Urologist Joins Southern Tennessee Regional Health System - Lawrenceburg
September 27, 2017
Southern Tennessee Regional Health System - Lawrenceburg officials announce the addition of urologist, Dr. Kelly C. Baldwin to the medical community. Dr. Baldwin will be opening Southern Tennessee Urology this fall and will have office locations in both Lawrenceburg and Pulaski.
“We have wanted to provide the community with urological availability and service for quite some time,” said STRHS - Lawrenceburg CEO, Jeff Noblin. “Residents in Lawrence and surrounding counties have had to travel for this particular specialty and it will be so nice to have a full-time urologist right here in our community. Ironically, we tried to recruit Dr. Baldwin to Lawrence County about 3 years ago, but he ended up accepting a competing opportunity in Murfreesboro. Apparently, Lawrence County made such a positive impression on him, we were one of the first opportunities he pursued when considering a new practice location.”
Dr. Baldwin received his undergraduate degree from Providence College in Providence, Rhode Island and he spent one year at Harvard University Extension School in Cambridge, Massachusetts participating in a pre-medical program. He received his medical degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where he also completed his medical internship. Dr. Baldwin completed his general surgery residency at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia and then his urologic surgery residency at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine where he also served as Chief Resident.
Noblin said Dr. Baldwin indicated that patient need was a primary reason he decided to open a practice in Lawrenceburg. It has been quite some time since full-time urology was offered in Lawrence and surrounding counties and the addition of urological services will provide residents in the area with convenient and quality care. . Dr. Baldwin’s services include but are not limited to urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, interstitial cystitis, prostatitis, enlarged prostate, kidney stones, sexual dysfunction (male and female), vasectomy, and more.
Mr. Noblin concluded by saying the addition of an urologist solidifies the hospital’s commitment to making communities healthier. “As we continue to grow and add specialists and services, residents in greater-Lawrence County can have confidence in knowing that top-notch care is available close to home.”
Southern Tennessee Urology will be located at 190 Prosser Road in Lawrenceburg and 1275 East College Street in Pulaski. For additional information call (931) 766-3732.
