Shen Valley Family Practice Is Closing
It comes with a Heavy Heart that we have decided to close the primary care clinic office in Shenandoah. The Town was instrumental in its opening and helped it to grow and we respect that an appreciate that VERY much. We still have mixed feelings about this decision but several financial and personal factors went into this decision, some of which, out of our control. In the end, the decision was made to close and start to help our current patients find new providers now, rather than continue to attract new patients to possibly have to turn them away later if problems continued and could not be easily resolved. I am hopeful that in the future, and in a different time of my life, along with improved healthcare changes, that opening a small town clinic may be more sustainable for an NP clinic to have more stability to move forward.
We started notifying a few of our patients last week but this week we have started to call all of our patients and sending out letters. Our last day will be January 18th and we will be working on transitioning care for our patients over the next few months.
I want to personally thank all of you for all you have done and hope you understand how hard this decision was for us. You all are great people and do soooo much for this community. I feel terrible that the practice is closing but I will still work hard to be part of the community and want to continue to help see it improve.
Matt Yoder, SVFP
