Their office-based laboratory (OBL) will be converted into a fully credentialed Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) within 24 months
GLEN COVE, N.Y., Sept. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Healthcare Solutions Holdings (OTCPK: HSMD), a vertically-integrated health care system, today announced the expansion of the system’s healthcare services into the state of Missouri. This announcement is the beginning of a new partnership with Drs. Abdullah Arshad, MD, and Timothy McPherson DO. The doctors jointly own and practice at six of the largest multi-specialty medical clinics in Missouri’s Bootheel region. HSMD will expand patient access and capabilities in the existing clinics and build six new Advance Care Medical (ACM) facilities under the current agreement. Dr. Arshad has been appointed HSMD’s Director of Rural Missouri, and Dr. McPherson has been appointed HSMD’s Director of Clinical Operations.
HSMD aims to develop 75 Advance Care Medical centers, organically and through acquisitions, across the state of Missouri over the next 36 months. With limited access to outpatient surgery services in Missouri, HSMD believes that the conversion of the office-based lab into an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) will significantly elevate the level of care for the surrounding community. The company’s core goal is to provide comprehensive, affordable, and state-of-the-art healthcare to underserved populations throughout the United States.
Missouri is one of the four key markets HSMD has targeted for expansion into for the 4th Qt of 2022. HSMD’s national expansion plan will focus on semi-annually developing four to five new markets. With a three-year goal of providing healthcare in 36 markets and having over 300 medical facilities open to the public by 4th Qt 2025.
“HSMD is committed to investing in underserved communities to fill the gap in affordable health care options,” states Jonathan Loutzenhiser, Executive Director at HSMD. “We are pleased that Drs. Arshad and McPherson have joined our team. HSMD will bring nuclear medicine, mammography, and enhanced CT scanning capabilities to their diagnostic centers to ensure better health outcomes for a broader population of patients.”
Dr. Arshad has practiced internal and emergency medicine in Southeast Missouri for over 20 years, and Dr. McPherson has been in Family Practice for 30 years. Both doctors realize the burden placed on their patients, who sometimes must travel 100 miles to get specialized medical care, is unacceptable. “50% of the people in our Bootheel communities are underserved in their healthcare needs. I have strived my entire career to better serve the community I live in,” states Dr. Arshad. “HSMD’s investment will bring high quality and affordable healthcare back to rural America.”
