Pocono Medical Center recognizes that increasing access to care plays a vital role in its mission towards building a healthier community, which is why on November 3, 2015, we will announce the opening of Pocono Medical Center’s Physician Associate’s Primary Care Office at 1089 Route 390, Mountainhome, Pennsylvania.
What was formerly known as the Tattersall Medical Center in Mountainhome is now home to Pocono Medical Center’s Physician Associate’s Primary Care Office where the community of Barrett Township can receive convenient, excellent care without the need to travel far. The renovated, handicap-accessible building has 6 exam rooms and a lab room as well as 3 offices including the physician’s office, a triage station, and an office for patient consults. “It has been a distinct pleasure to work with the staff from Pocono Medical Center during negotiations and through the renovation phase,” said Gregory Batzel, President of the Tattersall Medical Center.
The office will offer an array of comprehensive services provided by highly skilled and dedicated family medicine physicians and CRNPs (certified registered nurse practitioners). The physicians and CRNPs will be able to offer preventative care, immunizations, and management of medical conditions for patients of all ages – from infancy to geriatrics – at this location. There will also be phlebotomy services for most routine lab orders and the ability to perform EKG’s (electrocardiogram) as well.
“We are very excited to have Pocono Medical Center opening their primary care office. We all look forward to a long working relationship with the new medical staff,” said Batzel. Pocono Medical Center is proud to serve the communities of Monroe County and will continue to look for opportunities to provide excellent care, closer to home.
