Maternity nurse Sabrina Waters, RN, and Director of Maternal Health Services Rita Notestine, RN, adjusted a plaque hung in the maternity department at J.C. Blair Hospital recognizing J.C. Blair Obstetrician/Gynecologist Dr. Ken Lee for his 37 years of service at J.C. Blair. Dr. Lee most recently worked for J.C. Blair’s Women’s Gynecological Care Center which closed July 1.
Lee joined the medical staff in 1980 and delivered generations of babies from Huntingdon County and surrounding communities. He counseled infertile women on their choices. He is also a well-known surgeon, having pioneered the total laparoscopic hysterectomy, a minimally invasive procedure to remove the uterus.
Gynecological care will continue to be provided at J.C. Blair through the Women’s Care Center, a practice of the Broad Top Area Medical Center located on the 3rd floor of the hospital. Newly recruited obstetrician/gynecologist Dr. Diane Adams, along with Dr. Ralph Aldinger and nurse practitioner Romona Shope welcome new patients. The practice is located on the third floor of J.C. Blair Memorial Hospital. Appointments can be made by calling (814) 643-8866.
