LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – A Medical Drive, Lower Pottsgrove, company that operates six local family doctors’ offices and nine specialty practices on Tuesday (Oct. 10, 2017) was named the winner of two awards from an international publication which focuses on health care and pharmaceuticals industries.
Pottstown Medical Specialists Inc. (PMSI), a physician-owned medical practice with offices in Montgomery and Berks counties, received honors as “Best Primary Care Provider – Pennsylvania,” and “Diabetes Specialist of the Year 2017 – North East USA,” in the 2017 Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards presented by Global Health And Pharma magazine. Its announcement represents the second consecutive year in which PMSI received the publication’s honors.
The 2017 Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Awards “seek to chronicle the individuals, departments and organizations, both corporate and public, that are working relentlessly throughout the industry,” according to the magazine. Its awards program strives to “showcase the talent and dedication which is apparent in this vast, tough industry,” it added.
PMSI’s win puts it in lofty company. Other award recipients named Tuesday were Duke University Medical Center, Johns Hopkins Medicine, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and the University of Rochester.
PMSI, first known as Deviney, Guthrie & Popolow Ltd., dates back to August 1978 when three separate practices on internal medicine were merged. It was renamed in May 1980.
Over the years, according to the firm, it has added gastroenterology, cardiology, pulmonology, nephrology, rheumatology, oncology, pain medicine, neurology, and education to its specialty roster. Complementing its physicians and specialties are ancillary services such as a nuclear cardiology camera, digital echo machine, infusion therapy, therapeutic pain injections, and diagnostic sleep center.
PMSI has also said it developed a six-location primary care division. Growth has been accomplished through acquisitions and mergers of other practices, as well as opening new, strategically located practices that stretch from Collegeville to Bally and cover a large, two-county geographic area.
