MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — A health care partnership hopes to alleviate a projected shortage of primary care physicians in north-central West Virginia and southwestern Pennsylvania.

Mon General Hospital, Cornerstone Care Teaching Health Center and Mountain State Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training Institutions, Inc. plan to offer a family medicine residency program.

Mon Health System president and CEO Darryl Duncan says the program is a way to recruit new physicians to the area.

The three-year program will be offered at Mon General in Morgantown, beginning July 1. It will be funded by a federal grant. Up to four residents can be accepted each year.
