Hospital Affiliations


Nine Meridian cardiologists, Dr. Wes Bennett, Dr. Tim Boyd, Dr. L. Shea Hailey, Dr. Scott Joransen, Dr. Thomas Plavac, Dr. E. Michael Purvis, Dr. Jennifer Rodriguez, Dr. Attila Roka, and Dr. Dale Touchstone, have joined together to form a new cardiology practice called Cardiovascular Institute of the South (CIS) in Meridian.  This expert team is now practicing at the CIS Meridian clinic located at Anderson Regional Medical Center- South at 1102 Constitution Avenue.

While this team of physicians has a new practice name and location, patients will receive the same world-class cardiovascular care from their trusted cardiologist in Meridian.  Additionally, these physicians are continuing to work at Anderson Regional Medical Center.

For more than 33 years, CIS’s passion has been to provide advanced, quality cardiovascular care to all communities, with a particular mission to make world-class care available in rural areas.  CIS has 15 locations in Louisiana with more than 600 employees and 50 physicians.  CIS also manages several cardiology programs in Alabama.

CIS offers many new resources to Meridian that will benefit patients, hospital partners, and the local medical community.  As a world-leader in preventing, detecting and treating cardiovascular disease, CIS offers diagnostic services as well as a wide range of treatment options for conditions such as carotid artery disease, peripheral artery disease, valvular disease and venous disease.  CIS is on the forefront of medical research, using advanced technology and minimally-invasive techniques with expert physicians in all aspects of cardiovascular medicine.

Patients already under the care of these cardiologists will be contacted soon regarding their follow up care at CIS.  To schedule an appointment at CIS in Meridian, or if you have any questions, call 601-282-8980.  To learn more about Cardiovascular Institute of the South, visit
