Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) February 04, 2013
As a leading geriatric house call practice in Pennsylvania and the South Jersey region, Dr. Christine Pluta, DO and her growing team of medical associates celebrated one year in business.
"It was so amazing to have so many people who helped to build Schuylkill Medical Associates finally meet one another. The positive energy was flowing. Many nurses from different agencies joined us, as well as our home podiatrist and optometrist, a Philadelphia Corporation for Aging lawyer and social worker, Virtual Health Care Management, pharmacists, therapists, friends and family,” says SMA director Dr. Pluta. “When we are out in the field seeing patients, it is rare that we get to meet our associates face to face. The anniversary celebration gave so many of us an opportunity to put faces to names.”
Due to a great team of people who believe in serving the homebound elderly, SMA is expanding its services in three counties: Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery. SMA is excited to move forward in to 2013 to continue keeping the elderly healthier at home.
For the past year, Schuylkill Medical Associates has been providing home bound elderly patients who live alone and are physically unable to travel to a primary care physician due to complex issues. SMA physicians provide chronic disease management, pain management, preventative care, end of life care, and communication with families and nursing.
