Newton Medical Center (NMC) announced today the addition of Dr. Derek Moore to the hospital’s emergency department.
“We are excited to have Dr. Moore and his in-depth experience in emergency medicine,” said Dr. Colin Windham, medical director of emergency services at NMC. “We will be looking to him to help NMC raise the bar in the care of our patients by reviewing processes and bringing the latest developments in emergency medicine to the facility.”
“I chose emergency medicine because it gives me the opportunity to experience something new every day,” said Dr. Moore. “But when I chose to join NMC, it came down to the people. Everyone is welcoming and easy to work with, which is very different from past experiences. I’m looking forward to helping to care for people in this community.”
Dr. Moore attended medical school at A.T. Still University at the Mesa, Ariz. Campus and completed his residency at St. John Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
