Tschetter & Hohm Clinic to Join HRMC
May 17, 2021
In anticipation of physician retirements and to secure the future of local health care in the community, Tschetter & Hohm Clinic will join Huron Regional Medical Center, according to Robert Hohm, MD, internist and physician partner of Tschetter & Hohm Clinic.
After caring for patients for more than 40 years in the clinic his family built, Dr. Hohm, was thinking of retirement and needed a plan. “My family has cared for patients at the same office since Christmas of 1949,” Dr. Hohm says. “My primary concern is to maintain local health care in the Huron area, and turning the clinic over to HRMC is the best way to do that.”
Tschetter & Hohm Clinic was founded after World War II by Drs. Paul, John and Joseph Tschetter and Drs. Paul and Ted Hohm. Nearly 30 years later, Paul’s son, Robert, joined the clinic after finishing medical school.
“This isn’t something we came up with on the spur of the moment,” Dr. Hohm says. “As the clinic’s partners plan to retire, I wanted to transition the clinic in an orderly fashion, before the transition turned into an emergency situation.”
HRMC plans to assume operations on July 1, 2021 and the physicians, providers and staff will become HRMC employees, but remain in the same building. While the clinic will change owners, Tschetter & Hohm Clinic patients can rest assured care will remain for future generations.
The same services will be provided, and a number of familiar faces will stick around. When the HRMC expansion is complete in summer 2022, employees and some of the providers will move into the HRMC Physicians Clinic.
To accommodate the retirements of Dr. Hohm and internist Dr. Greg Wiedel, HRMC has recruited two new internal medicine physicians who will arrive in the community in September of this year. Dr. Anthony Loewen, a general surgeon with New Life Clinic, and Dr. Richard Ellison, a general surgeon with the HRMC Physicians Clinic, will help to transition care of surgical patients when general surgeon Dr. Cy Haatvedt retires.
“The most important part of this transition is that our patients can continue to receive the care they’ve come to expect - without having to travel out of town,” said Dr. Hohm.
