Family Medical Care Celebrates 10 Years of Service

Family Medical Care (FMC) celebrates 10 years of service today, April 1, 2015! Since it’s beginning, Family Medical Care has been committed to providing a place for quality care to the Ohio Valley.

In 2005, Family Medical Care started out in a small, 3-room office in Weirton with one family doctor and a nurse practitioner. Over the last ten years, Family Medical Care continued to grow and expand its services to meet the needs of the community.

Today, Family Medical Care is proud to offer two convenient locations in Weirton, WV and Wintersville, OH offering a full range of health care services ranging from family health, women’s health, oral health, mental health, and even an exclusive pharmacy, Family Care Pharmacy. With eight doctors, seven nurse practitioners, and other certified staff, Family Medical Care is able to provide the best quality care and compassion to its patients.

Family Medical Care is proud to be your medical home and hopes to continue many more years of service! Thank you for your support!

Our Wintersville office held an Ugly Christmas Sweater contest on December 18, 2014 to add a little Christmas cheer before the holidays. One of our medical assistants, Janica M., walked away as the winner and stands proudly with her trophy. Great job to everyone who participated!
