Athol Morgan, MD

CATONSVILLE, Md. (April 11, 2024) Meadow Park Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Catonsville has welcomed Athol Morgan, MD, to its clinical leadership team; he is serving as co-director of the skilled nursing center’s Cardiopulmonary Care program. The appointment comes on the heels of Meadow Park earning the American Heart Association’s (AHA’s) new Skilled Nursing Facility Heart Failure Center certification. 

“Dr. Morgan is well-respected for his specialization in cardiology and leadership acumen; Meadow Park is fortunate to have him in a leadership position,” said Nikki Gachot, regional director of market development at Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports the center. “Dr. Morgan’s appointment further positions Meadow Park as a skilled nursing provider of choice in the region, particularly in regard to cardiac care.”  

Meadow Park’s recent AHA certification also speaks to the quality of its physician-led Cardiopulmonary Care program. For heart patients, the program focuses on helping achieve the most active life possible despite any diagnoses and related physical limitations. Earned by less than 2% of skilled nursing centers nationwide, to date, the Heart Failure Center certification recognizes hospitals and healthcare facilities that provide high-quality care for patients with heart failure. 

“This advanced certification from the AHA recognizes Meadow Park for our exceptional patient care, which follows the latest evidence-based cardiology guidelines and standards for heart failure care,” noted Dr. Morgan, a member of the board of directors for Maryland’s AHA chapter. “Our dedicated team at Meadow Park works hand-in-hand aiming to improve outcomes for our patients with chronic heart failure and its co-morbidities.” 

Board certified in internal medicine and cardiology, Dr. Morgan is affiliated with LifeBridge Health System, serving as director of cardiology at Grace Medical Center. He was honored with AHA’s 2020 Watkins-Saunders Award, which recognizes  

individuals and/or organizations committed to equality in healthcare. Dr. Morgan also serves as co-director of Cardiopulmonary Care at Westgate Hills Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Baltimore, another Marquis-supported facility.
