Orlando Health Medical Group FHV Health
Orlando Health Medical Group FHV Health is a multispecialty physician group including primary care and cardiology practices with locations throughout Lake, Sumter and Marion counties.
For more than three decades, the practice has provided community access to nationally recognized heart and vascular experts and world-renowned medical innovation.
FHV Health was founded in 1991 by internationally-recognized Interventional cardiologist Dr. David Lew, who had a dream of bringing cardiac catheterization – the most sophisticated tool available for diagnosing heart disease – to the local community. Dr. Lew did just that, locally performing more than 800 cardiac catheterizations that first year. His goal was to bring together specialists in vascular surgery, primary care and cardiology to detect diseases earlier and treat them more effectively.
The practice soon expanded its scope of services, combining the talents of leading physicians who had expertise in diagnosing and treating a wide range of conditions and diseases of the heart and vascular system with the latest technology and treatment options available. The practice also developed improved techniques and technologies that today have become the industry standard. In addition to cardiac catheterization, FHV Health cardiologists were the first in the area to perform other procedures including primary angioplasty, repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms and carotid artery stenting to prevent or alleviate strokes, increasing patient options for lifesaving and diagnostic procedures.
In April 2021, FHV Health joined Orlando Health, creating an alignment that furthers FHV Health’s mission to bring together the talents and expertise of leading physicians to provide innovative and quality care.
Today, Orlando Health Medical Group FHV Health offers services that are far reaching in breadth and scope. Our team of consultative and interventional cardiologists is committed to providing the highest level of cardiovascular and peripheral vascular care by combining advanced training, clinical trials and other research, a highly trained nursing staff and leading-edge technology. Working as a team across cardiovascular disciplines, we are able to provide the best possible and individualized plan of care for the diagnosis and treatment of each patient.
