Healient Physician Group has hired Dr. Patrick Santiago, a board-certified cardiologist with more than 27 years of practice who specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases and conditions of the heart and blood vessels. Dr. Santiago will join the Healient Group located at the hospital campus and will begin accepting new patients on Sept. 1, 2020.

A graduate of medical school at the Autonomous University of Guadalajara, Mexico, Dr. Santiago completed his residency and internship through Yale Medical School at Saint Raphael Hospital and his cardiology fellowship at the Mid-America Heart Institute at St. Luke’s Hospital in Kansas City, Mo.

He started his career as an associate professor of medicine at Truman Medical Center where he held several leadership roles during his tenure and went on to provide cardiac care for patients in both urban and rural communities, working at St. Luke’s, Olathe Medical Center, and Midwest Heart Associates. A former director of cardiology at Lee’s Summit Medical Center, Dr. Santiago returns to the area after practicing for the past eight years at Maine Health in Belfast, Maine. He is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology, American College of Physicians, and the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology.

“Dr. Santiago brings a multicultural and multilingual background in addition to his medical expertise,” says Jodi Fincher, CEO. “We are privileged to extend his specialized care to the St. Joseph community as he joins the outstanding Healient team and furthers its mission to provide every patient with targeted, personalized care and quality outcomes.”

Healient Physician Group is a well-known name in Kansas City as a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of select healthcare specialties, including conditions of the heart; traumatic, diabetic, and post-operative wounds; and various forms of vascular disease. With 40 full-time employees, including nine physician specialists with decades of experience in their respective fields, Healient’s services include state-of-the-art diagnostic and minimally invasive treatment of heart and vascular conditions.

Earlier this year, Healient moved to the hospital campus in a $3 million relocation project that included a newly renovated and 6,644 square-foot facility and is part of the hospital’s ongoing turnaround to provide world-class healthcare to the local area.
