Dr. Mary Pendergrass joins OMC Medical Group

Dr. Mary Pendergrass recently joined Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Medical Group and her practice is located in the Highland Park Medical Complex next to OMC Urgent Care. Dr. Pendergrass joins Dr. Druery Dixon and Dr. Jose A. Atiles in providing family care by appointment. Dr. Pendergrass also will be seeing primary care patient at OMC Mountain View on Wednesdays.

“I decided to go into medicine because I feel that people in rural areas--particularly this rural community--deserve the same level of access and quality of care as people who live in cities,” Dr. Pendergrass said. “I believe that the best place to work toward my goal is with OMC. Over the past fifteen years since I decided to go into medicine, it has become evident that OMC is striving towards increased access and quality of care for the community.”

Dr. Pendergrass is from Bakersfield, Missouri, and earned her medical degree from A.T. Still University-Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed her undergraduate degree from University of Missouri—Columbia.

Prior to coming to OMC, Dr. Pendergrass was a family medicine physician at Cox Health Regional Clinic in Willow Springs, Missouri. Her residency was at Skagit Valley Hospital in Mount Vernon, Washington.

“We are very excited to welcome Dr. Pendergrass to the OMC medical staff,” said OMC President and CEO Thomas Keller. “Her compassion for helping our local community members is overwhelming.”

Dr. Pendergrass has a 21-month old daughter and in her spare time enjoys gardening, interior design, reading, and bluegrass music.
