Southern Tennessee Regional Health System - Lawrenceburg officials announce the addition of cardiologist, Dr. John P. Kristofich to the medical community. Dr. Kristofich is opening Southern Tennessee Heart in March and will have office locations in both Lawrenceburg and Pulaski.

“We are thrilled to have Dr. Kristofich join our medical team,” said STRHS - Lawrenceburg CEO, Jeff Noblin. “Residents in Lawrence and surrounding counties currently do not have access to full-time cardiology and many have had to travel for this particular specialty, so it will be nice to have this resource right here in our town. Recruiting a full-time cardiologist to our community further demonstrates our hospital’s commitment to making communities health.”

Dr. Kristofich graduated magna cum laude from Manhattan College in Riverdale, New York and received his medical degree from the Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine and Dentistry in Piscataway, New Jersey.
