Oswego Health is pleased to announce that one of the area’s largest primary care physician practices is joining the health system’s Physician Care P.C.
Oswego Family Physicians (OFP), located at 110 W. Utica St., in Oswego, officially became part of the health system on Sept. 30th.
The Oswego Health captive professional corporation, Physician Care P.C., provides physician services in bariatrics, cardiology, general surgery, primary care, orthopedics, and otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat).
“This is an exciting opportunity for the health system and for Oswego Family Physicians,” said Oswego Health President and CEO Michael Harlovic. “We are pleased to welcome the practice’s four physicians, the advanced care providers and the support staff to Oswego Health. “These medical professionals have been providing exceptional primary care services for many years and through the practice we expect to expand access to this care, which is lacking in our community.”
Harlovic stressed that community members who seek care at the practice will see few changes. “They are very successful in delivering outstanding medical care to their patients and we have no plans to change their patient care methods,” he said. “We are fortunate to retain the four physicians who the community has embraced due to the exceptional care they provide. The physicians include Robert Morgan, MD, FAAFP; Douglas Guenter, MD, Mark Humphrey, DO, and Micheal Stephens, MD, as well as the two advanced care providers; Physician Assistant Jessica Digby and Nurse Practitioner, Emily Weston, as well as the support staff.”
OFP will maintain its West Utica Street office, along with the same phone and fax numbers. The practice’s website will be redirected to oswegohealth.org, where patients will find the OFP patient portal.
“By affiliating with Oswego Health we will be able to concentrate on meeting the healthcare needs of our patients,” Dr. Morgan. “In just the last few years, the regulatory demands on a medical practice have become cumbersome and very time consuming. Oswego Health will now administer all these requirements for us.”
Adds Dr. Stephens, “This affiliation will allow us to work with their leadership team to recruit more primary care physicians to the area,” he said. “Today, recruitment is not typically a task done by independent physicians. To secure the right candidate takes many months of work. We look forward to Oswego Health helping us recruit outstanding individuals who will join us in delivering care right here in our community.”
