Today, June 1, The SwedishAmerican Heart Institute will open and feature an expanded team of highly-skilled cardiologists including familiar faces, Dr. Andrew Kotis and Dr. Mukesh Singh, as well as nurse practitioners Kim Christenson, Lisa Larson, Laura Padron and Elissa Russell. And we’ll soon be introducing new top providers including:

The SwedishAmerican Heart Institute will be housed in the same space, Renaissance Pavilion, 1340 Charles Street, Suite 300, Rockford. The new clinic will be renovated and expanded to provide a more spacious and comfortable experience for everyone.
