Salvador Guerrero, D.O., F.A.C.S., board-certified general surgeon/board-eligible vascular surgeon, has joined the medical staff of Wayne Memorial Hospital. Guerrero is currently seeing patients at Honesdale Surgical Associates, a part of Wayne Memorial Community Health Centers (WMCHC), located at the Stourbridge Medical and Professional Complex.
He will also be holding office hours at the Pike Family Health Center, 750 Route 730 in Lords Valley beginning in December.
Guerrero joined WMCHC as a means of growing his practice he has said. "Wayne Memorial Hospital is expanding all departments including wound care," he stated. However, remaining within his own community was also important, "by staying local I can continue to treat patients living in Pike County."
Guerrero received his medical degree from the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine in Old Westbury, NY and performed his residency in general surgery at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. He completed a vascular surgical fellowship at the Deborah Heart and Lung Center in Brown Mills, NJ. Guerrero was recently affiliated with Bon Secours Charity Medical Group, a multi-specialty group practice located in Port Jervis, NY.
In addition to performing general and vascular surgery at Bon Secours Community Hospital, Guerrero served as the hospital’s wound clinic director. He lives in Milford with his wife, Claudia and their two children.
Wayne Memorial Hospital is said to be pleased to have the skills of two vascular surgeons available to its patients. J. Garry Wrobleski, Jr., D.O., F.A.C.O.S., general and vascular surgeon at United Surgical Associates, PC, in Carbondale joined the hospital’s courtesy staff in February of this year.
"With our increasing patient base Wayne Memorial will be well-served by the addition of a new surgeon," said David Hoff, Wayne Memorial’s chief executive officer. "For a facility of our size, we are proud of the range of surgical specialties we offer including orthopedic, vascular, gynecological, ENT, urology and neurosurgery."
Guerrero will be partnering with Brian Lenczewski, MD, who has been providing general surgical services at Wayne Memorial Hospital for the past three years. In addition to general and vascular surgical coverage, Guerrero will see patients in The Regional Wound Care Center and The Hyperbaric Center located within the hospital’s main building on Park Street in Honesdale.
