Maureen "Mo" Sorensen has been hired to serve as the practice manager for Madison County Hospital’s primary care group practice. The practice is scheduled to open later this year.
Mo brings more than 28 years of extensive management experience to MCH. She is a valuable addition and has knowledge in managing and delivering healthcare practice through the development, planning implementation and coordination of all practice programs and services.
"Primary care encompasses family medicine, pediatrics, general internal medicine and geriatrics," said Mo. "It is said that primary care is the backbone of healthcare. With the physicians and nurse practitioners, we look forward to being able to impact the health of our patients in a patient-centered facility."
As the practice manager, Mo will be responsible for developing comprehensive practice management responsibilities including clinical, financial, operational and human resource duties with the ultimate goal of consistently achieving the best quality patient care.
Mo received her degree as a Licensed Practice Nurse from the Marymount School of Practical Nursing in Cleveland and practiced at the University Hospitals Bedford Medical Center for 13 years. As a practice manager, Mo has worked for the South Suburban Women's Center in Cleveland and for the Upper Arlington Family Practice and Center for Integrative Medicine, both part of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
"I am honored to be a part of the new primary care practice at MCH," said Mo. "We are excited to collaborate with the current group of exceptional physicians at MCH and we know that this venture will offer London and the surrounding communities an additional place to rely on for outstanding healthcare, especially with the resources from Madison County, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Mount Carmel Health System."
The new primary care practice will be located on the second floor of the Park Avenue Medical Building on the MCH campus. The practice will feature 16 exam rooms and accommodate up to six providers, including physicians and nurse practitioners. MCH is actively recruiting new physicians to join the practice and meet the healthcare needs of Madison County residents. Construction is set to be complete by June.
