New name for Hospital professional center


   After an in-depth review involving multiple stakeholders to include caregiver, community, and physician input, Mountain View Hospital is unveiling a new name and logo for Mountain View Professional Center.
   The practice will be known as Mountain View Medical and Surgical Associates and will operate under its new status as a provider-based clinic directed by Mountain View Hospital.
   The new name better reflects the clinic's mission to provide multi-specialty services.
   A new logo accompanies the name change. The "tree of distinction" reflects the broad scope of practice representing a proud, integrated team. The new name and logo will be phased in over several months.
   Mountain View Medical and Surgical Associates will feature the family practice of Dr. Nicholas Turek, and obstetrics and gynecology practice of Dr. Edward Shapiro.
   Other specialty services such as cardiology, neurosurgery, general surgery, and podiatry care will continue to be offered by visiting physicians from the region.
   To further meet the growing demands of the community, there is a comprehensive plan to further expand specialty services to incorporate internal medicine, orthopedic surgery, ophthalmology, ear, nose and throat, oncology and dermatology care.
   "This is an exciting time for healthcare for our local communities. With our plans to expand our specialty services, the organization is on its way to becoming a premier health center working collaboratively with our local family practice providers," said Jay Henry, chief executive officer of Mountain View Hospital.
   To schedule an appointment at Mountain View Medical and Surgical Associates, call 475-4800. New patients are welcome and all insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid, are accepted.
