Holdenville General Hospital, a St. Anthony Affiliate, announces the acquisition of the Wewoka Medical Rural Health Clinic.
Expands Presence in the Greater Tri-City Area
Holdenville, Oklahoma, December 15, 2014 – Holdenville General Hospital (HGH) announced today that it will be acquiring the Wewoka Medical Rural Health Clinic. Glenn A. Crowson, M.D. and Amy Ashley, ARNP, as practice providers, will join forces with Holdenville General Hospital effective January 1, 2015 and will operate under the name of Holdenville General Hospital Wewoka Health Clinic. This clinic will be an addition to the other three clinics they currently own and operate – HGH Rural Health Clinic in Holdenville; HGH Physician Health Clinic in Holdenville; and HGH Allen Health Clinic in Allen. The acquisition represents an expansion in the greater tri-city area, where HGH already has a well-established presence.
Roberta Jeffrey, CEO of HGH, commented, “Dr. Crowson and HGH share a common vision which is to ensure the citizens of Wewoka have continued access to health care – now and in the future. Dr. Crowson has been a member of our active medical staff for many years. We have always considered Wewoka as part of our community and service area, since they are located only eight miles away.”
Wewoka Medical Rural Health Clinic has been providing quality care for its patients for the past thirty years. Dr. Crowson states, “With this acquisition, we are confident that going forward we can further enhance the valuable health services we provide the communities in Seminole County, Hughes County, and surrounding areas.”
Dr. Crowson will remain with the practice under HGH and will continue to provide quality care for the Wewoka area. The current employees of the clinic will also continue in their positions at the clinic after the change of ownership occurs. It is the goal to support and enhance the services offered while maintaining the great culture that has been in existence for so many years.
