I’m proud to announce that my brother, Dr. Andrew Williams, has joined the CP Family Health Care Center in upstate New York as its medical director. Andrew is a great physician and is extremely dedicated to serving uninsured and underinsured patients.
Here’s an excerpt from the announcement:
Dr. Andrew Williams, M.D., FACP, a board certified, Harvard-trained internist will join CP Family Health Center in Canton, NY as a full time clinician and Medical Director in August. Dr. Williams joins us from the University of Rochester Medical Center where he was a full time member of the medical school faculty and recipient of numerous honors including the Lawrence Kohn teaching fellowship and the Arthur W. Bauman award.
Dr. Williams is originally from Boston, Massachusetts. He graduated from the University of Rochester Medical School with honors and was elected to the AOA medical honor society. He completed his residency training in Internal Medicine at Harvard Medical School’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital. As a National Health Service Corps Scholar, he served as physician and Chief of Staff at Northern Navajo Medical Center in New Mexico. While working for the Public Health Service, he was an Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. In 2006 he was elected as a Fellow in the American College of Physicians (FACP) based on his leadership, scholarship, community service, and patient care…
CP Family Health Care, operated by Cerebral Palsy Association of the North Country, views the addition of Dr. Williams as a major step toward fulfilling its goal to provide quality health care and other services to all members of the community, regardless of physical barriers, and/or ability to pay. “Having Dr. Williams on staff will give our patients continuity of care. The comfort of knowing they will have the same physician from admission, to discharge, to follow-up when they need in-patient care is very important,” says Rebecca Washburn-Reynolds, Director of Health and Clinical Services for CP of the North Country. “His goals fit in nicely with our recent designation as a Federally Qualified Health Center,” says Washburn-Reynolds.
