OWENSBORO, Ky. – Owensboro Health has purchased Ohio Valley Surgical Specialists, a long-standing provider of surgical services.
The practice, which has provided surgical care in Perry County for more than 20 years, will adopt the Owensboro Health name and be known as Owensboro Health Surgical Specialists.
The group of seven physicians will continue to practice at Perry County Memorial Hospital, meanwhile moving their outpatient services to the Riverfront Medical Clinic office building in downtown Tell City.
“We view this move as a great opportunity to further improve what we consider an excellent surgical service line,” said Dr. Christopher Glaser, managing partner for Ohio Valley Surgical Specialists. “By joining Owensboro Health we can continue to expand and serve the growing need for services in Kentucky and southern Indiana.”
“Having this group of established and respected surgeons join Owensboro Health is a natural next step toward improving the health of the communities we serve,” said Ed Heath, vice president of business development and community health. “Our desire is to work more closely with these physicians to expand our surgical service line and recruit additional surgeons to the practice.”
In addition to providing services in Perry County, the surgeons will continue to see patients at their present office location, at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital and at Owensboro Health Multicare Ohio County. Surgical services include general, vascular, non-cardiac thoracic, colorectal, breast, trauma, and head and neck oncologic surgery.
Physicians in the group see pediatric and adult patients and perform endoscopy.
Physicians in the practice include Drs. Brad Cornell, Tony Decker, Christopher Glaser, Roger Humphrey, Alan Mullins, Christopher Nebel and Robert Schell. Dr. John Falcone will join the group in September.
Owensboro Health is a community-based, nonprofit hospital serving an 11-county region in Western Kentucky and southern Indiana, operating with a mission to heal the sick and to improve the health of the community.
