Daleville, VA, March, 2016 – The first of March, the LewisGale Daleville Medical Pavilion opened its doors to a new family medicine practice and started offering cardiology services, the first of several specialties coming to this location. Over the coming weeks, Obstetrics and Gynecology care will also be available, as well as Pediatrics, to meet the growing need for healthcare services in this community.

This is the first time LewisGale has offered some of these specialties in Botetourt County.

“We know how important it is for our patients to have access to convenient, high-quality medical care and that is why we are excited to expand our services in this community,” said Jon Bartlett, CEO, LewisGale Regional Health System. “With our imaging center already on site, the addition of these new specialties will provide a one-stop shop for multiple services. We see this as a new opportunity to invest in the health of the communities we serve.”

For nearly five years, The LewisGale Imaging Center Daleville has offered local residents access to advanced technology including digital mammography, X-ray, CT and ultrasound. The imaging center will now serve as an important resource for the adjoining physician practices.

Henry Burgess, MD, a Family Medicine provider, was the first to move into the pavilion. He relocated his LewisGale Physicians’ practice from Bonsack to the facility on March 1. Dr. Burgess treats patients of all ages and also offers onsite lab services. His office is open Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4:30 pm. For more information, patients can call 540-966-6430.

Interventional Cardiologist Shmuel Shapira, MD, also offers office hours at the pavilion. He provides onsite EKGs and specializes in the management and treatment of a range of cardiac-related conditions including coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, peripheral artery disease, hypertension, and arrhythmias. For more information, patients can call 540-772-3430.

In April, two OB-GYNs, Elizabeth Barwick, DO, and Abby Smith, MD, will offer comprehensive obstetric and gynecological care at the pavilion including annual GYN visits at the pavilion. They also specialize in the evaluation and treatment of incontinence and menopause. For more information, patients can call 540-772-5900.

Starting in late summer, LewisGale Pediatrics will start seeing patients at the pavilion.

“We consider it a privilege to serve the residents of Botetourt County and neighboring communities and to provide them with LewisGale physicians closer to home,” said Bartlett.
