Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute expands team of physicians to 28, welcomes electrophysiology specialist Dr. Mark Willcox
ANCHORAGE, ALASKA – The Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute, Alaska’s leading provider of cardiovascular care, is proud to welcome Mark Willcox, M.D., to its staff of cardiovascular physicians. Dr. Willcox, an electrophysiology specialist with a varied background in cardiovascular disease and rural training, will join AHVI at its main Anchorage office.
Dr. Willcox received his undergraduate degree in chemistry from Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. He then earned his medical degree and graduated cum laude from Georgetown University School of Medicine in 2007. He spent the following three years as an internal medicine intern and resident at Georgetown University before becoming the chief internal medicine resident at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Washington, D.C. After completing his residencies, Dr. Willcox traveled to Peru, where he acted as co-founder and medical director of Sacred Valley Health, a community health worker training program dedicated to serving the rural Andean communities of the Sacred Valley in Cusco. Almost a year later, he returned to the United States to complete two fellowships, one in cardiovascular disease and the other in cardiac electrophysiology, at the University of Washington Medical Center. Dr. Willcox is board certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease.
“I’m excited to have this opportunity to serve Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute’s patients and work alongside the best cardiologists in the Last Frontier,” said Dr. Willcox.
With the addition of Dr. Willcox, who will be practicing in the clinic’s main Anchorage office, the Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute expands to a team of 28 specialty cardiologists. The Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute operates six locations across the state to service the cardiovascular needs of all Alaskans.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Dr. Willcox to AHVI as we continue to grow our team of top-level cardiovascular specialists,” said Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute CEO Robert Craig. “We strive to provide our patients with the highest quality of cardiovascular services and care in Alaska. By expanding our team, we are able to do that for even more patients across the state.”
