Consolidated Government leaders today introduced the physician who has been chosen for the citys new Employee Health and Wellness Center.
Dr. Rhoda Donat-Flowers will practice at the clinic, 200 10th Ave., across from the Medical Centers emergency room, when the clinic opens May 1.
I am excited to be part of the The Health and Wellness Centers initiative toward revitalizing primary care alongside TransformHealthRx (the company hired to operate the clinic), Donat-Flowers said. In the face of crippling healthcare costs, the city has made a pivotal move towards achieving greater efficiency in healthcare delivery via a model that has proven to be successful in other cities.
Retired city human resources director Tom Barron, who spearheaded the effort to open the clinic, said he looks forward to seeing his vision come to fruition.
I couldn't be more excited about opening the doors to our new Health & Wellness Center and believe that the services provided by the Center will make a big difference in the lives of many employees, retirees and their dependents, Barron said.
Flowers attended Montclair State University in New Jersey where she received her Bachelor of Science in 2001. She became a doctor of osteopathic medicine in 2006 and completed residencies at Barnert Hospital of New Jersey and Columbus Regional Health Care System.
She is board certified in Family Practice and certified in Fundamental Critical Care Support (FCCS), Basic Life Support (BLS), Advance Trauma Life Support (ATLS), and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
Donat-Flowers is an employee of TransformHealthRx and not the Consolidated Government, so her salary is not public record.
