Premier HealthNet Expands Presence In Warren County

Franklin Family Practice will open in community this August

FRANKLIN, Ohio (August 12, 2013) – Premier HealthNet expands its reach into Warren County this month as it opens its newest primary care medical practice in the Franklin community.

Franklin Family Practice, located in Franklin Square Office Center, at 8401 Claude Thomas Way, serves not only the nine-square-mile town of Franklin, but also the neighboring communities of Springboro, Middletown, and Carlisle. Joshua Ordway, MD, a graduate of the Boonshoft School of Medicine at Wright State University, opens the medical practice located near the intersection of Interstate 75 and State Route 73. He is excited about establishing deeper roots in Franklin, a community he already calls home.

“My vision is to work with patients of all ages and from many walks of life. The thing I love about practicing medicine is being able to build relationships with people,” said Dr. Ordway, who just completed his family medicine residency in Dayton. “That is what helped me decide to be a family medicine physician. I’ll be able to develop relationships with the families who come in and begin to understand what their lives are like at each office visit. Eventually, I hope to know the entire family.”

It’s a relationship that doesn’t end with office hours. Dr. Ordway looks forward to becoming active in the community outside the office by participating in area events. “I am hoping to be one of those doctors where people see me at the grocery store and feel comfortable enough to come up and say ‘hello,’ ” he added.

Dr. Ordway also can often be seen out and about in the Franklin community.  He enjoys running on neighborhood streets to stay healthy and in shape for races.   This month, Dr. Ordway ran in the Fit and Fabulous 5K in Springboro and won the race.

Additionally, Dr. Ordway has a deep commitment to medicine. Although he gained business knowledge and skills by pursuing his economics undergraduate degree at Princeton University, he continued his education by becoming a physician in family medicine through the Boonshoft School of Medicine.  

Despite the ever-evolving changes in health care, Dr. Ordway hopes to continue delivering the kind of one-on-one personalized health care in a patient-friendly environment that all patients should expect.

“I listen to my patients and we work together to establish health goals.  Then, I explain why I am doing things for them so that they are more likely to be on board with the plan,” he said.
