Morris Hospital has opened a new cardiology physician practice at 151 W. High Street in Morris. The practice is called Cardiovascular Specialists of Morris Hospital.

Dr. Syed Ahmed is the first cardiologist to join the practice. He comes to Morris from Mercy Hospital in Des Moines where he was a practicing cardiologist for 12 years.

Ahmed received his medical degree from Sindh Medical College and completed his internship at Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Center, both in Pakistan. He completed a three-year internal medicine residency at Brookdale University Hospital in Brooklyn, N.Y., followed by a three-year fellowship in general cardiology at State University of New York and a one-year fellowship in interventional cardiology at University of Nebraska Medical Center.

Ahmed is board certified in internal medicine, nuclear cardiology, echocardiography, cardiovascular disease and interventional cardiology. He is a member of the American College of Cardiology.

Ahmed is joined in the office by Kathy Wexelberg, a Morris Hospital nurse with 21 years of experience, including the past 10 years in the cardiovascular setting.

Beginning in October, Ahmed will have a second office at the Morris Hospital Ridge Road Campus in Channahon.
