“We’ve seen a tremendous response from the community,” David Hess, M.D., president and CEO of Reynolds, said. “There’s a lot of excitement to see Reynolds delivering babies again. The addition of Dr. Carlson will allow women and families to receive the highest quality of care without traveling far from home.

Carlson previously worked for Magee Women’s Specialty Services at UPMC Horizon in New Castle, Pennsylvania. She completed her residency at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, after graduating from the Penn State College of Medicine.

“The most important thing to me is building a strong relationship with my patients,” Carlson said. “I’m looking forward to getting to know the people of the Ohio Valley and growing the obstetrics and gynecology services at Reynolds.”

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 24, at Reynolds Memorial. The event is open to the public and will include an open house of the newly renovated unit. Light refreshments will be served.
