Everywhere you look, healthcare is changing. Physicians, hospitals, and
other providers are coming together to help assure that patients receive
the right care at the right time from the right professional—all
the while avoiding duplication of services and spending healthcare dollars
as wisely as possible. Locally, Frederick Regional Health System has created
Monocacy Health Partners to help accomplish these goals.
Monocacy Health Partners (MHP) is an affiliation of practices representing
primary care, family medicine, and a wide range of specialties. As members
of the same umbrella organization, MHP member physicians and practices
work together by sharing patient information, coordinating the need for
diagnostic tests, conferring with one another about results, planning
recovery and rehabilitation programs, and ensuring that all medicines
prescribed are compatible with the overall treatment plan.
One of the newest practices to affiliate with Monocacy Health Partners
is Internal Medicine Associates, a highly respected practice serving Frederick
since the 1920s. As a Monocacy Health Partners member practice, Internal
Medicine Associates has gained access to additional practice management
features, including an electronic medical record system.
The busy practice has recently welcomed two new physicians: Dr. Bianca
Udugampola-Stewart and Dr. Yassin Mohamed.
A board-certified internal medicine physician, Dr. Bianca Udugampola-Stewart
completed her medical training in Internal Medicine at West Virginia University
School of Medicine, West Virginia University Hospital. She worked at FMH
as a hospitalist for seven years and specializes in wellness and preventive
medicine, obesity medicine, and weight loss. Dr. Udugampola-Stewart lives
in Frederick with her husband and two young children.
A board-certified internal medicine physician, Dr. Yassin Mohamed completed
his Internal Medicine residency at Abingdon Memorial Hospital in Pennsylvania.
He worked as an internal medicine physician at an Internal Medicine and
Nephrology Clinic in Alabama for 10 years before moving his family to
Frederick. Dr. Mohamed has a particular interest in diabetes, osteoarthritis,
and men’s health issues.
