4 cardiologists quit UC for Christ Hospital

        Four well-known cardiologists have decided to resign faculty posts at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and to move their offices to Christ Hospital.

        Effective Jan. 1, Drs. Charles Hattemer, John Schneider, John Runyon and Peter Engel, all members of the Ohio Heart Health Center, will move out of offices attached to University Hospital and cease most, if not all, the procedures they performed there.

        The dispute started about a month ago, when college officials moved to terminate faculty contracts with the four doctors more than a year before the contracts were to expire, said Dr. Charles Abbottsmith, a senior partner with Ohio Heart.

        Officials with UC College of Medicine and University Hospital had no comment.
