It’s a new partnership for the new year! Kneibert Clinic, a multispecialty clinic in Poplar Bluff, Mo., is joining Saint Francis Healthcare System. As of today, January 1, all providers at Kneibert Clinic are Saint Francis Medical Partners – physicians and providers employed by Saint Francis Healthcare System.
Months in the making, this carefully considered and thoughtfully planned alliance will benefit both healthcare organizations and the patients they serve. Saint Francis will grow its Medical Partners group by more than 20 providers – adding a trusted team of experts in internal medicine, family practice, women’s health, pediatrics, psychiatry and behavioral health, endocrinology and sleep disorders. In return, Kneibert Clinic’s health professionals will have direct access to Saint Francis’ powerful resources, state-of-the-art facility and expert specialists.
As population health continues to grow in healthcare, enlisting this team of local, long-standing primary care providers and specialists as Medical Partners is a natural next step in improving the quality of care Saint Francis provides to its patients throughout the region.
“Welcoming Kneibert Clinic to our Saint Francis Family further expands our regional presence and offers additional opportunities to collaborate with regional partners,” explains Steven C. Bjelich, FACHE-D, President and Chief Executive Officer at Saint Francis. “The Kneibert Clinic team’s scope and expertise in the Poplar Bluff area adds to our growing accessibility for our patients.”
