New General Surgeon Joins FCHC Date Posted: 4/28/2015

Fulton County Health Center is pleased to announce that Patricia A. Mahoney, MD, a Board Certified General Surgeon, has joined the FCHC medical staff. Dr. Mahoney received her medical degree from the University of South Dakota School of Medicine in Vermillion, South Dakota. She completed a General Surgery Residency at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine in Columbia, South Carolina and a second General Surgery Residency at Fairview Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio.


Dr. Mahoney has also received specialized training in the surgical treatment of breast cancers as well as laparoscopic and endoscopic procedures to perform surgeries such as hernia repairs, gall bladder removals, and colon resections.


“I’ve had the opportunity to work with world-class surgeons in large metropolitan hospitals,” says Dr. Mahoney. “But I grew up in small towns, and I wanted my three sons to have the same opportunity as I did growing up in a smaller community. In Wauseon, I can work hard and contribute to people’s health, but I can also go home at night and spend time with my family. Plus, we are only a half-hour away from a larger city and its offerings.”


Dr. Mahoney says she was attracted to Fulton County Health Center because she and Patti Finn, FCHC CEO, share the same philosophy when it comes to health care. “We both agree that patients do best if they can remain in their own community to receive their medical care, surrounded by family and friends who are their support network. The Health Center has been quite successful in bringing physician specialists here. That broadens the level of services they can provide to patients, and that increases their ability to keep patients in town and surrounded by their support system.” She says those in-town physician specialists also help her surgical practice by their patient referrals.


On a personal note, Dr. Mahoney is married with three sons. Her husband is retired from the United States Navy. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family as well as playing a variety of musical instruments, reading, and drawing.


Dr. Mahoney’s office, West Ohio Surgeons, is located in the West Ohio Building, 735 South Shoop Avenue, on the southwest corner of Fulton County Health Center’s campus. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Mahoney, call 419-337-7478.
