E. Blair Warner Family Medicine Center
As a resident at Memorial, the E. Blair Warner Family Medicine Center will be the base for your ambulatory patient care continuity experience. This busy practice is home for both resident and faculty physicians. We are conveniently located directly across the street from Memorial Hospital and the attached Beacon Children’s Hospital.
The Center completed expansion in 2016, doubling our space. We now have 28 exam rooms, a second surgical procedure room and a radiology suite. Our clinic population is diverse across medical conditions, ages, gender and ethnicity and includes large pediatric and obstetrical panels. We continually strive to incorporate preventive medicine into our patient care, and we use a fully integrated electronic health record system.
Each clinic is staffed by two family medicine physicians, either faculty or community preceptors, who are readily available to discuss patient care and to teach and supervise office procedures. Your obstetrics and gynecology education and experience are supplemented by the availability of OB preceptors several times per week in our clinic. Our Behavioral Medicine Director in the clinic supports the development of strong patient-physician relations and communication.
A hallmark feature of our program is the support we receive from administration and hospital leadership. Hear from Larry Tracy, Memorial Hospital’s President, about how the residency program impacts the health system and the greater South Bend community.
Dr. Patterson is a graduate of Memorial Family Medicine Residency Program, a former faculty member, and a previous program director.
