Avita Health System has announced the addition of 10 new physicians and advanced practice providers (APP) in Crawford and Richland counties.

“We’re passionate about providing high-quality medical care within the community,” explained Jerry Morasko, President/CEO of Avita Health System. “Since day one, we’ve focused on recruiting an exceptional medical staff to provide care locally. We don’t think patients should have to travel far for specialty care or services. We want everyone to have access right here. By adding 10 new providers in 5 months, we want our patients to know that we hear you and we care.”

In June, Avita welcomed Arthur Papadopol, MD to their family medicine team. In August, Anna Gantz, CNP joined pain management and Timothy Tausch, MD joined urology. September started with the addition of Justin Eagleston, MD to bariatric “weight-loss” surgery and general surgery, Jeffrey Wilson, MD to urologyTimothy Shin, MD to ENT, and Tabitha Hofer, CNP to endocrinology. Starting this week, Gregory Surfield, MD is offering plastic and reconstructive surgeryAnjuli Eagleston, MD has joined internal medicine, and Mo Saab, DO re-joined the interventional cardiology team.

Morasko added that several more providers will be joining at the start of the year. “The pandemic slowed down our recruiting efforts, but now we’re getting back to our roots and continuing to expand our team. The more physicians and APPs that join Avita, the greater our ability to serve patients. That is our ultimate goal.”
