Greg Duick, MD, Retiring Cardiologist

After 33 years in medicine, Dr. Greg Duick is retiring from his cardiology practice and will take on a larger role as president of the Kansas Heart Hospital, a facility he co-founded.

Duick says his last day in practice with Cardiology Consultants of Kansas will be Dec. 3, but he will begin the transition to his new role in November. His patients will be dispersed among the 10 Cardiology Consultants physicians.

Duick already serves as chairman of the board at Kansas Heart, which was founded in 1999.

Duick says he will have added responsibilities as president of Kansas Heart Hospital, located at 3601 N. Webb Road.

His new duties include corporate leadership, working with regulatory agencies and developing relationships with physicians and hospitals in rural areas.

“Part of the job is education,” Duick says.

Serving as president, Duick says, will give him more structure with his daily schedule.

He says he has worked in an on-call capacity for most of his career because of the urgent nature of his practice.

This will be the first time Duick has focused solely on administrative responsibilities of Kansas Heart Hospital.

Duick served as CEO of the 54-bed hospital until 2004.

He said then that overseeing the day-to-day operations while managing his practice was too much to handle.
