WHS doctors groups merging, moving to Park Place

Two internal medicine practices affiliated with Washington Health System are merging and moving.

Physicians Richard B. Hart II, Douglas T. Corwin Jr. and Henry A Folb, and nurse practitioner Mary Ellen Rhoa are forming Washington Health System Internal Medicine. They will practice at Park Place at the Meadowlands, 1000 Park Place, Suite 209, with a targeted start of June 20.

Park Place is just east of Route 19 and Racetrack Road in North and South Strabane townships. The newly merged foursome – all members of Washington Physicians Group – will be in North Strabane, where the majority of the project is located.

Hart, Corwin and Rhoa work together at 190 N. Main St., Washington. Their practice is called Washington Health System Internal Medicine – North Main, but after the move, those three will see patients only at Park Place. But a practice with which it shares a waiting room, WHS Family Medicine – North Main, will remain at that location.

Folb practices at Washington Health System Internal Medicine – Houston, at 22 W. Pike St. That office will close following the move.

Teresa Babyak is director of operations for the physicians group.

The first businesses opened at Park Place in October 2013, at the BFS superstore near the entrance.
