Bothwell Regional Health Center (BRHC) has acquired Family Medicine Associates, a primary care medical clinic at 3401 W. 10th St. in Sedalia, effective May 1.

“The decision to acquire Family Medicine Associates came after careful consideration with the clinic physicians and our Bothwell family health providers,” said BRHC CEO Jimmy Robertson. “We believe this combination will allow FMA and Bothwell to provide increased access to primary care for this community.”

There will be few changes for patients at Family Medicine Associates. They will continue to see the same physicians and receive the same outstanding care at the West 10th Street clinic. Some patients, however, will benefit from the hospital’s larger insurance network. Those who have had to pay out-of-network fees most likely now will be in-network, including individuals on Medicare, Medicaid and the Missouri Health Insurance Exchange.

Bothwell Family Medicine Associates’ four family physicians are Julie Cahill, M.D.; Robert Frederickson, M.D.; Jeffrey Sharp, M.D.; and John Wendt, M.D. To make an appointment, call (660) 827-2883.
