CLEARWATER, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 09/22/16 -- KG Health Partners, Inc. (KGHP), a leading mobile podiatric care provider serving Florida's long-term care (LTC) facilities as a partner in the care continuum, announced today that it has acquired Access Foot Care, Inc., a group podiatry practice based in Tarpon Springs, Fla. With this acquisition, KGHP doubles the size of its physician and clinical support staff, allowing the company to better support its partner organizations across the state.
"Healthy feet are the foundation of good health and independence, especially for elderly residents in LTC," said Robert Metnick, DPM, principle podiatrist and founder of Access Foot Care. "Podiatrists are essential in the prevention of the vascular related complications so common in the geriatric community, but the exponential growth of the senior population and rapid advances in medical technology have become a big challenge for physicians, including myself. The resources and tools that KG Health Partners provides will allow me to better navigate this changing environment and focus on delivering my patients the care and attention they deserve."
A retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, Dr. Metnick has been caring for seniors in LTC for more than 25 years and has remained active in the local community, regularly visiting and supporting veterans at the local VA hospitals.
"Dr. Metnick's character and professionalism perfectly embody the values of the KGHP family," said Rob Cash, president of KGHP. "His unwavering dedication to his patients and their families will play an invaluable part in our continued mission to provide high quality patient care."
