"This is a very good move for our patients, because the hospital offers 'full service,'" said Philip Horne, DPM. "If we need to order a lab test or an x-ray or vascular test, our patients won't have to go outside the facility. It's all one-stop-shopping."
The Carbondale location had once been affiliated with Marian Community Hospital, which closed last February.
"Wayne Memorial has a hometown feeling similar to Marian's," Dr. Horne continued, "we believe our patients will be quite happy there."
In addition to Dr. Horne, the following providers will also see patients at Wayne Memorial: Patrick Clauss, DPM; Joseph Marzzacco, DPM; Brian Kobylus, DPM; John Scanland, DPM and Terence Cochran, MD. They will join Doctors Jerome Casey, DPM, Edward Murray, DPM and Medical Director Mark Micciche, DPM at Wayne Memorial.
