SPH announces new provider joins team

South Peninsula Hospital welcomes Teresa K. Johnson, MD, a board-certified family practice physician to its active medical staff.

Dr. Johnson attended medical school at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, and completed her residency at the University of Kansas Medical Center / HCA Wesley Family Practice.  She practiced family medicine in Wichita, Kan., for more than 25 years before moving to Alaska this year.

 Dr. Johnson has a special interest in education and prevention of illness, women’s health, adolescent care and pediatrics, but enjoys caring for all ages, from newborn through seniors.

She is now accepting new patients at Homer Medical Center, and will sometimes be providing emergency care in the ER.  She and her husband join family members who already reside in the area, and they look forward to calling this home. 

 For appointments, call 235-8586.
