QualDerm Partners Grows its Network in Ohio

Partnership will Help Blodgett Dermatology Expand Access to Care and Reduce Practice Management Burdens


BRENTWOOD, TN (December 30, 2020) 

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

Blodgett Dermatology, located in Bidwell, Ohio, was founded in 2005 by Thomas Blodgett, MD. The practice provides a full range of general, medical and surgical dermatology.

Dr. Blodgett is a board-certified dermatologist who has practiced for more than 20 years. He earned his medical degree from The Ohio State University College of Medicine and completed a dermatology residency at the Cleveland Clinic. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from Kent State University. In addition to Dr. Blodgett, the practice’s clinical staff includes Kyle Curry, a certified Nurse Practitioner, who joined the practice in 2008.

“We chose to join the QualDerm network based on their reputation for quality, both in terms of patient care and practice management,” says Dr. Blodgett. “Together with QualDerm, we look forward to expanding access to dermatology care for patients who live in Bidwell and the surrounding communities.”

QualDerm first entered the Ohio market in 2017 through a partnership with the Center for Surgical Dermatology and Dermatology Associates. Today, the company’s network includes 49 practice locations and centralized laboratory services across Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Delaware. QualDerm has plans to expand further in the coming year.

Practices that partner with QualDerm have access to highly-professional management support, capital and guidance for growth. True PartnershipSM is at the core of QualDerm’s model. Throughout the organization, physicians hold leadership positions, serving on the board of directors, regional joint operating committees and the Quality Council. This physician leadership and QualDerm’s dedication to physicians’ clinical autonomy ensure quality of care throughout the network is kept at the highest standards.

“For more than two decades Dr. Blodgett has provided his patients with the highest quality of dermatology care,” says Bill Southwick, Chief Executive Officer of QualDerm. “We’re honored Dr. Blodgett trusts us to help him expand services and grow his practice.”
