New Elmwood Park Family Doctors Offer Walk-In School Physicals
Loyola Center for Health at Elmwood Park Offers Convenient, Compassionate Care
MAYWOOD, Ill. – The Loyola Center for Health at Elmwood Park opened this week, bringing the extensive Loyola network of physicians and care providers to residents in Elmwood Park.
In addition to the new name, the center will be staffed by three board-certified family physicians Camilla Larsen, MD, Jessica McIntyre, MD and C. Kimi Suh, MD. They will join established internal medicine physician Emanuele Morso, MD, who will continue to see patients at that location.
“We understand how busy parents are this time of year and it can be difficult to schedule a back-to-school physical. That’s why we are offering school physicals without an appointment,” said Sandy Brehm, practice director for family medicine at the Loyola Center for Health at Elmwood Park. “We want to expand primary care and health resources to our neighbors here in the Elmwood Park area.”
Camilla Larsen, MD, received her medical degree from University of Washington School of Medicine. She received her residency training at the Loyola-Provident Family Medicine residency program in Chicago. In addition to her excellence in clinical care, she brings a passion for optimizing individual health and a strong interest in medical ethics. She has received several teaching awards from medical students and residents. Larsen also has experience developing community clinics and is an avid volunteer.
Jessica McIntyre, MD, received her medical degree from Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine and completed her residency training at Georgetown University-Providence Hospital in Washington, DC. Her research has included the prevalence of eating disorders among Hispanic women, diabetes quality initiatives in the urban setting and improving breast-feeding rates in an urban hospital. She has held numerous committee positions and held leadership roles in the Cook County-Loyola-Provident Family Medicine residency program.
C. Kimi Suh, MD, earned her medical degree from Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine and completed her residency training in family medicine at West Suburban Hospital Oak Park. Before joining Loyola, Suh was in several professional programs and served on hospital committees. She was medical director of the PCC Lake Street and was part of the West Suburban Hospital family medicine residency program faculty. Suh’s interests include women’s, children’s and adolescent health as well as preventive medicine and treating patients with asthma.
Drs. Larsen, McIntyre and Suh will follow patients at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital in Melrose Park and see patients at the Loyola Center for Health at Elmwood Park, 7255 W. Grand Ave.
