WellSpan Health is pleased to announce that York ENT Associates has signed a letter of intent to join the Wellspan network of providers, with an expected completed transition date in December.
The integration of York ENT Associates with WellSpan Health will allow the organization to continue to provide comprehensive otolaryngology care for the greater community. This includes expert medical and surgical care for voice and swallowing disorders, hearing loss and balance disorders, nasal and sinus disease, complex head and neck cancers, sleep apnea, pediatric ENT disorders, and thyroid and parathyroid disease. The team of five physicians, five audiologists and an advanced practice provider will continue to care for patients at their current location - 924 Colonial Avenue in York.
“York ENT Associates has an excellent reputation in our community for caring for patients with a range of ear, nose, and throat conditions as well as head and neck cancer. They have been a committed partner, providing complex care to Wellspan Health patients. Our long-standing relationship will only strengthen with this positive progression of our partnership,” said Tony Aquilina, executive vice president and chief physician executive, WellSpan Health. “We are pleased to welcome these compassionate and skilled specialists to WellSpan Health.”
“Since 1966, our mission has been to provide expert, comprehensive and compassionate care for disorders of the ear, nose, and throat to the patients of our community. WellSpan Health shares these interests and our core values. I believe that joining the WellSpan Health team will provide opportunities for the continued strategic growth of our services through access to health education, cutting edge technology and information systems and community outreach programs,” said Dr. Andrew Shorb, Partner at York ENT Associates.
Providers and transitioning staff will become members of WellSpan Medical Group upon completion of the integration in December. Phone numbers, hours of operation and the current location in York will remain unchanged.
York ENT Associates and The Hearing Center at York ENT will join existing WellSpan ENT & Hearing Services which currently offer a full range of services related to ear, nose and throat conditions at offices located in Carlisle, Waynesboro, Chambersburg and Greencastle.
