Mon General, Cornerstone Care honor soon-to-be graduates

Posted Date: 6/6/2016
Mon General Hospital and Cornerstone Care celebrated the upcoming graduation of its first class of Family Medicine Residency physicians during a banquet celebration June 3.

The Teaching Health Center Family Medicine Residency is a vision shared by Cornerstone Care Inc., a network of Federally Qualified Health Centers in southwestern Pennsylvania; Mon General Hospital and Mountain State Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training Institutions, Inc.
The program was created to help address the physician shortage and train its physicians in the areas of primary and preventative care.

“This is a proud moment,” said Cornerstone Care CEO Robert MtJoy. “It’s taken vision and partnership from many people to make this work.”

Four graduates will be completing the program this summer:
  • Jane Bush, DO, of Summersville, WV - Dr. Bush accepted a position in Summersville, WV.
  • Meagan Chianumba, DO, of Oak Hill, WV – Dr. Chianumba accepted a position in Summersville, WV.
  • Autumn Lemley, DO, of Prosperity, PA (Waynesburg, PA area)- Dr. Lemley accepted a position in Clarksburg, WV.
  • Gabrielle Sakellarides, DO, of Springfield, VA – Dr. Sakellarides accepted a position with Mon General Hospital Primary Care in Core, WV, and will begin in early September.
“Mon General is honored to be a partner in the creation of this new residency program,” said Brian Hawthorne, MD, Mon General Hospital Vice President/Medical Director. “We’re excited to welcome Dr. Sakellarides to our medical team later this summer.”
For Dr. Sakellarides, the Family Medicine Program gave her an opportunity to practice rural medicine. 

 “The program was a great experience with a good mixture of different specialties,” she added. “We learned how to treat patients in the out-patient setting.”
