Mohawk Valley Health System will suspend operations at their Mohawk Medical Office located on Ann Street in Mohawk beginning Monday, March 20th

The suspension of operations is due to the departure of the two physicians currently practicing at the office -- Doctors Steven Sperling and Paula Vecchio.

"The MVHS Medical Group has been working diligently to recruit primary care physicians to support the Mohawk office," said Michael Attilio, MD, vice president of MVHS Medical Group/Physician Practices. "However, we have been unable to recruit new providers that could start before Drs. Sperling and Vecchio leave. We want to make sure we support the continuous care for our Mohawk patients, they are very important to us. To do that, we need to suspend operations at the Mohawk Medical Office and refer our patients to other primary care services.

Officials say they're working with their Mohawk patients to assist them in finding new providers.

They say recruitment efforts are continuing and they'd like to re-open the office at a future date.
