“It is our mission to provide high-quality care and convenient access to health care services for our patients,” said Shelley Neal, vice president, KentuckyOne Health Ambulatory Services. “The primary care and diagnostic services available at the Tates Creek location provide an opportunity for patients to seek quality diagnostic and primary care closer to home.”
In addition to the Saint Joseph Outpatient Care Center, the facility also features a primary care practice housing four physicians. The new Saint Joseph Primary Care Associates includes Dr. Ben Rambicure, Dr. Karla Groves, Dr. Michelle Wrightson and Dr. Mauverine Hall.
