Nurse Practitioners Accepting New Patients

Two nurse practitioners in Bridgewater will begin accepting new patients today. It's the second intake since 600 patients were accepted in May. CEO of South Shore Health Dr. Peter Vaughan says officials expect the available spaces will be filled quickly. The nurse practitioners anticipate accepting 200 new patients during this intake. Vaughan says more patients will be accepted in the fall. Residents will need to set up an appointment with the NP's and can do that by phoning 527-4310. The practitioners have the ability to take up to 1,400 patients at full capacity.
