Director's Description

Asheville Cardiology and Mission Health Systems has provided comprehensive cardiac care to western North Carolina for over 40 years. We offer a broad spectrum of subspecialty cardiac care from the fetus to advanced geriatric ages in both inpatient and outpatient environments.


The Adult Congenital Cardiac Disease clinic was organized in 2015 by Dr. Jim McGovern. The complete array of outpatient/ambulatory testing is offered including congenital echocardiography, fetal echocardiography, advanced congenital imaging (CT/CMRI), cardiopulmonary exercise testing, and all necessary outpatient arrhythmia monitoring. Expert electrophysiology consultation is available.


For advanced invasive procedures including interventional cardiac catheterization and adult congenital cardiac surgeries, we use a shared-care approach with regional centers of excellence to assure the best possible outcomes are offered for the necessary procedure. Complex arrhythmia management is also shared with a Congenital Electrophysiologist at a comprehensive Adult Congenital Care program.
