MU Health Care hires several former Pinnacle providers
COLUMBIA - MU Health Care and the MU School of Medicine announced that they have hired several former Pinnacle Regional Hospital family medicine doctors.
The three doctors hired are Mona L. Brownfield, MD, Robert H. Koch, MD, and family nurse practitioner Lori Weekley.
MU Health Care also hired Jennifer Hackman, a physical therapist, who also saw patients at Pinnacle Regional Hospital.
“We are pleased these providers are joining our team," Jonathan Curtright, MU Health Care chief executive officer, said. "They bring a wealth of knowledge in caring for families at all stages of life as well as a deep commitment to the people of Cooper County.”
MU is currently searching for a clinic location in Boonville, but until one is found, the recently-hired providers will see patients at MU Health Care’s Family Medicine - Fayette clinic.
A date for when the providers will begin to see patients will be set after they officially join the MU Healthcare team.
The news of the providers joining MU Health Care comes on the same day that Pinnacle Regional Hospital's parent group announced plans to reopen the Boonville hospital.
More details about how to schedule appointments with the providers will be upcoming.
