UPDATE: The number to call for patient charts is 215-471-2761 x 3000
While it may seem odd to patients, the medical records of a medical practice are one of the assets that are sold to pay off creditors in a bankruptcy. In the case of UHI, they were sold to Spectrum Healthcare. Spectrum had been contracted by the board of directors to provide management services to UHI for the past year, once the extent of financial problems became evident.
The charts are now at Broad Street Health Center, one of Spectrum’s two medical practices. Myron Sewell, MD is also working there seeing patients.
Obviously, the reason for a medical practice like Spectrum purchasing charts from a bankrupt practice is in the hopes that patients will consider using Spectrum for their care. Urban Health Initiatives no longer exists as a medical practice, so all patients must change, whether they are following their medical care providers or switching to new providers altogether.
Spectrum currently has locations in North Philadelphia and in West Philadelphia, though not yet in South Philadelphia. Should patients prefer to have their records with Eileen K Carpenter, MD, Urban Solutions, or a physician in another medical practice, Spectrum is committed to making sure those records are transferred.
