Fetter Health Care Network Offering OBGYN Services at Thaddeus J. Bell, MD Family Health Center in Summerville

Summerville, SC – Fetter Health Care Network’s OBGYN, Larry Wilson, MD, will be moving with his team to the organization’s Thaddeus J. Bell, MD Family Health Center location in Summerville this August. Dr. Wilson previously served patients at Fetter’s downtown Charleston location.

“I’m confident this move will greatly benefit Fetter Health Care Network’s patients,” said Dr. Wilson. “So many of our existing OB patients are close to Summerville and we look forward to providing the same quality care in a more convenient location.”

Dr. Wilson graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Medicine in 1989. He completed his residency in obstetrics and gynecology in 1993 at the Medical University of South Carolina. Dr. Wilson became board certified by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1995 and has 25 years of private practice experience. He provides a full range of obstetrics and gynecological care.

“Our team at Fetter is excited about this transition,” said Aretha R. Jones, CEO of Fetter Health Care Network. “We are thankful to be able to further serve our OB patients with the help of Dr. Wilson and his phenomenal team.”

The Thaddeus J. Bell, MD Family Health Center in Summerville opened in 2018, named after the Fetter board member and prominent Charleston healthcare provider. This center includes many other services aside from OB care and features a full-service, on-site pharmacy. There is also a team on-site dedicated to case management and financial eligibility assistance. This center receives HHS funding and has Federal Public Health Service (PHS) deemed status with respect to certain health-related claims, including medical malpractice claims, for itself and its covered individuals. The Summerville location is also a recognized Patient-Centered Medical Home and offers translation services for patients who do not speak English.

Fetter patients can still receive general, pediatric and women’s health care at each of their permanent and seasonal locations. To schedule an appointment, call (843) 821-3444, come into the office or use MyFetterHome to schedule an appointment. If patients are unable to keep their appointments, it is encouraged that they call the center 24 hours in advance.

Fetter Health Care Network expands school-based program

Charleston SC – Fetter Health Care Network continues serving the community through its partnership with Charleston County School District, continually offering a variety of healthcare services, including dental, to students within local schools: Baptist Hill Middle High School in Hollywood, Jerry Zucker Middle School of Science in North Charleston and Minnie Hughes Elementary School in Hollywood.

“Our students will greatly benefit from Fetter’s additional services that focus on school-age children,” said Vanessa P. Brown, Baptist Middle High School principal. “So many of our students have limited access to quality, affordable care, and we are so thrilled to be able to grant them this service with the Fetter Health Care Network.”

Fetter’s clinical providers work alongside nursing, case management and support staff to provide basic primary care, comprehensive dental services, screenings, immunizations, and referrals to students and staff.

“We are delighted to expand our efforts through our school-based programs that help the future of our communities: our children,” said Aretha R. Jones Powers, CEO of Fetter Health Care Network. “We want to help them succeed by providing accessible quality healthcare.”

Fetter Health Care Network receives official Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition

Charleston, SC – Fetter Health Care Network, a Federally Qualified Health Center with over 20 locations throughout the Lowcountry, has officially received recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH).

“We are thrilled to be acknowledged by NCQA’s PCMH Recognition program,” said Aretha R. Jones Powers, CEO of Fetter Health Care Network. “Not only will it enable us to continue to provide affordable quality healthcare to our patients, but it will also help us improve the patient experience and develop more meaningful relationships with those that we serve in our communities.”

Fetter Health Care Network received recognition by demonstrating satisfactory performance in having team-based care and practice, knowing and managing patients, having patient-centered access and continuity, practicing care management and support, ensuring care coordination and care transitions, and consistently measuring performance and improving quality.

“When you choose a Patient-Centered Medical Home, you can count on receiving comprehensive care services that are fully focused on the patient from a strong team of providers,” said Ms. Powers. “A PCMH also delivers care that is accessible to patients and centers must demonstrate a commitment to quality improvement to continually strive to provide the best care possible. Our mission and values here at Fetter mirror those of the PCMH Recognition program and we are thankful for this accreditation.”

NCQA’s PCMH program is the most widely-adopted evaluation program in the country, with approximately 13,000 practices recognized. The patient-centered medical home model of care has been research-proven to enhance both patient and staff satisfaction while reducing healthcare costs. More than insurance providers support NCQA recognition.
