As part of WellSpan Health’s continual effort to offer quality healthcare services that are convenient for the people of central Pennsylvania's local communities, WellSpan is welcoming several new services and providers to Gettysburg.
Robert Rice, MD, Ph.D., already a familiar face to many people in Adams County, is now the lead medical oncologist for a new practice, WellSpan Medical Oncology, located in the WellSpan Adams Cancer Center.
Rice previously had been part of a private medical oncology practice that operated in the Adams Cancer Center since its opening in 2008. Fellowship trained in hematology-oncology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Rice will continue to be a strong asset to area patients as he helps to build this new practice.
With the formation of WellSpan Medical Oncology, the opportunity to expand and further develop the high level clinical services offered through the Adams Cancer Center continues.
This service makes it possible for residents to receive a continuum of care close to home, from diagnosis to specialized treatment options. All support services are connected through WellSpan’s comprehensive system of care.
One of the Adams County area’s growing needs in recent years has been in urology care. With the addition of a new WellSpan Urology practice in Gettysburg, access to urology care has become more convenient for patients in Adams County and northern Maryland. The WellSpan Urology practice in Gettysburg is led by William Daiber, DO.
Daiber joins WellSpan after serving the needs of patients in the Harrisburg area for many years. The practice is located in the WellSpan Washington Street Health Center (450 S. Washington Street, Suite E).
Also, WellSpan’s Gettysburg Surgical Associates (450 S. Washington St., Suite C) has welcomed Sachin Vaid, MD, to the practice’s complement of general surgeons.
Vaid joins the Gettysburg-based surgical practice after completing an internship and residency at WellSpan York Hospital. He completed fellowship training in colorectal surgery at Lehigh Valley Hospital. Vaid will focus on these types of procedures as well as other general surgery needs at WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital.
