Aaron Medical Center Signs Partnership Agreement With Ephraim Mcdowell

This article first appeared in issue 21, and was written by Staff.

Aaron Medical Center, the area's largest medical practice, is now a partnership with Ephraim McDowell Health, Danville.

Dr. Phil Aaron will remain as CEO under the new plan. Dr. Aaron pioneered seven-day-a week, 365-days-a-year primary health care in the 1980s, and has earned national recognition for innovations in health care delivery. His father, Dr. Oris Aaron, was one of the first physicians to use mid-level, or collaborative professionals when he added a physician assistant to his practice, and AMC has continued that practice.

Ephraim McDowell Health, the new partner, operates health care centers in Lancaster, Liberty, Stanford, and Springfield and is opening a center in Russell Springs. Some 20 specialties are represented at the hospital, and their involvement with AMC will be one of the major benefits to AMC patients, according to EMH CEO Tom Smith.
