Wayne Memorial Health System has announced that Patrick J. McAndrew, Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, has joined Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers (WMCHC).
70-Year Family Practice
Dr. McAndrew’s practice, McAndrew Family Medicine in Vandling, will now be called the McAndrew Family Health Center. The new name recognizes the legacy provided to the community for over 70 years of collective service by Dr. Patrick McAndrew, his brother, the late Dr. Richard McAndrew, and their father, the late Dr. Lorain McAndrew, who established the practice in the 1930s.
“I decided to affiliate with Wayne Memorial because the hospital is a community-based facility,” stated Dr. McAndrew, “and I enjoy working with local people.”
Dr. McAndrew said he has also been impressed over the years with many of Wayne Memorial Hospital’s services, particularly regarding timely test results and quality patient care. “The lab at Wayne Memorial is excellent,” he noted. “I receive almost all of my patients’ test results within a day.”
Dr. McAndrew has been treating patients within the Forest City, Vandling, Pleasant Mount and Carbondale area as a primary care physician for nearly 40 years. He is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his internship at Delaware Valley Hospital in Bristol, PA. Dr. McAndrew holds memberships in several professional societies including: American Osteopathic Association; Pennsylvania Osteopathic Medical Association; Pennsylvania Osteopathic General Practice and American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians.

Susan M. Bonin, MPAS, PA-C, physician assistant, will continue to work with Dr. McAndrew in the evaluation, treatment and education of patients as she has for the past 10 years.
