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.
