(Honesdale, October 18, 2006)…Born at Wayne Memorial Hospital, raised in Hawley, Susan Simpson Mowatt, MD, is back home and excited about opening her Family Medicine practice in her hometown.
“Both my husband and I are from this area and our children’s grandparents—both sides—are here,” said Dr. Mowatt, “and I’m just thrilled to be back. I can’t wait to get to work!”
And working now she is—officially. Dr. Mowatt opened “Keystone Family Practice” and began seeing patients this week out of her new office on Main Avenue in Hawley (formerly occupied by Dr. Marilyn Pardine).
Dr. Mowatt received a Bachelor of Science degree from Georgetown University in Washington, DC, and later earned her Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree from Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey. She began her professional career in Williamsport, finishing up a Family Practice residency program and then joining a private practice affiliated with Susquehanna Health System. Dr. Mowatt was Medical Director of Loyalsock Family Practice before she decided to return home to Hawley.
A recipient of many honors and awards, Dr. Mowatt received her board certification in Family Practice in 2001. She joined the staff of Wayne Memorial Hospital this month.
“We welcome Dr. Mowatt to Wayne Memorial and the community,” said David Hoff, Chief Executive Officer of Wayne Memorial Health System. “It is especially gratifying to see a local resident come back to share her knowledge and skill with her hometown community. It is a reflection of respect on both sides, and we at Wayne Memorial are very pleased to benefit.”
Dr. Mowatt will have office hours from 9am – 6pm Monday through Friday, with some evening hours yet to be decided. Her address is 227 Main Avenue, Hawley and her phone number is (570) 226-6077.
