SeHealth to manage cardiology clinic; Duke providers to remain

Southeastern Health (SeHealth) has proudly partnered with Duke Health since 2006 to serve patients throughout the region with a dedicated cardiology practice along with Southeastern Health Heart and Vascular, which is located on the campus of Southeastern Regional Medical Center.


“We sincerely value these patients and appreciate that they have entrusted both SeHealth and Duke with their heart and vascular needs during times of health crisis as well as health stability,” said SeHealth President/CEO Joann Anderson.

Beginning November 2017, Southeastern Health will manage the day-to-day operations of Duke Cardiology and Cardiovascular Surgery of Lumberton. The management transition from Duke Health to SeHealth will include a name change to Southeastern Cardiology and Cardiovascular Clinic. The following Duke physicians will remain on our team: Drs. Charles Anene, Matthew Cummings, Terry Lowry, Sydney Short and Christopher Walters.

“This is a very positive and beneficial change for our community,” said Interventional Cardiologist Dr. Matthew Cummings. “Until now, our ability to expand outpatient cardiovascular services has been limited by regulations which oversee partnerships such as the one between Duke Health and Southeastern Health.  The sole purpose of the new agreement between Duke and Southeastern Health is to allow much needed growth of outpatient cardiovascular services offered locally, while maintaining a strong relationship with the physicians and support staff at Duke. The physicians, midlevel providers, and research staff in Lumberton will remain Duke employees, and continue to collaborate with our colleagues at Duke University Medical Center. Most importantly, our patients will continue to have direct and unlimited access to expert cardiovascular consultation and care from Duke University if and when that’s needed.”

“In addition to cardiology and cardiothoracic services, we plan to expand our vascular surgery and vascular medicine practice while adding electrophysiology,” said SeHealth Vice President of Post-Acute Care Services and Chief Continuum of Care Officer Lori Dove.

Duke Health will continue to manage and staff Southeastern Health Heart and Vascular.

The newly renamed Southeastern Cardiology and Cardiovascular Clinic of Lumberton is located within the Southeastern Health Mall on the campus of Biggs Park Mall at 2936 N. Elm Street, Suite 103, in Lumberton. For more information or to request guidance for a referral, call (910) 671-6619.
