LEXINGTON, Ky. (Apr. 28, 2014) — Dr Alison Bailey has been named the director of Ambulatory and Preventive Cardiology for UK HealthCare.
In this role, Bailey will oversee the Gill Heart Institute's outpatient practices in Lexington and continue to provide oversight of the cardiac rehabilitation program.
“Unfortunately, the patients we see have more complex health issues than ever before,” said Dr. Susan Smyth, director of the Gill Heart Institute. “With the shift to outpatient care, a coordinated effort is needed to meet the longitudinal needs of our patients across the full-care continuum.”
“Alison’s ability to collaborate with faculty and staff is demonstrated, and her leadership will ensure that the care we provide is patient- and family-focused with a deep commitment to clinical excellence.”
Dr. Bailey completed her medical degree and postgraduate training at the University of Kentucky. She has participated in several leadership roles at UK HealthCare, including the founding director of the Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation Program, medical director of the Multi-Specialty Medical Clinic at Maxwell Street, and the associate director of the Cardiology Fellowship Program.
