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.
