Eastern Ohio Pulmonary Joins NOMS Healthcare
The move took effect July 1, with the practice now named NOMS Eastern Ohio Pulmonary Consultants. The group has five doctors – Drs. Rebecca Bailey, Ritha Kartan, Anthony Boulos, Lawrence Goldstein and Manuel Bautista – who specialize in pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine, along with two nurse practitioners, a nurse clinical specialist and 12 other staff members.
“We’re looking forward to being associated with a bigger family that has more resources,” said Joni Smith, NOMS Eastern Ohio Pulmonary practice manager, in a statement. “We can’t thank everyone enough for making this process so smooth and positive. Everyone at NOMS corporate and the staff at NOMS Ankle & Foot Care Centers have been so great.”
NOMS Healthcare is based in Sandusky and established its local presence in early 2019 with its acquisition of Ankle & Foot Care Centers.
“We see the Mahoning Valley as a great area of opportunity,” said Rick Schneider, NOMS chief strategic officer. “As an independent organization, we look to partner with hospital systems and local physicians to create mutually beneficial relationships and there are some fantastic physicians in this area and we’d love to collaborate with them.”
