Walla Walla General Hospital Welcomes New General Cardiologist

Adventist Health Physicians, NW Regional Heart

Walla Walla General Hospital is delighted to welcome Anabel Facemire, MD, FACC, to our expert cardiology team. Dr. Facemire’s clinical interests are in preventative cardiology and women’s heart health. She is board certified in both cardiology and nuclear cardiology, and is fluent in Spanish.

Dr. Facemire aims to be an active partner in her patients’ journey to better health. “Through early detection, treatment and rehabilitation, I want to empower my patients to achieve abundant and long lasting health,” says Dr. Facemire. “I treat my patients using the latest evidence-based medicine and teach them the benefits of nutrition, exercise, stress management and spiritual support. By working side-by-side with my patients to prevent and treat heart disease — the #1 killer in this country — I believe we can continue to strive for a healthier community.”

She was born in Quito, Ecuador and lived in Argentina through her early years. Dr. Facemire decided to become a doctor when she was in second grade. The loving care of her pediatrician through a difficult illness inspired her to dream about becoming a compassionate physician.

Dr. Facemire received her medical degree from the University of Guayaquil in Ecuador. She then completed an Internal Medicine Residency at Graduate/Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia, before completing fellowship training in Cardiovascular Disease from Mount Sinai Medical Center’s Cardiology Division in New York City.

Prior to coming to Walla Walla, Dr. Facemire has served as a general cardiologist and a director of cardiac rehabilitation. Most recently, she was a General Cardiologist with expertise in echocardiography, nuclear medicine, preventative cardiology, and women’s health at Upper Chesapeake Cardiology at the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health in Bel Air, Md.

Anabel and her husband Fred have two children: Melody, a 9 year-old daughter; and Ethan, a 6 year-old son. She has participated in sprint triathlons for the last five years and enjoys music, the outdoors and vegan food.
