Thirty doctors who were previously employed by Uniontown Hospital in Fayette County are now working for a company that is owned jointly by the hospital and UPMC, according to James Proud, vice president of human resources and marketing.

Plans to create Fayette Physician Network were announced last year. Proud said the 30 doctors, which include general practitioners and specialists, began to work for the jointly owned company on Jan. 1.

Proud said the jointly owned company allows Uniontown Hospital to benefit from UPMC's expertise in physician management.

Proud said Uniontown Hospital remains an independent, nonprofit facility.
