Dr. Bharat H. Sangani finished his Cardiology Fellowship at Mount Carmel Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio in 1988. Upon completion, Dr. Sangani wanted to utilize his education and experience to make a difference in the area of Cardiology advancement and find a place to practice that had not reached its full extent. Upon a visit to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, It was surprising to him to find that local advanced cardiac patients, especially those who needed balloon angioplasty, had to travel to either Mobile, Alabama or New Orleans, Louisiana to get treated. With this knowledge, Dr. Sangani researched the idea of bringing an angioplasty program to the Gulf Coast of Mississippi and encountered resistance due to the current lack of confidence and unavailability of an experienced cardiac team to perform the angioplasty procedure.
Dr. Sangani decided not to let obstacles get in his way and moved to Mississippi to create a team of qualified professionals to provide the finest and latest cardiology treatment options to the local community. As a result of his determination and desire to provide the best possible cardiac care, Coast Cardiology Center was born in 1988.
Since that time, dozens of Cardiologists have been attracted to the Gulf Coast providing one of the finest Cardiac Care centers to the local community and surrounding areas. Keeping with time, Coast Cardiology Center has continued to grow and now boasts to have four Board Certified Cardiologists, four Nurse Practitioners and numerous Registered Nurses, Managers and support staff.
As a successful Cardiologist, Dr. Sangani decided not to stop there. In 1992, he entered the real estate and hotel development business which led to the formation of Encore Enterprises, Inc. in 1999. This company was created to centralize management of all his real estate operations that have grown from one local property, to currently 37 nationally franchised holdings in 13 states, as well as a thriving multi-faceted commercial and retail development business.
