Primary Care Specialists has joined the Regional One Health family. The practice transitioned to Regional One Health, and the physicians and nurse practitioners in the practice are now part of UT Regional One Physicians.
“The acquisition of Primary Care Specialists is another indicator of our progress at Regional One Health and a positive for patients as we increase access to care,” said Reginald Coopwood, M.D., president and CEO of Regional One Health. “Adding a primary care practice in the Midtown area gives more health care options as we cover from Downtown to East Memphis.”
Primary Care Specialists is the fifth primary care site at Regional One Health, adding an important central location to the current sites in Downtown, North Memphis, South Memphis and East Memphis. The office is located in the Chickasaw Oaks Plaza at 3109 Walnut Grove Road. Primary Care Specialists will continue to provide care for the whole family, including well-woman care, pediatrics, family and internal medicine, minor medical procedures and urgent care.
Led by physicians Jeffery Warren, M.D., and Bradford Pendley, Ph.D., M.D., the practice also includes six nurse practitioners who have joined UT Regional One Physicians. Dr. Warren earned his doctor of medicine degree from Duke University School of Medicine and is board certified in family practice. In addition to family practice, Dr. Warren has been trained and certified in emergency medicine.
Dr. Pendley earned his doctor of medicine degree from The University of Tennessee Health Science Center and his Ph.D. from Cornell University. Dr. Pendley is board certified in internal medicine.
“The Primary Care Specialists providers are leaders in the area of family medicine, and we are excited to bring them into our practice,” said Randy Sites, executive director of UT Regional One Physicians. “Their experience and expertise is a strong complement to the more than 200 providers of UT Regional One Physicians.”
With this new affiliation, Primary Care Specialists patients will have increased access to the medical specialties provided by UT Regional One Physicians, as well as to the outpatient and inpatient services at Regional One Health. Patients will benefit from increased care coordination, including being part of the upcoming launch of Regional One Health’s new electronic health record.
“I’m impressed with Regional One Health’s leadership and its people, but most importantly, its mission,” Dr. Warren said. “This new relationship makes it possible to maintain my practice and also do what is best for our patients. This affiliation allows us to stabilize our practice in an environment where it can be difficult to find a primary care doctor.”
According to Dr. Warren, Primary Care Specialists likes to be a one-stop shop where people can go to receive medical care for the whole family. He is excited to continue this model for their patients and increase access to Regional One Health’s outpatient facilities.
