About CVCA

Champlain Valley Cardiovascular Associates was founded more than 25 years ago and evolved into the largest independent Cardiology practice in Vermont. Dr. Hillemann joined the practice in 2003 and Dr. Kirwan in 2005.

In April 2011 Drs. Hillemann and Kirwan moved the CVCA office to its new location at 50 Timber Lane in South Burlington while, under the increasing pressures of healthcare reform, many of the prior CVCA providers became hospital - employed physicians.

At the new location CVCA continues to provide the highest quality and full spectrum of cardiovascular care to its patients while preserving the highly personal, caring, compassionate and non-institutional environment the organization has been known for.

Drs. Hillemann and Kirwan are Board Certified in General and interventional Cardiology and offer 24/7 on call coverage to all their patients including consultative Cardiology services, acute hospital care, ER visit evaluation and cardiac Catheterization/Angioplasty for acute myocardial infarction and coronary chest pain treatment. During these encounters CVCA patients will always be seen by either Dr. Hillemann or Kirwan in person.

Dr Hillemann and Kirwan provide inpatient consultation at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington and at Porter Hospital in Middlebury.

At our South Burlington office the nursing Staff consists only of fully Registered Nurses with many years of experience in Cardiology. We offer convenient in office testing including Echocardiography, Stress Echocardiography, Nuclear medicine and regular stress testing, EKG monitoring and Duplex Ultrasound imaging of the Carotid arteries and abdominal aorta. Our highly skilled Technicians are responsible for obtaining the highest quality Nuclear and Echo images. All imaging labs are fully accredited.

While most patients are referred to CVCA by their primary care physicians and other cardiologists a self-referral for an outpatient evaluation or by directly requesting a CVCA physician during an inpatient evaluation are possible.
