"Now patients can obtain many of the services they need at one convenient location, instead of having to drive to different places."

Several new specialists in the fields of Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Surgery, Urology, Sports Medicine and Pulmonary will join the medical team, making it easier for patients to access specialized care.
