Dr. Batterton says, “I have thoroughly enjoyed my 38 years of living and practicing medicine in Greene County. I would like to thank everyone for the many wonderful memories.”

GCGH CEO, Brenda Reetz says, “the GCGH family will miss Dr. Batterton’s compassion and dedication to his patients and to the hospital. It has been wonderful working with him. We wish him a happy and healthy retirement.”

To ensure his patients’ transition of care is as seamless as possible, Dr. Edward Chen, a physician joining the My Clinics from Merced, California, will assume care of Dr. Batterton’s patients. Patients may also choose another My Clinics’ provider or request to transfer elsewhere.
