Effective February 1, 2010, William M. Carney, MD, General Surgeon, Conemaugh Valley Surgeons, assumed the role of Chief Medical Officer Conemaugh Physician Group (CPG).
Formerly called Conemaugh Health Initiatives, physician group leaders at Conemaugh Health System changed the name to Conemaugh Physician Group to more accurately reflect the identity of the growing physician-led organization, which includes more than 100 primary care physicians and specialists with practices in Cambria, Somerset, Westmoreland and Bedford counties.
This appointment is one of many that Dr. Carney, who is board certified in general surgery, has held at Conemaugh Memorial over the past 20 years.
