DR. KWAME AKOSAH, M.D. '85, TO PROVIDE CARDIOLOGY SERVICES AT NEW CULPEPER MEDICAL CENTER

Dr. Kwame Akosah, M.D. ’85, will provide cardiology services as part of a new cardiology clinic opened inside Novant Health UVa Health System Culpeper Medical Center, providing continuous cardiology services to the Culpeper, VA area. The 6,000-square-foot newly-renovated clinic space includes seven exam rooms and four diagnostic rooms for echocardiography, exercise stress tests, nuclear stress tests and vascular ultrasound, according to hospital spokeswoman Ashton Miller.

Greg Napps, CEO of Culpeper Medical Center, informed a group of retired hospital employees last September that the new clinic was being built in the area of the hospital’s former administrative offices near the main entrance. “We are glad to now offer additional cardiology access through our partnership with UVa Health System,” Napps said. “We have known for some time that there is a local need for cardiology services and the new suite will allow us to better serve our community and our patients.” Renovations to enhance the lobby of the hospital began during the summer of 2016. 

“I am excited to see patients in our new clinic and to work alongside a dedicated team that cares for patients with a variety of cardiovascular conditions – from coronary artery disease to heart failure,” Akosah said. “And because of our unique relationship with UVa Health System, we are able to offer the same level of care provided at an academic medical center right here in the Culpeper community.”

Napps added that the new cardiology physicians will be available 24/7.

Meanwhile, the administrative staff that used to be inside the hospital was relocated to the Ruby Beck house across the street from the hospital to make room for the cardiology clinic.

After receiving his medical degree from Howard University College of Medicine in 1985, Akosah completed his internship in 1986 and his residency in 1989 from St. Vincent’s Hospital Medical Center of New York. He completed his fellowship at the Medical College of Virginia School of Medicine in 1992.
