ATLANTIC GENERAL HOSPITAL AND HEALTH SYSTEM WELCOMES NEW PROVIDER TO THE OFFICE OF ATLANTIC GENERAL PRIMARY CARE IN OCEAN VIEW

Berlin, Md. Atlantic General Hospital and Health System is pleased to announce that Kieran Py, MD, has joined the Atlantic General Primary Care practice in Ocean View, Del.

Py will provide much-needed primary care to residents of Ocean View and the surrounding area. A graduate of Ross University School of Medicine in Dominica, West Indies, he volunteered with the Salybia Mission Project to provide basic medical care to residents in underserved areas for two years.

Py performed his clinical rotations at teaching hospitals in Long Island, Brooklyn and Queens, N.Y., and completed his residency in family medicine at Northwell Health’s Southside Hospital in Bay Shore, N.Y. He is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Medical Association.

“We are so happy to have Dr. Py join Atlantic General Health System,” said Jim Brannon, vice president of professional services. “With Dr. Socha’s departure last fall, the growing Ocean View community had even fewer primary care options. Dr. Py will be a great fit, and we hope to expand access with the recruitment of an additional physician soon.

Py is providing care alongside certified registered nurse practitioner Amanda Wainwright. For additional information or appointments, please call 302-541-4460.
