FCHS Recruits Gynecologist

April 11, 2018

(Strathroy, ON) – The Middlesex Hospital Alliance (MHA) is pleased to announce that Dr. Niharika Chandra has joined the Four Counties Health Services (FCHS) medical team.  Dr. Chandra is a specialist in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and joined the Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital (SMGH) in 2017.  In May 2018, she will expand her practice to FCHS and provide access to quality gynecological health care to women in Newbury and the surrounding areas.

At FCHS, Dr. Chandra will provide a wide range of gynaecological services. Her monthly ambulatory care clinic at FCHS will be used for outpatient services such as IUD insertions, pessary care and colposcopy, and for the medical management of many gynaecological disorders. Dr. Chandra will also perform gynaecological surgeries at SMGH, including but not limited to endometrial ablations with hysteroscopy, treatment of mild endometriosis, ovarian cyst removal and hysterectomy.

Her passion for women’s health led her to pursue her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Western University following the completion of her medical training at McGill University. She feels privileged to be able to share her expertise with the women of this community.

“The warmth of the people and the culture is what initially attracted me to MHA,” said Dr. Chandra.  “I am looking forward to expanding my practice at FCHS to serve the patients from that area.  I believe I can provide a seasoned approach to patients and their referring doctor, while incorporating some of the newest techniques my specialty has to offer.”

“FCHS is excited to welcome Dr. Chandra to the organization.  As an integral part of our renewed vision for patient care at FCHS, her arrival significantly enhances our ability to provide specialty services to our community” said Rosemary Frketich, VP Clinical Services and CNO.

MHA Deputy Chief of Staff Dr. Jon Dreyer said, “It is exciting to see the scope of our outpatient clinics growing at Four Counties.  The addition of a gynecology clinic here will make it much easier for women in our community to receive this care closer to home when they need it”.
