NEWTON - Newton Memorial Hospital is proud to announce the addition of Andria Pennant, M.D., to the Hospital family.
Initially hired on an interim basis by Women’s Health Care, Dr. Pennant quickly earned a reputation among patients for her excellent bedside manner and skilled surgical work, including laparoscopic procedures.
“It was clear to us that she would be a valuable member of our practice and would provide wonderful care to our patients,” said Donald Rubino. “She is a skilled, caring professional who compliments our staff greatly and will only enhance the care the Hospital provides.”
Dr. Pennant received her undergraduate degree from the Seton Hall University. She graduated from Meharry Medical College and did her residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey which she completed in 2006.
She was drawn to the family atmosphere at Newton Memorial Hospital and saw the potential to meet an ever growing need to provide obstetric and gynecological care to the Sussex County community which remains one of the fastest growing counties in the state.
She has delivered many babies and is knowledgeable in all areas of gynecology. Dr. Pennant has special interests in laparoscopic procedures and management of abnormal cervical cytology and colposcopy.
“This area has so much to offer me in terms of quality of life,” Dr. Pennant said. “I also am able to use my skills to do what I do best, meet the healthcare needs of the women who rely on us. I am very excited to see what the future holds.”
