Anthony Cardell, MD, executive director and chief medical officer, Mount Nittany Physician Group, is pleased to announce the addition of three family medicine physicians to Mount Nittany Physician Group’s Mifflin County practice. Eric Fowler, MD; Kimberly Kolonich, MD; and Michael Murray, MD, are joining Mount Nittany Physician Group and will begin practicing in January 2014 in the Physician Group’s new Reedsville location, enabling the physicians to continue a combined 55 years of practice in Mifflin County.
The new facility, at 96 Kish Road in Reedsville, Pa., expands access to care with the Physician Group’s new family medicine practice, as well as Mount Nittany Physician Group Urology, Cardiology and General Surgery. These specialty services will move from their current location at 301 S. Logan Boulevard in Burnham, Pa. to the new location in Reedsville in January 2014, joining the new family medicine practice.
“We are excited to welcome Drs. Fowler, Kolonich and Murray to our group. Their affiliation allows us to expand our facilities and the scope of services for our patients,” said Dr. Cardell. “In addition, we are proud to work with other doctors in the area to serve our patients in Mifflin County, as well as contribute to the local economy.”
Mount Nittany Physician Group has provided cardiology and urology services in Mifflin County since 2011, and has recently grown with the addition of general surgery services this year.
Formerly Brown Township Elementary School, the new Mount Nittany Health – Mifflin County facility will feature 12,500 square feet of space, with 15 exam rooms, two procedure rooms, two nurses’ stations and an area for phlebotomy/lab services. Set for completion in early 2014, the renovated facility will include primary and specialty care with room to add more services in the future. The facility will also have the potential to become a teaching location for third-year medical students who have clinical rotations at Mount Nittany Health.
