Kenneth J. Wool, M.D., of Colorado Springs Cardiologists has joined the medical staff at Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center. Wool will be based in Salida and is providing full-time cardiology services at the Salida hospital. Wool is board certified in cardiovascular disease and internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine.
“Our community is fortunate to have a full-time cardiologist with extensive training and experience who resides in our community,” said HRRMC CEO Robert Morasko.
Wool earned his degree in medicine from the University of South Alabama College of Medicine in Mobile. He completed a residency in internal medicine at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in Dallas, then served as chief medical resident at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine. He continued his training with fellowships in cardiology and nuclear cardiology at the University of Alabama in Birmingham.
Prior to moving to the Upper Arkansas Valley, Wool practiced as a cardiologist in Montgomery, Alabama. He also served on the faculty at the University of Alabama School of Medicine in Montgomery.
Wool and his wife, Celia, have five grown children who live in the Denver area. “We’ve owned a home in Westcliffe for many years and look forward to being in Colorado full time,” said Wool. “We enjoy being outdoors—especially hiking to the high mountain lakes and fly fishing.”
