hospitals, according to an American College of Cardiology survey.

The ACC compared the results of this year’s survey, conducted between June and August, to those from 2007. According to the survey, 35% of cardiologists today are employed by a hospital-owned practice, and 35% are employed at a physician-owned practice.
