Monterey Bay Family Physicians (MBFP) has joined Dignity Health Medical Group! The highly-regarded and established primary care practice located at 1066 South Green Valley Road in Watsonville has served the community for more than 20 years and will continue to do so now under the Dignity Health Medical Group name.
“We remain committed to serving the Watsonville community as a family medicine practice,” said Dr. Robert Weber, founder, Monterey Bay Family Physicians. “As part of this partnership we look forward to creating broader and more integrated services for the community and continuing the advancement of high quality primary care in the region as part of Dignity Health Medical Group.”
MBFP includes three board-certified family medicine providers and one family Nurse Practitioner: Dr. Robert Weber, Dr. Clayton McDaniel, Dr. Ann-Marie McDaniel, and Leah Yurek, MS, FNP. There is nothing that current MBFP patients need to do as a result of this announcement. They can continue to see their same doctor at the same location and keep existing appointments. Their health plans will not change but billing and paperwork will reflect the new Dignity Health Medical Group name.
For the community, the Dignity Health and MBFP partnership will bring the opportunity for expanded access to high quality and affordable health care in the Watsonville and South County communities. Dignity Health Medical Foundation currently operates 17 clinic locations throughout Santa Cruz County and this will be their first clinic location in Watsonville.
