SVWC Employs First Full-Time Physician

While she has provided medical services to SVWC for some time, Dr. Paige Patterson became SVWC’s first employed physician in August. She also serves as the community’s medical director. Dr. Patterson is a board-certified family practice physician. She received her undergraduate training at Wake Forest University and obtained her medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine. Selma Medical Associates previously employed her.

Additionally, Karen Shank has joined SVWC as a part-time geriatric Nurse Practitioner. She has been in the nursing profession for almost 20 years. Karen attended Shepherd University and Liberty University to complete her undergraduate registered nursing degree. In 2021, she completed her master’s degree as an advanced practice nurse at Spring Arbor University, specializing as an Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner.

Our residents are thrilled to have access to these two professionals on campus.
