Where Great Cardiology Care Gets Better

We are a network that empowers the nation’s leading cardiologists
to grow their practices and build their legacies.

The Perks of the Partnership

Our Mission

TX Heart Partners was founded to help doctors get back to doing what they love—patient care.

Our Objective

We fuel growth for our partner practices by building their brands and investing in their people—not seeking to change what’s already working!

Our Difference

Backed by Leon Healthcare Partners, we bring capital support through the lens of a family office, interested in long term relationships—not traditional, slash and cut private equity.
