This month five Conemaugh Physician Group Primary Care doctors have relocated their practices to the Greater Johnstown Tech Park, prompting Conemaugh Health System to change the name of the 5-year-old facility to Conemaugh Medical Park.
“We feel this new name better reflects the focus of the building,” says Dr. Brian Lieb, Conemaugh Physician Group Physician Leadership Chairman. “We successfully introduced Conemaugh Physician Group- Cardiology to the building this summer and response from patients has been very positive. Conemaugh Physician Group is now the largest tenant at the Medical Park. Patients like the convenience of the facility particularly the easy parking and enhanced patient areas. Creating an excellent patient experience is at the core of these changes. We expect additional Conemaugh Physician Group practices to relocate to the Medical Park in the future.”
Conemaugh Physician Group – Primary Care brings 20 additional employees to the facility, which follows the addition of 42 physicians, physician assistants and staff members, from Conemaugh Physician Group- Cardiology and Conemaugh Memorial Nuclear Medicine, who moved into the site this summer. Twelve volunteers also work out of Conemaugh Medical Park to help with the growing volume of patients served at this location. Patient volumes at this location are expected to reach nearly 25,000 visits per year with the current group of physician practices.
Conemaugh Medical Park is ideal for patients. Parking is free and convenient with a large, flat lot and a canopy for easy and comfortable drop off. The spacious physician offices provide ample room for new technology and comfortable waiting and examination areas for patients and their families. The space also provides a more efficient operation for Conemaugh Physician Group and the opportunity to grow volume through an enhanced patient experience.
“Our patients have been very pleased with our new location,” says Dr. Roshan Patel, Conemaugh Physician Group – Cardiology. “They appreciate the convenient parking, the benefits of a new facility and the ability to have testing done right on site.”
On December 10, 2012, five primary care physicians opened their practices at the Medical Park. They include; Dr. Phillip Gvozden, Dr. Samuel Massoud, Dr. Shriram Sirsikar, Dr. Harry Pote and Dr. John Yokitis. The Conemaugh Medical Park location also includes space for additional primary care physicians as the practice grows.
“You cannot underestimate the importance of your relationship with your primary care physician,” says Dr. Samuel Massoud, Conemaugh Physician Group –Primary Care. “Having primary care physicians come together at this convenient location allows us to enhance our services as well as potential efficiencies. Patients will remain with their physician of choice but now there will be a network of physicians working together. I think our patients will be very pleased.”
Patients and the general public will be invited to a free health screening and open house at the new Conemaugh Physician Group -Primary Care - Medical Park location after the holidays.
