SSM Health Southern Illinois has expanded its Weight Management Services program within the region by opening a new clinic location at Good Samaritan Hospital in Mount Vernon.
Expanding its clinic office outreach to Mount Vernon has been a goal for the program since first being introduced three years ago at St. Mary’s Hospital in Centralia, said Dr. Deepu Sudhakaran in a news release.
Along with Dr. Sudhakaran, Leah Clem, PA-C, will provide both pre- and post-operative services to bariatric surgery patients, as well as working closely with nonsurgical patients.
