FHN Closing Weight Management Retail Location

6/26/2012

FHN has announced that its weight management retail location in Monroe will close at the end of the business day on Friday, July 27. This storefront facility was opened in 2008 to offer weight management services that are not intended as a long-term health choice for patients.

"The higher-volume product life cycle of this retail offering appears to have run its course," said Mark Gridley, FHN Vice President Physician Affairs. "It therefore makes sense to close the Monroe facility so that we can focus resources on our core services and clinical offices."

FHN weight management services will continue to be offered as a retail (cash) option at other FHN offices in Stockton and Freeport, as well as by Beth Kalnins, MD, at the Orangeville office. The one FHN employee associated with the Monroe location will be assigned to another FHN office.

The FHN Family Healthcare Center in Orangeville is also expanding to include the services of Tanya Guntly, PA-C. Tanya joins Jeffrey Schleich, MD in delivering team-based, patient-centered care, resulting in more appointment times and making it easier for patients to schedule visits. As a physician assistant, Tanya conducts physical exams, treats illnesses and injuries, develops and carries out treatment plans, provides preventive healthcare counseling, sutures wounds, orders and interprets lab tests, and writes prescriptions. She will also provide weight management services.

To schedule an appointment with Jeffrey Schleich, Tanya Guntly, or Beth Kalnins in Orangeville, call the office at 815-789-3100 or toll-free 866-417-0536.
