QualDerm Partners Expands Network in Pennsylvania

Dermatology Clinics of Westmoreland County becomes Fifth Pennsylvania Practice Location to Join QualDerm’s Quality-driven Network

BRENTWOOD, TN (February 12, 2020)

QualDerm Partners, a company that creates market-leading dermatology practice partnerships through affiliations and de novo development, today announced Dermatology Clinics of Westmoreland County has joined the company’s network of affiliated physician-owned practices.

Based in Murrysville, Pennsylvania, Dermatology Clinics of Westmoreland County was founded in 1993, by Jeffrey Thompson, DO. The practice offers a full-range of general dermatology and skin cancer care for patients of all ages. In addition to Dr. Thompson, a board-certified dermatologist, the practice’s clinical staff includes Joyce Brun, a certified Physician Assistant.

“For over 20 years, we’ve provided our patients with the best possible dermatological care,” says Dr. Thompson. “This QualDerm partnership will help us grow and navigate industry challenges while keeping our commitment to providing the highest-quality care.”

Dr. Thompson earned his medical degree from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. After graduation, he served as a medical officer in the United States Navy, providing medical care for active duty personnel and their families. During this time, he was stationed in San Diego, California, Okinawa, Japan, and Portsmouth, Virginia. Dr. Thompson completed his dermatology residency at the Naval Hospital in San Diego. Throughout his career, Dr. Thompson has remained committed to helping advance the specialty of dermatology. He has been a featured speaker at several national medical conferences and provided a dermatology lecture series for physicians in training.

A QualDerm partnership gives dermatology practices access to management support, guidance and capital for growth. Since its founding, QualDerm has earned a reputation for keeping quality as its core focus. The foundation of QualDerm’s partnership model is clinical autonomy and physician leadership, which has allowed the company to partner with some of the highest-caliber dermatologists and Mohs surgeons in the U.S.

In 2018, Zitelli & Brodland, P.C. affiliated with QualDerm. That partnership marked the company’s entrance into the Pennsylvania region. Today, QualDerm has a total of 43 practice locations in Pennsylvania, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Ohio and Georgia, with plans to expand further this year.

“We’re excited that Dermatology Clinics of Westmoreland County has joined the QualDerm network,” says Bill Southwick, Chief Executive Officer of QualDerm. “Dr. Thompson and his staff are known for providing top-notch care to their patients. We look forward to helping them expand patient access to care across Pennsylvania.”
